Grizzly Discoveries $GZD $GZDIF is pleased to announce that Kinross Gold Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary, KG Exploration (Canada) Inc. (“Kinross”) has informed Grizzly that a drill will be mobilized to the Midway Target within the Greenwood Project, located near Greenwood in southern B.C. Kinross is planning a 1,200 m drill program at the Midway area during July and August, 2018, to continue the proof of concept drilling at the Midway Epithermal Target intersected in 2017. Proof-of-concept drilling in 2017 intersected gold, silicification, argillic alteration and minor quartz veining in 2 out of 3 holes along strike, warranting further follow-up exploration, particularly to the east and down-dip at the epithermal target.
Grizzly is also pleased to announce that it has closed on a private placement for gross proceeds of $55,000 (the “Placement”).
Highlights of 2017 Kinross Exploration Program at Midway
The portions of the Greenwood Project being explored by Kinross, 100% owned by Grizzly Discoveries Inc., includes 131 claims that form a contiguous package totaling approximately 27,346 hectares, representing approximately one third of Grizzly’s land holdings at Greenwood. Kinross can earn a 75% interest on the optioned land pursuant to an Option Agreement dated September 2015 by incurring US$3 million in exploration expenditures over a 5 year period. By the second anniversary on September 23, 2017, Kinross had completed 1,129 metres of diamond drilling and had incurred US$750,000 in expenditures.
Kinross geologists hypothesize that the Midway Epithermal target is an Eocene-aged epithermal system developed within Triassic clastic sediments and limestone, and Jurassic hornblende diorite intrusions, all unconformably overlain by Eocene Kettle River Formation sediments and Marron volcanics.
A 3 +/- m thick blanket of massive silica (locally banded, brecciated and vuggy) occurs at the basal Eocene unconformity. Remnants of this silica blanket occur in outcrop, intermittently over a 1 x 1 km area, in some places replacing Triassic limestone. The massive silica contains elevated gold (“Au”) (to 1.175 parts per million [ppm]) as well as locally anomalous arsenic (“As”), mercury (“Hg”) and antimony (“Sb”). Near the eastern end of the (known) silica exposure, up to 15% marcasite occurs as disseminations within the silica, and as cm-scale clasts that exhibit internal banding. This showing is interpreted as representing a hydrothermal vent intersecting the unconformity.
Widespread argillic alteration and more local silicification occur in the footwall of the unconformity. Two separate zones of alteration and veining have been discovered: The western zone is a north-trending, 200 m long by 50-75 m wide, zone of silicification, with peripheral argillic alteration, centered on a north trending fault zone marked by a narrow band of listwanite. Multiple narrow (to 0.5 m) chalcedonic quartz (+/-quartz breccia) veins (up to 4.2 ppm Au) occur within the broader zone of silicification. A second similar zone of alteration and veining is located 200 m to the east. The target areas were further delineated via a large Au-Cu-Ag +/- Hg, Sb, Se, Ba soil anomaly over the exposed epithermal system.
Rock chip and drill hole results indicate predominately argillic, and lesser propylitic alteration. Kaolinite dominates the argillic suite. The strongest zone of alteration is a north-trending, 200 m long by 50-75 m wide, zone of silicification near the irregular clastic/intrusive contact centered on a north-trending fault
zone. Multiple narrow (to 0.5 m) chalcedonic quartz (+/- quartz breccia) veins occur within the broader zone of silicification. Values of up to 4.2 ppm Au have been recovered from these veins.
Private placement and 2018 Proposed Work Programs
On July 19, 2018, the Company closed a private placement of Units and FT Units for gross proceeds of $55,000. The Company sold 562,500 units (“NFT Units”) at a price of $0.08 per unit, and 100,000 flow-through units (FT Units) at a price of $0.10 per FT Unit. Each NFT Unit consisted of one common share of Grizzly (a “Share”) and one Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each FT Unit sold consisted of one Share, issued as a flow-through share pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one half of one Warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Share for an exercise price of $0.12 and expires on the earlier of: (a) 30 days following the issuance of a news release by the Corporation that the trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is at or greater than $0.18 per Common Share for 10 consecutive trading days; and (b) July 19, 2020.
An insider of the Company purchased 137,500 Units for proceeds of $11,000 and a corporation controlled by an insider purchased 75,000 NFT Units for proceeds of $6,000. The closing of the Placement is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Grizzly has submitted three Notices of Work (“NOW”) programs to the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines & Petroleum Resources. The planned programs cover planned exploration, including planned drilling, at the Ket 28 – Dayton and Motherlode target areas in the Greenwood Project area on lands not under option to Kinross. The third NOW program will cover potential cobalt-copper-silver (Co-Cu-Ag) drill targets at the Company’s 100% owned Robocop Project to be tested this fall after completion of an airborne survey and surface exploration activities planned during August and September 2018.

Triumph Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TIG) (“Triumph” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a private placement financing of 14,641,101 units of Triumph at a price of $0.35 per unit for gross proceeds of approximately $5,124,385. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable into one additional common share at a price of $0.55 for a period of two years from the closing of the financing. The investment was made primarily by institutional investors. A private Hong Kong fund invested approximately $2.5 million and three existing shareholders (amongst others) participated in the offering, including Goldcorp Inc. (“Goldcorp”) which exercised its right to top up to a 19.9% ownership by participating in the financing.
John Anderson, Chairman of Triumph commented: “We are excited to have new institutional investors investing directly into the Company as we continue to explore the Freegold Mountain project. As well, we are overwhelmed that current shareholders requested to increase their investment at this time. Goldcorp has participated in this financing to increase its interest in the Company to 19.999% on a partially diluted basis. We view this investment as a validation of our exploration philosophy and look forward to continuing to work with Goldcorp’s technical team as we continue to advance the Freegold Mountain project.”
The proceeds of the offering will be used for exploration at the Company’s Freegold Mountain project and for general working capital. Triumph currently has two diamond drills on the property and is in the middle of an 18,000 metre drilling program.
All securities issued in connection with this financing will be subject to a statutory four month hold period expiring on November 12, 2018, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. Upon completion of the private placement, the Company will have 78,442,638 common shares issued and outstanding. The Company has agreed to pay cash finder’s fees in the aggregate amount of $31,300 to certain finders in connection with the private placement.
Goldcorp and Palisade Global Investments Ltd., each subscribed for 2,719,674 units and 2,900,000 units, respectively, under the offering. The participation of each of these insiders is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company determined that an exemption from the formal valuation requirement of MI 61-101 was available for each related party transaction pursuant to Section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101. The Company also relied on Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirement.
The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days in advance of the closing of the offering, which the Company deems reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the closing date of the private placement had not been established at that time.
