Great Bear Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: GBR) (OTCQX: GTBAF) reported results from its ongoing $25 million fully funded 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, “Results from over 50 drill holes are expected to be received between now and the end of February 2021, marking our most active period of incoming results in the Dixie Project’s history. Today’s results consist of near-surface drill holes targeting the same high-grade domain on tight 25 metre centres along 200 metres of the LP Fault zone, demonstrating exceptional continuity of high-grade gold mineralization extending to bedrock surface.”
This news release provides results from 7 additional LP Fault drill holes over 200 metres of strike length on 7 drill sections. Great Bear has now published results from 227 LP Fault drill holes and anticipates up to 400 LP Fault drill holes will be completed by the end of 2021. Figure 1 and Table 1.
Shallow High-Grade Results
New shallow high-grade drill results between bedrock surface and approximately 70 vertical metres depth include:
Additional results from this release include 10.31 g/t gold over 3.15 metres, from 163.90 to 167.05 in drill hole BR-217 on drill section 20100 (located 25 metres northwest of drill section 20075). This occurred within a total mineralized interval of 1.13 g/t gold over 67.90 metres from 133.50 to 201.40 metres.
An updated map showing the traces of drill holes provided in this release is provided in Figure 1.
Table 1: Assay results from this news release. Most drill sections are spaced 25 metres apart.
|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.|
A complete assay table for 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. No QAQC issues were noted with the results reported herein.
