Brigus Gold Corp. reports higher grade gold assay results at Black Fox Mine.

9 hours ago by Business WireBrigus Gold Corp. ("Brigus" or the "Company") (NYSE Amex: BRD) (TSX: BRD) is pleased to announce that exploration drilling on the southern portion of the Black Fox Complex continues to return high-grade gold assays. Drilling at the Contact Zone ("Contact Zone"), 400 metres north of the recently discovered 147 Zone, has intersected 16.18 grams per tonne ("gpt") over 4.50 metres ("m") that included 83.04 gpt over 0.75m. To date, Brigus has outlined an area of mineralization approximately 400 m in strike length. The Zone remains open along strike to the north and open at depth.

Highlights from continued drilling at the Contact Zone include (all uncut, average gold grades over true widths):
Contact Zone
-- GF11-154: -- 6.09 gpt over 3.03 m; and
-- 3.32 gpt over 4.04 m; and
-- 2.19 gpt over 12.94 m
-- GF11-234: -- 6.95 gpt over 4.11 m; -- including 11.75 gpt over 1.46 m
-- GF11-236: -- 3.89 gpt over 3.51 m; and
-- 7.75 gpt over 1.76 m
-- GF11-245: -- 16.18 gpt over 4.50 m; -- including 83.04 gpt over 0.75 m
-- 1.30 gpt over 11.70 m; -- including 2.57 gpt over 3.00 m

The Black Fox Complex covers an area of approximately 18 square kilometres within the Timmins Mining District, Ontario. The Contact Zone consists of a steeply dipping gold mineralized fault contact between the north-south trending metasediments and mafic volcanic rocks, and other parallel hanging wall and footwall gold mineralized zones. The general dip of the feature is 78 degrees to the east with horizontal widths varying from 3.5 m to 35 m.

Drilling at the Black Fox Complex is progressing as planned with six drill rigs operating. Two drill rigs are infill drilling and testing along strike and down-dip on the Contact Zone, three drill rigs are expanding the 147 Zone, and one drill rig is focused on testing other known gold bearing structures, as well as new potential gold bearing targets defined from the recent induced polarization and magnetic geophysical surveys.

Details of the most recent Contact Zone drill holes are listed in Appendix 1 and a drill-hole location map is included in Appendix 2. All drill hole data is posted on the Company's website at www.brigusgold.com.
Surface drilling was conducted by Norex Drilling and was supervised by the Brigus exploration team. All sample analyses reported herein were performed by Polymet Labs of Cobalt, Ontario, which is ISO 9001:2000 certified in North America using standard fire assay procedures. Intercepts cited do not necessarily represent true widths, unless otherwise noted. Brigus Gold's quality control checks include insertion of blanks, standards and duplicates to ensure laboratory accuracy. Senior Exploration Project Manager John A. Dixon, P.
