Great Bear Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: GBR) (OTCQX: GTBAF) reported results from its ongoing fully funded $45 million 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, “Predictability is a trait that builds first-class mineral deposits, distinguishing the ‘best of the best’. With every week that goes by, we successfully expand and fill in the LP Fault zone precisely because of its impressive, predictable continuity. In four months so far in 2021, we’ve already extended the area of drill-defined continuous gold mineralization at the LP Fault by approximately 25%. At the scale of the LP Fault, this is an impressive achievement with few current exploration stage parallels.”
With the 13 drill holes included in this release, Great Bear has released 283 LP Fault drill holes and anticipates at least 117 additional LP Fault drill holes will be completed by the end of 2021, for a total of at least 400 drill holes.
Highlights of Current Results
Results continue to demonstrate excellent continuity of high-grade and bulk-tonnage gold mineralization. The LP Fault zone remains open to extension in all directions.
Table 1: Current drill results from the LP Fault. Results are arranged by drill section from southeast (top) to northwest (bottom).
|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.|
Great Bear’s progress can be followed using the Company’s plan maps, long sections and cross sections, and through the VRIFY model posted at the Company’s web site at www.greatbearresources.ca. All LP Fault drill hole highlighted assays, plus drill collar locations and orientations can also be downloaded at the Company’s web site.

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.
