Grizzly 2019 Greenwood Exploration Plans
Grizzly has been issued drilling permits for the Ket 28 area from the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines. The permits are for up to 25 drill sites and up to 10,000 metres of diamond drilling. The Company has planned an initial 11 drill targets at the Ket 28 prospect, located within the Rock Creek claim group of the Greenwood Project. The initial Ket 28 drill program is expected to cost approximately $400,000 to $500,000, and the Company is seeking flow through financing for this drill program. The program will target a gold-prospective zone in the central portion of the Ket 28 prospect where the gold mineralization is open along strike and to depth, with the intention of expanding the currently defined mineralized zone and developing a maiden mineral resource estimate.
Historic drilling in 1994 intersected high grade gold with 52.19 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 near-surface intervals of lower grade mineralization were intersected, with 1.02 g/t Au over 13.5 m core length and 1.19 g/t Au over 10.35 m core length.
