Grizzly Partner Announces Positive Gold Results for Soil Geochemical Sampling Program Conducted at Ket 28 Area, Rock Creek, British Columbia in 2022

2023-03-02 / @newsfile


Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - March 2, 2023) - Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSXV: GZD) (FSE: G6H) (OTCQB: GZDIF) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's optionee partner Hi-View Resources Inc. has received final results for its 2022 soil and rock sampling program at the road accessible Ket 28 prospect in the Greenwood Gold District of south-central British Columbia (BC). A number of soil samples have yielded gold in soil anomalies in the vicinity of and to the south of Ket 28 towards the USA border (Figure 1). Ket 28 precious metal mineralization is hosted in Late Paleozoic Anarchist volcanic and sedimentary rocks with mineralization consisting of pyrite with minor galena and sphalerite in quartz veins, stockworks and pods associated with north, northeast and northwest trending faults related to the Rock Creek Graben.

  • First significant systematic regional sampling program with more than 1,000 soil samples collected in a 100 m by 200 m grid pattern and analysed for gold and multi-elements using a partial extraction ionic leach method at ALS Global in Vancouver, BC.
  • New anomalous gold zones in soils identified immediately southwest of the main Ket 28 showing (Figure 1) along with at least four new areas of anomalous gold in soils identified in an area that is about 2.5 km south of the main showing area and is over 5 km in length and roughly 1.2 km wide up against the US border (Figures 1 to 3).
  • A total of 129 rock grab samples collected across the Ket 28 area with up to 1.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) from a sample within the southern anomalous gold in soil area.
  • The Ket 28 showing has yielded 11.9 g/t Au over 2.0 m core length and 2.77 g/t over 11.0 m core length in different holes in drilling completed by the Company.
  • Numerous northwest and northeast controlling structures within Paleozoic Anarchist volcanic (green), clastic and calcareous sedimentary rocks (orange and blue) along with a number of small to large sized Cretaceous to Eocene (pink) intermediate to felsic intrusions are visible in outcrop and in the geophysics, and present excellent targets for follow up exploration including additional soil and rock sampling, ground geophysics, leading to eventual drilling.
  • Follow-up exploration is being designed and planned for 2023.

Brian Testo, President and CEO of Grizzly Discoveries, comments, "It's great to see some highly prospective regional targets, developing in and around the Ket 28 area where very little exploration work has been completed outside of the prospective main showing. We are also very excited about the upcoming exploration and drilling season for the high-grade precious and battery metal targets in the prolific Greenwood mining district."

Quality Assurance and Control

Results from samples were analyzed at ALS Global Laboratories (Geochemistry Division) in Vancouver, Canada (an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited facility). The sampling program was undertaken by Company personnel under the direction of Ed Parker, P.Geo. A secure chain of custody is maintained in transporting and storing of all samples. Gold was assayed using fire assay with atomic emission spectrometry (Au-ICP21/22) and gravimetric finish when required (+10 g/t Au) for rock samples and by partial cyanide leach with a wet chemical mass spectrometer finish (ME-MS23TM) for soil sample. Rock chip samples from outcrop/bedrock are selective by nature and may not be representative of the mineralization hosted on the project.

The technical content of this news release and the Company's technical disclosure has been reviewed and approved by Michael B. Dufresne, M. Sc., P. Geol., P.Geo., who is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
