A First Nation says it plans to release details today about possible burials found at the site of a former residential school north of Regina.

Chief Byron Bitternose is to outline the first findings of a ground search on the George Gordon First Nation.

The George Gordon Indian Residential School was first established by the Anglican Church of Canada in 1888 and operated until 1996, making it one of the longest-running residential schools.

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation has a record of 49 student deaths there and the commission's final report called the school one of the worst run in the entire residential system.
