EDMONTON, ALBERTA – October 10, 2013 -- Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX-V: GZD; OTCQX: GZDIF; Frankfurt: G6H) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") has completed reviewing its recently received independent technical report on the Greenwood Property (the “Report”), announced by the Company on September 30, 2013, and has selected the Ket 28 prospect as the priority for near-term exploration at the Greenwood Project in South-central British Columbia.
The independent technical report (the “Report”) was completed by Michael B. Dufresne (a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”), of Apex Geoscience Ltd. (“Apex”) of Edmonton, Alberta and has been prepared in compliance with NI 43-101. The Report will be filed on SEDAR within 35 days.
PLANNED EXPLORATION – KET 28
The Report identifies high priority drill targets at the Ket 28 prospect, located within the Rock Creek claim group of the Greenwood Project, at which historic drilling in 1994 intersected high grade gold with 52.19 grams per tonne of gold (“g/t Au”) over 3.35 m core length. Drilling by Grizzly in 2009 and 2010 at the Ket 28 prospect following up the historic drilling in the mid 1990`s yielded up to 2.77 g/t Au over 11 m core length and 8.75 g/t Au over 3 m with a higher grade zone of 11.90 g/t Au over 2 m core length. Wider intervals of lower grade mineralization were intersected as well with 1.02 g/t Au over 13.5 m core length and 1.19 g/t Au over 10.35 m core length.
The Company’s exploration program, based on recommendations in the Report and currently being planned, will focus on the Ket 28 prospect where the gold mineralization is open along strike and to depth and requires further drill testing. The proposed 1,250 metre drill program will target the gold-prospective zone in the central portion of the Ket 28 prospect, with the intention of developing a maiden mineral resource estimate. The initial Ket 28 drill program is expected to cost approximately $350,000 and is subject to financing.
All of the mineral claims in the Rock Creek claim group are 80% owned by Grizzly and 20% owned by Mineworks Ventures Inc., a private corporation based in Vancouver, BC, as an interest carried to a production decision resulting from a feasibility study.
Grizzly CEO, Brian Testo, stated “Our extensive land position on the Greenwood Property hosts numerous mineralized areas, which the new technical report has outlined. Our focus is to develop a high grade gold resource estimate that can lead to production potential. We believe the Ket 28 prospect has such potential, and this will be the first of several recommended stages of exploration to accomplish our goals in this prolific region of southeastern BC”.
