Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - November 3, 2022) -  Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSXV: GZD) (FSE: G6H) (OTCQB: GZDIF) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received results for a number of rock grab samples collected from this summer's rock sampling program (Figure 1). Analytical results have been received for a total of 141 rock grab samples. Additional results for a number of other targets areas and 15 core holes that were completed in September as the Phase 1 drilling program will be provided as they become available.


  • Setting is the East Contact of the Toroda Graben with numerous pyroxenite-monzonite-diorite (older) and younger QFP-diorite (Tertiary) intrusions into intermediate-mafic volcanics.
  • A total of 141 rock grab samples collected during prospecting at the Sappho Target during 2022.
  • Five (5) new sulphide showings discovered during the field work, with 4 of the 5 showings yielding rock grab samples with >1% copper (Cu) up to as high as 7.25% Cu (Figures 1 and 2).
  • A total of 17 rock grab samples returning values >1% Cu up to 9.06% Cu, many also with anomalous gold (Au), silver (Ag), platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd).
  • A total of 11 samples have yielded >500 parts per billion (ppb) Pt and Pd up to 4.64 grams per tonne (g/t) Pt and up to 2.28 g/t Pd.

Brian "Griz" Testo, President & CEO of Grizzly Discoveries, states "New results are providing significant targets indicated by high-grade copper samples at surface. Anomalous geophysics are also outlining multiple new targets across the Sappho Project. Grizzly will continue to define these targets to the drill ready stage for the potential to define new discoveries. I would like to express deep gratitude to our outstanding prospecting team, Sebastian and Cache, for finding new showings at both the Sappho and the Midway Mine."

The Sappho area is being targeted for copper-gold skarn and porphyry type targets associated with a Jurassic alkalic intrusive complex and several younger diorite intrusions (Figure 1). A total of five new showings of copper oxide mineralization have been found during the 2022 program (Figures 1 and 2b). Previous surface sampling and drilling by Grizzly has yielded significant anomalous copper, gold, silver along with platinum and palladium. Numerous historical and new rock grab samples have yielded greater than 1% Cu, 1 g/t Au, 1 g/t Ag, 1 g/t Pt and 1 g/t Pd (Figure 1). Historical 2010 drilling by the Company (4 core holes) has yielded up to 0.31% Cu, 0.75 g/t Au, 0.34 g/t Pt, 0.39 g/t Pd and 6.57 g/t Ag over 6.5 m core length in skarn at Sappho (in hole 10SP03), including 1 m core length intersections of 3.82 g/t Au and 199 g/t Ag, and in a separate sample 1.83 g/t Pt and 2.09 g/t Pd across 1 m - these results all are associated with >1% Cu in those samples. Drillhole 10SP03 targeted a magnetic anomaly and had no indications of surface mineralization. One of the new 2022 showings has been found proximal to drillhole 10SP03 and the targeted magnetic anomaly. The Company has collected more than 250 soil samples from the Sappho area during 2022 and will report the results as they become available.

The Company is continuing with surface exploration in the Greenwood area. Crews from APEX Geoscience Ltd. commenced soil and rock sampling in June and the exploration work is ongoing. Work including prospecting, rock and soil sampling has been conducted at targets in the Ket 28 area, Rock Creek area, the Midway area, the Copper Mountain area, the Overlander-Attwood area and the Sappho area to date (Figure 3). Additional groundwork including further prospecting, sampling and ground geophysical surveys is ongoing for the Copper Mountain area and Sappho areas. Ground geophysical surveys have commenced and will comprise magnetics and Loupe electromagnetics (EM) and is ongoing and planned for the Sappho, the Midway, Motherlode and Copper Mountain areas (Figure 3).

2022 Exploration Highlights To Date

  • Grizzly has collected a total of approximately 1,578 soil samples in the Rock Creek area in the vicinity of the Nick nickel-cobalt prospect, in the area of the Ket 28 gold prospect and in the Sappho area targeting Cu-Ag-Au-Pt-Pd mineralization east of the town of Midway.
  • Grizzly has collected approximately 500 rock samples at targets in the Ket 28 area, Rock Creek area (Imperial and Crown Point), the Midway area, the Copper Mountain area, the Overlander-Attwood area and the Sappho area to date. All soil and rock samples have been sent to ALS Global in Vancouver for precious metal and multi-element analysis. Results will be provided as they become available.
  • Grizzly has completed a total of 15 core holes for a total of 3,115 m at the Dayton Target and the Motherlode North area targeting Au-Ag-Cu mineralization. Results will be provided as they become available.
  • The Dayton area is being targeted for Cu-Au porphyry and skarn potential.
  • The Motherlode North area is being targeted for skarn and precious metal epithermal sulphide mineralization.
  • The Midway area is being targeted for copper-gold skarn and epithermal gold-silver. The Overlander area is being targeted for mesothermal to epithermal gold-silver mineralization.
  • The Sappho area is being targeted for copper-gold-PGEs skarn and porphyry type targets associated with an alkalic intrusive complex and several diorite intrusions.
