Brigus Gold Intersects High Grades At 147 Zone

Brigus Gold Corp. (“Brigus” or the “Company”) (NYSE Amex: BRD; TSX: BRD) reports that results from its ongoing drilling program at the 147 Zone on its Grey Fox property in the Gold District of Timmins, Ontario, Canada, include high grade intercepts of 14 grams per tonne over 35 metres and 4.7 grams over 29 metres.

Brigus Senior Vice President Exploration Howard Bird said, “These impressive drill hole intercepts are among the best returned from the 147 Zone. These results extend the ore body to a true vertical depth of 300 metres below surface and most importantly the zone remains open for further expansion.”

Highlights from the 147 Zone drill holes reported today (all assays capped at 100 gpt gold, average gold grades over core length widths) include:
