Great Bear’s Red Lake Properties


Great Bear Claims Map (Sept 18, 2018)

Great Bear Resources has 100% royalty-free interest in the Dixie Project which consists of 9,140 hecatares of contiguous claims that extend over 22 kilometres.  In the last two years, there have been multiple high-grade gold discoveries - the Dixie Limb, Hinge, Bear-Rimini, Yuma, Auro, Yauro, Viggo and Gap zones.  The last six discovery areas are now considered one zone that is hosted by the LP Fault deformation zone, which overall is an 18km target that is continuously being explored by the company.

The Dixie project is a gold exploration and discovery project located only 25 kilometers southwest of Red Lake, Ontario.   The reknown Red Lake gold district has produced approximately 30,000,000 oz gold from 29 gold mines historically.  Dixie itself is a large high-grade gold system from surface, that is accessible year-round by highway and has access to major infrastructure.  It is located only 15 minutes from the town of Red Lake and the entire project runs parallel to a highway and power lines, with natural gas lines and power running right through the project as well.

The Dixie property hosts two principle styles of gold mineralization:

  • High-grade gold in quartz veins and silica-sulphide replacement zones (Dixie Limb and Hinge). Hosted by mafic volcanic rocks, and localized near regional-scale D2 fold axes.  These mineralization styles are also typical of the significant mined deposits of the Red Lake district.
  • High-grade disseminated gold with broad moderate to lower grade envelopes (LP Fault).  Interpreted to traverse the Dixie property for approximately 18 kilometres of strike length and currently drilled along 4 kilometres of strike length.  High-grade gold mineralization is controlled by structural and geological contacts, and moderate to lower-grade disseminated gold surrounds and flanks the high-grade intervals.  The dominant gold-hosting stratigraphy consists of felsic sediments and volcanic units.

The Company has completed 83 of approximately 300 planned drill holes into the LP Fault target, as part of its 5 kilometre long by 500 metre deep grid drill program.  Gold mineralization has been intersected in all (100%) of the drill holes for which assays have been returned to-date.  Current drill results are provided by area, as shown on Figure 1, and in Table 1

 

Latest Drill Results Highlights:

  • New lateral and vertical drill spacing on 25 – 100 metre centres has confirmed apparent continuity of gold mineralization on multiple drill sections.
  • Drill hole BR-101 intersected multiple shallow mineralized intervals along 110 metres of core length.  Assays include 42.70 g/t gold over 3.00 m, including 118.00 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, within a broader interval of 4.24 g/t gold over 52.15 metres.
  • Drill hole BR-102 intersected the on-strike continuation of the same shallow mineralization and is collared 143 metres to the southeast of BR-101.  Assays include 23.17 g/t gold over 3.50 metres, within a broader interval of 3.10 g/t gold over 48.00 metres.
  • Previously reported drill hole BR-020 (September 3, 2019), which assayed 10.65 g/t gold over 17.25 metres, within a broader interval of 5.28 g/t gold over 42.0 metres, is the continuation of the same shallow mineralization and is collared 84 metres south of BR-101. 
  • The high-grade gold mineralization intersected in BR-020, BR-101 and BR-102 is apparently continuous and projects to within metres of the surface, below shallow gravel cover.  Mineralization remains open to extension in all directions. Figure 2.
  • A series of nine drill holes were completed within a previously undrilled gap in the LP Fault system (formerly, the Gap zone).  Highlights include drill hole BR-120 which intersected 9.35 g/t gold over 6.50 metres, which included 97.50 g/t gold over 0.50 metres, within a broader interval of 1.66 g/t gold over 46.10 metres.
  • Drill hole BR-121, completed on the same section as BR-120, intersected 4.91 g/t gold over 6.40 metres, which included 18.10 g/t gold over 1.00 metre, within a broader interval of 1.07 g/t gold over 73.85 metres.
  • BR-120 and 121 transect the same gold zone 130 and 240 vertical metres below previously disclosed drill hole BR-075 (December 16, 2019), which assayed 16.80 g/t gold over 4.15 metres, within a broader interval of 1.25 g/t gold over 45.50 metres.  Figure 3.
  • Results show apparent continuity of gold mineralization over approximately 400 vertical metres from surface in this area, which remains open to extension in all directions.

*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.  Average widths are calculated using a 0.10 g/t gold cut-off grade with < 3 m of internal dilution of zero grade.

Updated drill collar locations, azimuths and dips, together with an updated complete assay table for the LP Fault drilling to-date will be posted to the Company’s web site at https://greatbearresources.ca/projects/dixie-project-data/.

 

The company is fully funded to complete a very active drill program of 200,000 metres, without the need for funding through to the year 2021.
