ONTARIO – Great Bear Resources of Vancouver is raising $5.5 million to extend its current drill program at the Dixie property to 90,000 metres. That is a 50% increase over the originally planned 60,000 metres.

The money will be raised through the issuance of flow-through and common shares with a private placement. Cormak Securities is acting as lead underwriter.

The underwriters have agreed to purchase 1.0 million flow-through shares at a price of $5.45 per share. Gross proceeds will be approximately $5.45 million. The syndicate has been granted an overallotment option of an additional 150,000 flow-through shares.

Great Bear’s Dixie project at Red Lake is a multi-kilometre mineralized structure similar to producing gold mines in the district, says the company. It is also earning a 100% royalty-free interest in the Pakwash, Dedee and Sobel properties. The company has $15 million cash in hand with which to pursue its programs.
