TOCVAN NEWS RELEASE:

Calgary, Alberta - May 27, 2021. TOCVAN Ventures Corp. (CSE: TOC) ("Tocvan" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce results for the first three holes from its Phase II drill program (the "Program") at the Pilar Gold-Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. A Phase II drill program is currently in progress with 2,900 meters of reverse circulation (RC) drilling in seventeen (17) drill holes completed to date. Results for the first three drill holes are included in this release. Fourteen (14) drill holes are pending assay results.

Drill Result Highlights

JES-21-38 (Figure 1)

  • 29.0 meters at 0.71 g/t Au from surface to 29.0 meters
    • Including 3.1 meters at 2.6 g/t Au from surface to 3.1 meters
    • Also, Including 6.1 meters at 1.9 g/t Au from 22.9 to 29.0 meters
  • And, 24.4 meters at 0.56 g/t Au from 67.1 to 91.5 meters
    • Including 9.2 meters at 1.3 g/t Au and 14 g/t Ag from 79.3 to 88.5 meters

JES-21-37

  • 6.1 meters at 0.48 g/t Au and 4 g/t Ag (0.52 g/t AuEq) from 59.5 to 65.6 meters
  • And, 4.6 meters at 0.50 g/t Au and 11 g/t Ag (0.62 g/t AuEq) from 71.7 to 76.3 meters
    • Including 1.5 meters at 1.13 g/t Au and 24 g/t Ag (1.4 g/t AuEq) from 71.7 to 73.2 meters

"We are extremely pleased with these early stage results", commented VP Exploration, Brodie Sutherland. "As we advance north of the Main Zone we are finding significant mineralization. We are especially excited to see the continuation of mineralization 30m on strike with our previous drill hole JES-20-36, which intersected 24.2m at 2.5 g/t Au and 73 g/t Ag. Pending assay results for the remaining drill holes will largely focus on our new target areas as we continue to unlock the potential of Pilar."

Results Discussion

JES-21-37 - The hole was planned to test a CSAMT resistivity anomaly that correlated with surface quartz veins. A 6.1m zone was intersected with 0.52 g/t AuEq (see Table 1). Followed by a second zone of 4.6m at 0.62 g/t AuEq. Consistent with surface observations and other drill holes in the area, copper values were elevated in this hole with one interval returning 1.5m at 1.1 g/t Au, 24 g/t Ag and 1.2% Cu.

JES-21-38 - The hole was planned to test the continuation of mineralization intersected in drill hole JES-20-36 and to test 25m up dip and further east of historic drill hole R-8, which intersected 40.4m at 1.4 g/t Au, including 3m at 10.9 g/t Auand 117 g/t Ag. Two zones of significant mineralization were intersected, 29m at 0.71 g/t Au and 24.4m at 0.56 g/t Au. Higher silver values were intersected in the deeper interval with a 3m zone grading 1.5 g/t Au and 34 g/t Ag.

JES21-39 - The hole was planned to test quartz veining and alteration recorded at surface to the west of the Main Zone which directly correlated with an IP anomaly. The hole was also planned to confirm the location of the regional fault bounded biotite granodiorite that lies to the west of the Main Zone. Anomalous gold values (0.18 to 0.47 g/t Au) were intersected in the andesite and granodiorite host rocks.

About the Pilar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property 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 19,200 m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below:

  • 2020 Phase I RC Drilling Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
    • 94.6m @ 1.6 g/t Au, including 9.2m @ 10.8 g/t Au and 38 g/t Ag;
    • 41.2m @ 1.1 g/t Au, including 3.1m @ 6.0g/t Au and 12 g/t Ag ;
    • 24.4m @ 2.5 g/t Au and 73 g/t Ag, including 1.5m @ 33.4 g/t Au and 1,090 g/t Ag
  • 17,700m of Historic Core & RC drilling. Highlights include:
    • 61.0m @ 0.8 g/t Au
    • 16.5m @ 53.5g/t Au and 53 g/t Ag
    • 13.0m @ 9.6 g/t Au
    • 9.0m @ 10.2 g/t Au and 46 g/t Ag

Soil and Rock sampling results from undrilled areas indicate mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone and 4-Trench Zone. Recent Surface exploration has defined three new target areas: Triple Vein Zone, SE Vein Zone and 4 Trench Extension.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

RC chips were shipped for sample preparation to ALS Limited in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico and for analysis at the ALS laboratory in North Vancouver. The ALS Hermosillo and North Vancouver facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified. Gold was analyzed using 50-gram nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption spectroscopy finish. Over limits for gold (>10 g/t), were analyzed using fire assay with a gravimetric finish. Silver and other elements were analyzed using a four-acid digestion with an ICP finish. Over limit analyses for silver (>100 g/t) were re-assayed using an ore-grade four-acid digestion with ICP-AES finish. Control samples comprising certified reference samples and blank samples were systematically inserted into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the Company's robust quality assurance / quality control protocol.

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Goldyoutu.be

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
