Champion Bear commences drilling at its Eagle Rock Cu-Ni-PGE Property in the Dryden area

    (TSX Venture: CBA)

    CALGARY, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - Champion Bear Resources Ltd. ("Champion Bear")
announced today that it has commenced a 1,000 metre (4 hole) drill program at
its Eagle Rock Cu-Ni-PGE Property located 80 kilometres south of Dryden. The
drilling will test the extension to greater depth of the mineralized Campbell
Zone and confirm the continuity along strike to better define the extent and
quality of the mineralization. The previously completed drilling had traced
the mineralized zone along strike for approximately 1,100 metres and to an
average vertical depth of 100 metres. Two of the proposed holes will test the
central part of the zone to a vertical depth of approximately 200 to 250
    The drilling follows the completion of detailed 8 kilometre geophysical,
IP and magnetic surveys and a surface geological mapping program at the
property, which was concentrated on a 900 metre segment of the Campbell Zone.
The geological mapping traced the mineralized zone continuously on surface for
over 700 metres. The geophysical surveys confirmed that the mineralized zone
can be identified as a discrete zone on both the magnetic and IP survey data.
The geological mapping and surveying work followed the re-logging and magnetic
susceptibility surveying of core from the property completed this summer (see
Champion Bear's news release dated August 1, 2007), the best results from
which are contained in table below.
