Great Bear Resources Reports Gold Recoveries Of 97% From Preliminary Testing

Great Bear Resources (TSXV: GBR) this morning released preliminary data on gold recovery testing conducted at its flagship Dixie project in Red Lake, Ontario. The metallurgical tests were conducted on the Hinge Zone on the property, with positive results generated.

THe metallurgical testing conducted saw overall recovery rates between 95% and 97%, dependent upon the type of grinding used on the ore. Tests were conducted utilizing cyanidation bottle roll leach testing methods.

To conduct the tests, an 18.0 kilogram sample from a 10.9 metre long drill core was used for processing from the Hinge Zone. From this, two one kilogram samples averaging 13.07 g/t gold were analyzed and processed through what known as a standard 48 hour bottle roll procedure. The test used a 1.0 g/L sodium cyanide solution.

Two grind samples were used, 80% passing 112 µm and 74 µm, which saw gold recoveries of 95.4% and 97.2% respectively. The results are said to be similar to other mines in the region. Additional metallurgical testing is now underway on samples from the Hinge, Limb and LP Fault zones. Gravity circuit tests are also planned for the new year.

Periodic results from this recovery tests are to be “periodically released over the coming months.”

Great Bear Resources last traded at $15.91 on the TSX Venture.
