EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire -11/02/11)- Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX-V: GZD.V - News) (OTCQX: GZDIF.PK - News) (Frankfurt: G6H.F - News) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") and Pacific Potash Corporation (TSXV: PP.V - News) ("Pacific") are pleased to announce that they have completed site preparations at the 50:50 Provost Property near Provost, Alberta to drill the first well on the property at the 10-11-40-1W4M location.
The 50:50 Provost Property is jointly owned by Grizzly and Pacific, and initial potash exploration drilling on the property in 2011 is funded jointly by Grizzly and Pacific in proportion to their respective 50% interests. The drill rig has been mobilized to the prepared well site 10-11-40-1W4 location. Drilling at the 50:50 Provost Property should commence shortly. This exploratory well and the 1,460 metre well just completed by Pacific at its 100%-owned Provost Property, adjacent to the jointly owned 50:50 Provost Property, are believed to be the first exploratory wells drilled in Alberta to test specifically for Potash.
Within the Region and underlying the 50:50 Provost Property lies the potash-bearing Patience Lake Member of the Prairie Evaporite formation. The Patience Potash Member is anticipated to range from three to ten metres thick, at depths of 1,300 to 1,450 metres. It is anticipated that drilling of the exploratory well at the 50:50 Provost Property will require approximately 7 to 10 days to complete and geophysically log.
All Grizzly 2011 field and office exploration programs are conducted under the supervision of Mr. Michael Dufresne, M. Sc., P.Geol., a principal of Apex Geoscience Ltd. and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
