Big Bear Mining to Begin Drilling at Rattlesnake Hills in Wyoming

Big Bear Mining Corp (OTC Bulletin Board: BGBR), a U.S. based exploration and development company focused on the acquisition and development of gold and other precious commodity projects, announced today that drilling is set to commence by week's end on the Barlow Gap "BG" claims in Rattlesnake Hills, Natrona County, Wyoming.  

The drilling program objective is to discover precious or base metal mineralization at depth below broad zones of silicification delineated by Crescent Resources in 2009 and expanded in our current program which contain anomalous Ag +/- Au samples.  

Steve Rix, CEO & President, stated, "After acquiring the properties less than two months ago, an aggressive effort has been made to build on the work completed last season by Crescent Resources. This work allowed the company to identify drill targets on three of the ten claim blocks. Now with permitting in place and a drilling contract executed we are set to begin our drilling program."

The drilling program is expected to take approximately 3 weeks and results will be announced early in the first quarter of 2011.

Ruen Drilling will oversee the drilling program on the BG claims in Rattlesnake Hills. Ruen has significant experience in the area as they have conducted extensive work over 3 full seasons of drilling in neighboring properties held by Evolving Gold.
