EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire -09/22/11)- Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX-V: GZD.V - News) (OTCQX: GZDIF.PK - News) (Frankfurt: G6H.F - News) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Lone Peak Drilling of Kimberley, British Columbia, will shortly commence drilling on the Company's 100% owned Greenwood Gold Project, a 225,000 acre contiguous block of mineral claims centered on Greenwood, British Columbia. The Company commenced ground exploration in early May. Drill permits were recently received from the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines for the Ket 28, Dayton and Motherlode target areas; a 4,000 to 5,000 m surface diamond drilling program on these and a number of new target areas is planned. Lone Peak Drilling has initiated equipment mobilization with the intent to commence drilling late this week or early next week.
Current Exploration Status
The Stage 1 field-based exploration program which began in May 2011 continues. The program consists of extensive ground geophysical surveys including: induced polarization ("IP") surveys; horizontal loop electromagnetic ("HLEM") surveys; Promis electromagnetic ("EM") surveys; magnetometer surveys; prospecting; rock and soil sampling. This work is coupled with geological mapping at existing targets including: Copper Mountain, Ket 28, and the Dayton area as well as new targets identified by detailed analysis of airborne geophysical surveys conducted in 2008 and 2009. To date, approximately 6,700 soil samples and 394 rock grab samples have been collected and shipped to ALS Chemex in Vancouver, British Columbia. More than 94 line-km of IP surveys (at 9 targets), more than 75 line-km of ground HLEM and Promis EM surveys, and more than 105 line-km of ground magnetic surveys have also been completed.
New Targets for Follow-up Exploration
The 2011 fieldwork has identified coincident IP or HLEM anomalies with spatially associated gold in soil anomalies of greater than 100 parts per billion (ppb) gold at the Copper Mountain, Overlander, P2, P4, P5 and B4-B5 target areas. Additional gold in soil anomalies have been identified in conjunction with IP anomalies at previously drilled targets including Ket 28, Dayton and the Motherlode areas. Anomalous rock grab sample with greater than 5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold or greater than 1% copper, in most cases, are spatially coincident with magnetic or EM anomalies that have been identified at the Overlander, Motherlode, P5, B7, Ket 28, Dayton and the Copper Mountain target areas. A number of the gold in soil anomalies and anomalous rock grab samples that are spatially associated with geophysical anomalies, including HLEM and IP anomalies are targets to be drill tested during this program. A number of the anomalies are also coincident with historic workings that have, to the Company's knowledge, never been drilled.
Additional land use applications for drilling have been submitted to the Ministry of Energy and Mines in Cranbrook, British Columbia and are being processed for approval for the Copper Mountain and Overlander target areas. Drilling applications are in progress for the P2, P4, P5 and B4-B5 target areas. Drilling will commence shortly and continue through to the end of November, 2011. Grizzly has planned a minimum budget of approximately $1.2 million for 4,000 to 5,000 metres of diamond drilling on the Greenwood Gold Project in 2011.
All 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.
