Great Bear Resources Ltd (CVE:GBR) (OTCQX:GTBAF) is back up to full drilling pelt at its flagship Dixie project in Red Lake, with five active drill rigs set to return in July.

"At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we reduced our drill count from five to three rigs, and implemented a series of risk mitigation protocols which will remain in place, designed to protect our staff and local communities," said Chris Taylor, CEO in a statement.

The return to five rigs amounts to a  67% increase in drill activity over recent levels, he noted.

"This will accelerate our grid drill program at the LP Fault, and allow ongoing simultaneous exploration of additional targets across the property," Taylor added.

The firm is currently in the throes of a fully-funded C$21 million exploration program at Dixie and around 180 holes of a planned 300 remain to be completed this year.

"With approximately $48 million in cash, the company is well-positioned to significantly expand its exploration activities through 2022 and will provide updates on future drill plans as details become available," the group said.

Shares in Toronto ticked up 1.3% in early deals to C$18.01 each.
