EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (MARKETWIRE) -- 09/05/12 -- Grizzly Discoveries Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GZD) (OTCQX:GZDIF) (FRANKFURT:G6H) ("Grizzly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the final results for the Company's spring drilling program on its 100% owned Greenwood Gold Project, a 225,000 acre contiguous block of mineral claims centered on Greenwood, British Columbia. The Company completed a 5 hole spring core drilling program totaling 1,364 m at the Overlander and P5 Target areas, both in the Mount Attwood area.
Overlander and P5 Targets
The 2011 fieldwork has identified coincident Induced Polarization (IP) chargeability or Horizontal Loop Electromagnetic (HLEM) conductivity anomalies with spatially associated anomalous gold (Au) in selected rock grab samples and soil samples at the Overlander and P5 target areas, both of which are within 2.5 km distance from AMT Industries Canada Inc.'s Golden Crown gold deposit. At the Overlander target area, exploration during 2011 yielded 55 soil samples with greater than 50 parts per billion (ppb) Au up to 546 ppb Au. Rock sampling during 2011 also yielded a total of 9 selected rock grab samples from the Overlander area with greater than 1 gram per tonne (g/t) Au up to 37.9 g/t Au. Two drill holes were completed during May, 2012 in order to test two separate gold in soil anomalies coincident with electromagnetic anomalies (Table 1). A complex package of basalts, feldspar porphyrys, limestone, mudstone along with weak skarn mineralization was intersected in both holes at the Overlander target. Only low grade gold was intersected in both drill holes with up 0.1 g/t Au over 12.0 m in hole 12OL01. The Company intends to drill test a number of additional high priority targets in the Overlander area as funding becomes available.

At the P5 target area, selected rock grab sampling yielded up to 7.3 g/t Au. Soil sampling yielded a total of 13 soil samples with greater than 50 ppb Au up to a maximum of 789 ppb Au. A discreet HLEM conductivity and IP chargeability anomaly associated with the gold in rock and soil sample anomalies was the focus of the 2012 spring drilling program. Two holes tested the anomaly and yielded the intersection of basalt, feldspar porphyry and long intersections of serpentinized ultramafic. Gold was found associated with pyrite bearing quartz veins in the basalt and ultramafic with a highest assay of 3.54 g/t over 1.5 m in hole 12GCE01 (Table 1). The ultramafic in hole 12GCE01 also yielded a long intersection of highly anomalous nickel with 0.18% Ni over 99.13 m (Table 1). The Company intends to conduct further drilling in the vicinity of the P5 target subject to financing.
Alberta Potash Project
Grizzly is pleased to announce that it has received a Technical Report "The Report" for its Alberta Potash Project from APEX Geoscience Ltd., of Edmonton, Alberta. The Report recommends further drilling of 4 or 5 potash test wells with a budget of up to $5 million for future work at the Company's Alberta Potash Project. Grizzly is currently reviewing options to obtain financing to the complete the recommended potash drilling program. The report is available on SEDAR.
All 2012 field and office exploration programs are conducted under the supervision of Mr. Michael Dufresne, M.Sc., P.Geol., a principal of APEX Geoscience Ltd. and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
