EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire -03/22/12)- 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, has been engaged to commence drilling on the Company's Greenwood Gold Project, a 225,000 acre contiguous block of mineral claims centered on Greenwood, British Columbia. The Company is currently planning to commence a 1,000 to 1,500 m surface diamond drilling program by the end of March to test new targets identified by sampling and ground geophysical surveys conducted during 2011 at the Overlander and P5 Target areas, both in the Mount Attwood area. Lone Peak Drilling has initiated mobilization of its drill with the intent to commence drilling late this week or early next week.
Overlander and P5 Targets
The 2011 fieldwork has identified coincident Induced Polarization (IP) chargeability or Horizontal Loop Electromagnetic (HLEM) conductivity anomalies with spatially associated anomalous gold (Au) in selected rock grab samples and soil samples at the Overlander and P5 target areas, both of which are within 2.5 km distance from AMT Industries Canada Inc.'s Golden Crown gold deposit. At the Overlander target area, exploration during 2011 yielded 55 soil samples with greater than 50 parts per billion (ppb) Au up to 546 ppb Au. Rock sampling during 2011 also yielded a total of 9 selected rock grab samples from the Overlander area with greater than 1 gram per tonne (g/t) Au up to 37.9 g/t Au. At the P5 target area, selected rock grab sampling yielded up to 7.3 g/t Au. Soil sampling yielded a total of 13 soil samples with greater than 50 ppb Au up to a maximum of 789 ppb Au. Discreet HLEM conductivity or IP chargeability anomalies associated with the Au in rock and/or soil sample anomalies will be the focus of the upcoming drilling program at these target areas.
Current Greenwood Deal Status
Grizzly is pleased to announce that during the 2011 exploration program the Company completed and surpassed the total expenditure requirements, which totals $CDN 4.1 million, for all three Greenwood Project Option Agreements, including the Greenwood-Copper Mountain, Sidley-Dayton and Rock Creek Gold JV Options. By the end of March, once all cash and share payments are made, the Company will own a 100% interest in all of the lands in the Greenwood-Copper Mountain and Sidley-Dayton options agreements, and an 80% interest in all of the lands that are part of the Rock Creek Gold JV agreement.
