ONTARIO – Vancouver-based Great Bear Resources says it has made a significant high grade gold discovery in the Hinge zone at the Dixie Lake gold project 24 km southwest of Red Lake.

The new Hinge zone intercepts occur at less than 110 metres depth and are open in all directions. Drill hole DHZ-003 returned 16.35 metres of 26.91 g/t gold including separate sub-intervals of 5.05 metres of 51.39 g/t and 1.0 metre of 112.63 g/t gold. Drill hole DHZ-004, 15 metres vertically below DHZ-003, intersected higher grade gold mineralization, returning 7.00 metres of 44.47 g/t gold, including 2.00 metres of 143.24 g/t, which includes 1.00 metre of 224.03 g/t.

High grades were also drilled at the Dixie Limb zone. Drill hole DL-021 returned 9.50 metres of 3.60 g/t gold including 5.00 metres of 5.48 g/t which included 0.50 metres of 19.03 g/t. The intercept in drill hole DL-021 returned 16.80 metres of 5.60 grams gold, including 2.70 metres of 14.92 grams, first reported by Great Bear earlier this month. The current results show continuity of high grade gold mineralization at the targeted geological contact, according to the company.

Great Bear is fully funded to complete the final 5,000 metres of the 10,000-metre drill program at Dixie Lake.
