Canasil Completes 2012 Exploration Program and Outlines Seven Silver-Gold Targets at the Sandra-Escobar Project in Durango State, Mexico

Canasil Resources Inc. announces completion of the 2012 exploration program at the Sandra-Escobar silver-gold project in northern Durango State, Mexico, outlining seven significant silver-gold targets over an area of 25 square kilometres. The 2012 program included an ASTER satellite alteration survey, surface mapping and sampling including collection of 370 surface samples, and an 11.8 line-kilometre ground IP geophysical survey, complementing previous mapping and sampling, airborne ZTEM geophysical survey and 1,849 metres of diamond drilling in 11 drill holes completed up to December 2011. These programs have confirmed evidence of a large hydrothermal system centred on an intrusive source and surrounded by mineralized zones observed at surface with veins and outcrops returning high silver, gold, copper, lead and zinc mineralization, with the potential for hosting both high grade vein style and disseminated mineralization. The results are consistent with earlier interpretations based on the project’s geologic setting and similarities with some major silver and gold deposits in northern Durango State such as La Pitarrilla, San Agustin and El Cairo, as outlined prior to these programs in Canasil’s news release dated July 14, 2009.
