Malibu, CA, May 2, 2019 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Great Bear Resources (the "Company" or "Great Bear") (CVE:GBR) (GTBDF:OTCMKTS) reported the discovery of a new gold control within its Dixie Limb Zone ("DL") target which is associated with thickened and higher-grade gold mineralization. The new discovery enhances the DL as a significant potential host of high-grade gold. The DL is the original gold discovery at the Dixie project, made by Teck Resources. It is located approximately 200 metres to the north of, and is sub-parallel to, Great Bear's 2018 high-grade gold discovery at the Hinge Zone ("DHZ"). Nine additional drill holes have also been completed into the Hinge Zone for which assays are pending; these results will be released when available. Continued drilling of the DHZ remains a top priority through 2019 and 2020, as part of the Company's fully-funded 60,000 metre drill program.
The Company also reports it has entered into a binding Letter of Intent ("LOI") with GoldON Resources Ltd. (CVE:GLD) ("GoldON") wherein GoldON has the option to earn an initial 60% interest, and a subsequent 100% interest in Great Bear's West Madsen property. The Dixie Limb zone is a major gold target at the Dixie project, second only to the Hinge Zone in exploration importance. This is due to its potential size, strong continuity of grade, and the presence of gold extending to within a few metres of surface. Great Bear's recent drilling successfully tested newly interpreted high-grade gold controls in the zone. Results include: New drilling has intersected a "Hinge Zone style" east-west trending high grade gold vein which intersects the DL and is associated with increased grades and widths of mineralization at the intersection.The newly discovered gold control allows Great Bear to prioritize drill targeting of high-grade zones within the broader mineralized system in the DL.
New drill results include 17.55 g/t gold over 2.55 metres within a broader interval of 9.15 g/t gold over 5.30 metres, and 24.21 g/t gold over 1.30 metres within a broader interval of 5.05 g/t gold over 15.85 metres. The DL has been drill defined along a 600-metre strike length where all (100%) of more than 100 drill holes have encountered gold mineralization at a geological contact between various basalt and metasediments units. The DL has considerable depth potential based on geological and structural modeling. The deepest drill hole intersects the zone at approximately 450 metres vertical depth, and the zone remains open to extension in all directions. The newly defined intersection provides a predictable plunge of high-grade gold mineralization which Great Bear successfully targeted during recent drilling. Great Bear has also used a similar predictive plunge technique to define high-grade gold mineralization in the Hinge Zone.
