The agreement allows Tocvan to acquire up to 100% interest in the Pilar project located in Sonora Mexico. The Pilar project is located within the historic Sonora gold district within the Sierra Madre Occidental geological province, host to epithermal gold-silver and porphyry copper deposits. Pilar is accessible by road and is geographically located 140km south-east of the city of Hermosillo.Under the terms of the agreement Tocvan has now advanced the first year’s cash payment of $125,000 to Colibri and issued 2,000,000 common shares of Tocvan to Colibri Resource corp. Under the terms of the agreement Tocvan must now complete $2,000,000 of exploration on the property over five years, advance Colibri an additional $275,000 over the 5-year period with $50,000 due on the 1st anniversary date of the agreement and $75,000 due on the 3rd, 4th and 5th anniversary dates.

“This is one of the more exciting properties I’ve come across in my career. The Pilar property has the right features and system to allow for great potential in defining a multimillion-ounce property.”

About the Pilar Project

The Pilar Gold Project consists of low-sulfidation epithermal mineralization in oxidized rhyolite and andesite host rock. Three zones of mineralization have been identified from surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4 Trench (Figure 1). Soil sampling along trend of the three known zones indicates a continuation of mineralization to the southeast (Figure 1).

Key Points on Pilar:

  • – 17,700m of Core & RC drilling. Highlights shown in Table 1.- 2,650m of surface and trench channel sampling. Highlights include:
    • – 55 g/t Au over 3m- 28.6 g/t Au over 6m

      – 3.39 g/t Au over 50m

    – Up to 92% recovery of oxide gold from preliminary metallurgical studies;

    – Soil sampling in undrilled areas indicating mineralization southeast of Main Zone and 4 Trench.

Table 1. Drill highlights from the oxide gold mineralization zones at Pilar. Intervals are length-weighted and uncapped. Intervals are calculated based on gold equivalent cut-off and less than 5 meters of dilution below the cut-off grade. Gold equivalent (AuEq) is calculated based on $1250/oz gold and $16/oz silver.
