Ontario-focused Great Bear Resources (CVE:GBR) was up 3% to $5.58 a share after reporting drill results today.

The company highlighted the following:

  • A new steeply plunging high-grade sub-zone was discovered to the west of, and above, most previous drilling in the Hinge Zone. Results include 30.81 g/t gold over 2.50 meters within a broader zone of 7.40 g/t gold over 13.20 meters, at only 68 meters vertical depth.
  • The new Hinge Zone sub-zone was also tested to approximately 140 meters vertical depth, where assays returned 20.41 g/t gold over 2.20 meters, within a wide interval of 2.07 g/t gold over 29.80 meters. Gold-bearing quartz veins are strongly developed adjacent to a newly defined sediment contact within the same high-iron tholeiitic pillow basalt that hosts the original Hinge Zone discovery.
  • Recent Dixie Limb drill results include 21.54 g/t gold over 2.35 meters within a broader interval of 9.68 g/t gold over 5.60 meters. Drilling continues to encounter high-grade gold intervals near the predicted intersections of Hinge-Zone style gold-bearing veins with the Dixie Limb contact.

Great Bear is exploring its Dixie Project in the Red Lake District of Ontario.
