OAKVILLE, Ontario, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Rock Development Corp. (OTC Pink: GROC) is pleased to provide an update on the company's gold property in Byers Brook, Cobequid Highlands of Nova Scotia, Canada. We have been carefully monitoring the activity by other companies in the surrounding areas as they established claims and begin exploration as a result of the original report of gold finds by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources. In addition, our team on the ground has been diligently preparing to spend a very active summer of exploration beginning with our planned airborne survey, which will be completed this spring. Following the airborne survey we will be executing our first phase of ground exploration leading to our drilling program. We are very excited about this venture and expect to accelerate exploration to assess the commercial viability of our mineral rights once the airborne results are reviewed. Danny Wong, President and CEO of Great Rock Development Corp: "Management has been in discussion to expand its claims in the area and has been in talks with potential joint development partners for other significant opportunities. We will update shareholders as these negotiations progress."
