CALGARY, Alberta, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Champion Bear Resources Ltd. (TSXV: CBA-V) ("Champion Bear" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the Q1 2019 Eagle Rock drilling program on its 100% owned project located 60km south of Dryden in NW Ontario.

The results for the 9 NQ diamond drill holes in the Campbell Zone on the Eagle Rock Project are summarized in Table 1 below. The drilling program was designed to collect data predominantly within the top 150 meters of the surface in order to fill historical data gap near surface and complement existing data from 99 drill holes that range as deep as 426m in order to better understand the mineralization distribution.  The 9 holes completed in 2019 are located between existing drill sections of the Campbell Zone and as such do not constitute a material change on the Project.  Table 2 provides details of collar location and hole orientation. A plan view map is attached identifying the Q1 2019 drilling program (Figure 1).

Sampling consisted of sawing the core in equal halves along the main axis and shipping one of the halves to the Activation Laboratories preparation in Dryden Ontario. The samples are crushed and pulverized before being sent to Activation Laboratories analytical facility in Thunder Bay Ontario for analysis for gold, palladium and platinum by fire assay with ICP finish. All remaining elements were analyzed with an aqua regia digestion and multi-element ICP. Champion Bear uses a comprehensive QA/QC protocol, including the insertion of blanks, standards and pulp duplicates.

Richard Kantor, President of Champion Bear, said the Company was encouraged by these positive results in delineating the mineralization in the Campbell Zone and would be moving forward with further exploration plans to enhance the understanding of the metal distribution on its Eagle Rock properties.
