EDMONTON, ALBERTA – September 15, 2020 -- Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX-V: GZD; Frankfurt: G6H; OTCQB: GZDIF) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it is initiating its 2,000+ metre (“m”), 11+ hole core drill program on the Ket 28 high-grade gold (“Au”) property, situated on its Greenwood Property, located in an established, road accessible and historic mining district in southeastern British Columbia. This program is the first phase of drilling at Ket 28, designed to further test the currently defined Au mineralized zone, leading to the development of a maiden mineral resource estimate. The initial Ket 28 drill program is expected to cost approximately $500,000 and will be the primary focus of the 2020 phase 1 exploration program.
As final preparation for phase 1 drilling at Ket 28, Grizzly engaged technical experts who completed archeological and wildlife studies in concordance with British Columbia legislation. Grizzly contracted Full Force Diamond Drilling Ltd., who are mobilizing their equipment and personnel to commence drilling within 10 days. Grizzly is finalizing drill collar locations and is undertaking consultation with local landowners, First Nations groups and government officials in relation to the Phase 1 drilling program.
