Brigus 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 from the Contact Zone (“Contact Zone”).

“Targeted drilling within selected areas of the Contact Zone continues to return high grade results over much wider than expected widths,” said Howard Bird, Brigus’ Vice President of Exploration. “This is due to local dilation jogs in the Contact Zone and cross-cutting fault structures which can often result in the development of impressive plunging gold shoots.”
