Edmonton, Alberta - July 29, 2021 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSXV: GZD) (OTCQB: GZDIF) (FSE: G6H) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that field crews have completed an initial phase 1 sampling evaluation of high-priority conductivity anomalies in the search for Cobalt (Co), Copper (Cu) and Silver (Ag) mineralization that have been identified at its Robocop Property following analysis of the recent 400 line-km Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic ("VTEM™") and magnetic survey data (Figure 1 below). Results are pending and once received will be used to plan ground geophysical surveys over the high-priority anomalies. The Robocop Property is 100% owned by Grizzly and is easily road accessible in Southeast British Columbia (the "Property"), near the hamlets of Grasmere and Roosville.
Brian Testo, CEO of Grizzly, commented, "The initial results will provide high-priority drill targets to be drilled during Q3 2021. Historical results have provided high-grade copper, cobalt and silver and we anticipate more results that will enable drill targeting towards the source of multiple anomalies. The Property has significant potential for new copper-cobalt discoveries."
Crews from APEX Geoscience Ltd. conducted a follow-up Phase 1 ground geochemical survey to test a number of high and secondary priority geophysical anomalies identified in the vicinity of the "Discovery Area" (See Figure 2 below) and across the property. The Discovery Area has provided historical anomalous trench and core intersections of up to 0.134% Co, 1.19% Cu and 33.8 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag over 1.23 m. Over the course of the three-week program a total of 588 soil samples and 16 rock samples were collected from across the property (see Figure 2 below). The samples have been submitted for multielement geochemical analysis.
A number of high priority targets have been identified with some in close proximity to known Co-Cu-Ag geochemical anomalies identified in historical rocks grab samples, soils and drilling. Figure 2 above shows the locations of the 2021 soil and rock samples collected to date. The samples have been submitted to ALS Chemex in Vancouver for multielement geochemical analysis and results will be released in the coming weeks as they are received. During the course of the field work a couple of new showings of copper mineralization were found in float and outcrop. An example of copper bearing float hosted in sedimentary rocks about 300 m west of the main showings and in the vicinity of high priority VTEM anomalies 15-3 and 16-3 is provided in Figure 3 below.
A Notice of Work land use permit application for drilling a number of the VTEM anomalies has been submitted to the Front Counter BC's Cranbrook Office with anticipated drill testing in the fall, 2021.
The property is hosted within a similar geological setting to the Idaho Cobalt-Copper belt where conductivity (EM) and magnetic surveying techniques have been used previously to successfully guide drilling of prospective targets and assist in making new metal discoveries.
HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE ROBOCOP PROPERTY
The Property has yielded significant historical cobalt, copper and silver results and presents an opportunity to discover battery and electrification metals as the world shifts to electric vehicles, sustainable practices and greener alternatives. The macroeconomic outlook for battery metals such as Co and Cu remains strong with the ongoing shift to electric vehicles. It is estimated that the battery sector accounts for approximately 57% of current Co demand; this is expected to grow over the next five years to 72%, and will require an additional 100,000 tonnes/annum of Cobalt to meet demand.1
