Great Bear Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: GBR) (OTCQX: GTBAF) reported results from its ongoing 2021 exploration program at its 100% owned flagship Dixie Project in the Red Lake district of Ontario.
Chris Taylor, President and CEO of Great Bear said, “In this release we provide highly detailed individual assay level data from shallow drill holes on one cross section at three different scales. With tighter drilling we have observed the same exceptional gold zone continuity at 25 metre drill spacing, both along strike and vertically, as we previously observed at 100 – 200 metre spacing. By the end of 2021 we are planning to have completed approximately 100 drill sections similar to the one contained in this release, consisting of over 400 drill holes in total. It’s worth emphasizing that all of this drilling is within the same continuous gold zone along more than 4 kilometres of strike length, which remains open to extension in all directions, and is present from bedrock surface.”
Figures 1 – 3 contain detailed information demonstrating gold zone continuity. This news release provides results from 3 new LP Fault drill holes completed on drill section 19925. Great Bear has now published results from 230 LP Fault drill holes and anticipates up to 400 LP Fault drill holes will be completed by the end of 2021. The new drill results from this release are provided in Table 1.
New Drill Highlights from Drill Section 19925

|Drill Hole||From (m)||To (m)||Width* (m)||Gold (g/t)||Section|
|* Widths are drill indicated core length, as insufficient drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths at this time. Average grades are calculated with un-capped gold assays, as insufficient drilling has been completed to determine capping levels for higher grade gold intercepts. Interval widths are calculated using a 0.10 g/t gold cut-off grade with up to 3 m of internal dilution of zero grade.|
Drill hole BR-250A was lost shortly after initiation and did not cross the entire LP Fault zone.
A table of all LP Fault drill holes released to date is posted to the Company’s web site at www.greatbearresources.ca.

About the Dixie Project
The Dixie Project is 100% owned, comprised of 9,140 hectares of contiguous claims that extend over 22 kilometres, and is located approximately 25 kilometres southeast of the town of Red Lake, Ontario. The project is accessible year-round via a 15 minute drive on a paved highway which runs the length of the northern claim boundary and a network of well-maintained logging roads.
The Dixie Project hosts two principal styles of gold mineralization:
About Great Bear
Great Bear Resources Ltd. is a well-financed gold exploration company managed by a team with a track record of success in mineral exploration. Great Bear is focused in the prolific Red Lake gold district in northwest Ontario, where the company controls over 330 km2 of highly prospective tenure across 5 projects: the flagship Dixie Project (100% owned), the Pakwash Property (earning a 100% interest), the Dedee Property (earning a 100% interest), the Sobel Property (earning a 100% interest), and the Red Lake North Property (earning a 100% interest) all of which are accessible year-round through existing roads.
QA/QC and Core Sampling Protocols
Drill core is logged and sampled in a secure core storage facility located in Red Lake Ontario. Core samples from the program are cut in half, using a diamond cutting saw, and are sent to Activation Laboratories in Ontario, an accredited mineral analysis laboratory, for analysis. All samples are analysed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AA techniques. Samples returning over 10.0 g/t gold are analysed utilizing standard Fire Assay-Gravimetric methods. Pulps from approximately 5% of the gold mineralized samples are submitted for check analysis to a second lab. Selected samples are also chosen for duplicate assay from the coarse reject of the original sample. Selected samples with visible gold are also analyzed with a standard 1 kg metallic screen fire assay. Certified gold reference standards, blanks and field duplicates are routinely inserted into the sample stream, as part of Great Bear’s quality control/quality assurance program (QAQC). No QAQC issues were noted with the results reported herein.
