Calgary, Alberta – January 7, 2020. Tocvan Ventures Corp. (CSE: “TOC”) (“Tocvan” or the “Corporation”) reports high grade gold (Au) and silver (Ag) assay results at two new showings that significantly extend the known mineralization on the Pilar property. Among the assay results are values up to 9.3 g/t Au and 76.4 g/t Ag at the south-east part of the property, and up to 323 g/t Ag and 0.5 g/t Au midway along the property, the NW part of the property has seen extensive drilling (17,700+m’s) along the known NW-SE trend of mineralization.

Rock-grab-samples were collected as part of the due-diligence field survey of the Pilar property conducted this past November, Tocvan Ventures has entered into a property option agreement with Colibri Resources for the 100% acquisition of the Pilar property in the state of Sonora, Mexico. The surface rock-grab samples were collected in order to locate the source of the high grade soil sample results from previous operators. Additional rock-grab samples were collected in the extensively drilled area of the property at the North Hill Zone and Main Zone in the north-west to confirm surface mineralization above the historic drill-intercepts, refer to the tables and map below.

The assay results are very encouraging and provide new areas to potentially develop and define additional mineralization east and south-east of the main area of drilling of the North Hill Zone, Main Zone, and 4-Trench Zone.

Having significant assay results across the Pilar property from the north to the south along the NW-SE mineralized trend is very encouraging for expanding the known mineralization.

Another success was on a check of the S-10 drill intercept from the mid 1990’s which returned 53.47 g/t Au and 53.4 g/t Ag over 16.5m. The drill intercept location was estimated and then projected to surface where a dark red hematite sheared outcrop was located, uncovered and sampled, among the assay returns is 3.8 g/t Au and 57.4 g/t Ag showing mineralizing fluid flow in the structures.

35 samples were sent for assay, four of which were QA-QC samples (sample #’s 15,16,31,32). Significant results were found in 22 samples, see below for the map and table.

Figure 1. Plan view map showing the new target areas and results from surface rock-grab sampling.

Samples were assayed for Au and a suite of 33 elements. The samples included quality control checks appropriate for exploration stage programs. Rock samples are selective in nature and do not represent uniform mineralization across the property. Samples were sent to the ALS Geochemistry laboratories in Hermosillo, Sonora. Rock samples were analyzed using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) for gold on a 50g pulp split (ALS Code: Au-ICP22) and ICP (ALS Code: ME-MS61) for 33 elements. Locations of samples were collected by handheld GPS.

The target elements (gold and silver) and other significant results (copper and lead) have been presented here. Below are all 35 samples submitted for assay.

About the Pilar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is a low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in Andesite and Rhyolite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4 Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Over 17,700m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below from previous operators:

  • 17,700m of Core & RC drilling. Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
    • 0.73g/t Au over 40m
    • 0.75g/t Au over 61m
    • 17.3g/t Au over 1.5m
    • 5.27g/t Au over 3m
    • 53.47g/t Au & 53.4g/t Ag over 16m
    • 9.64g/t Au over 13m
    • 10.6g/t Au & 37.8g/t Ag over 9m
  • 2,650m of surface and trench channel sampling. Highlights include:
    • 55g/t Au over 3m
    • 28.6g/t Au over 6m
    • 3.39 g/t Au over 50m
  • Soil sampling results from undrilled areas indicating mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone, North Hill Zone, and 4-Trench Zone
