Grizzly Discoveries CVE:GZD has now reinterpreted 2010 drill results from the Sappho prospect by incorporating coincident gold, silver, and platinum group elements (“PGE”) with copper intersected in our drillholes. This reinterpretation has returned results which are favourable to a copper porphyry deposit model at the Sappho prospect, with assay results yielding a wide anomalous interval of 0.28% CuEq over 93.5 m core length including a higher grade zone of 0.38 % CuEq over 63.5 m core length.
Three well documented surface copper occurrences in the northeastern portion of the complex yielded numerous high grade selective grab sample results including up to 8.28% copper (“Cu”) 298 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver (“Ag”), 2.2 g/t gold (“Au”), 27.1 g/t Platinum (“Pt”) and 2.57 g/t palladium (“Pd”). All three occurrences yielded multi gram Pt and Pd values. The Sappho prospect is unusual relative to most British Columbia platinum group elements-bearing alkaline intrusive complexes, in that it contains Pt concentrations greater than Pd and Au. As reported in the Technical Report, government geologists have conducted extensive geochemical and mineralogical work on the Sappho alkaline complex and associated Cu-Ag-PGE-Au mineralization and, based upon textural and geochemical evidence, suggest that the mineralization is late magmatic or magmatic-hydrothermal in origin and bares mineralogical traits most common in alkaline porphyry style associated metals.
