ONTARIO – Great Bear Resources of Vancouver revised the results from a high grade Hinge zone at the Dixie gold project 24 km southwest of Red Lake. Last month, the company reported that hole DHZ-004 returned 44.47 g/t gold over 7.0 metres.

Now the grade has been restated as 68.76 g/t gold over 7.0 metres. Within that interval, there was a 3.8-metre section at 125.84 g/t, a 2.0-metre section at 228.27 g/t, and a 1.0-metre section at 392.48 g/t.

Great Bear regularly asks for check assays and re-assaying of all high grade core. The original assay was 1.7 g/t over 0.5 metres of core, but that did not match its description as having visible gold.

The company has begun a 30,000-metre drill program stretching into 2019 at a cost of $5.5 million. The Dixie Limb zone will be tested, including its various sub-zones. Step-out drilling will also be done along the 10-km strike length.
