TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.

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