Brigus Gold Drills Deepest High Grade Intersection to Date at Grey Fox

HALIFAX--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Brigus Gold Corp. ("Brigus" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT: BRD; TSX: BRD) is pleased to report additional results from its ongoing drill program at the 147 Zone on the Grey Fox property. Results from this drill program will increase the current gold resource and further confirm the potential for both a new open pit and underground mine. The Grey Fox property is located approximately four kilometres southeast of Brigus' Black Fox mine and boasts excellent infrastructure. Due to the close proximity of Grey Fox to the Black Fox mine, the Company sees potential for near term production growth.

"These impressive results further extend the 147 Zone orebody and it remains open for expansion at depths beyond 400 metres vertical," said Howard Bird, Brigus' Senior Vice President of Exploration. "Four drill rigs will continue resource expansion drilling on the 147, Contact and Grey Fox South zones for the remainder of the year."


The Company plans to release an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate for the Grey Fox property later in the quarter.

Highlights from the 147 Zone which remains open for expansion:
