 TOCVAN Ventures Corp. (CSE: TOC) (FSE: TV3) announced results for the first three holes from its Phase II drill program at the Pilar Gold-Silver Project in Mexico. Tocvan has an option to acquire 100% of the Pilar property, located 140 kilometers south-east of the city of Hermosillo in the historic Sonora gold district in Mexico.

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 Zone and 4-Trench Zone. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization.

A Phase II drill program is currently in progress with 2,900 meters of reverse circulation drilling in 17 drill holes completed to date. The 3 holes release today are shown in green, with assay results for 14 drill holes shown in red still pending.

JES-21-37 tested a CSAMT resistivity anomaly that correlated with surface quartz veins. A 6.1m zone was intersected with 0.52 g/t gold equivalent, followed by a second zone of 4.6m at 0.62 g/t gold equivalent. 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 gold, 24 g/t silver and 1.2% copper.

JES-21-38 tested 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 gold, including 3m at 10.9 g/t gold and 117 g/t silver. Two zones of significant mineralization were intersected, 29m at 0.71 g/t gold, starting at surface, and 24.4m at 0.56 g/t gold. Higher silver values were intersected in the deeper interval with a 3m zone grading 1.5 g/t gold and 34 g/t silver.

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

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.

Brodie Sutherland, VP Exploration, stated: "We are extremely pleased with these early stage results. 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."

The company also has an option to acquire up to an 80% interest in the Rogers Creek Property, which covers approximately 212 square kilometers in the Coastal Mountain Belt of British Columbia, about 90 kilometers northeast of Vancouver, in the Lillooet Mining District.

Tocvan has applied for an OTCQB listing in addition to applying for DTC eligibility.

Brian Leni: Precious Metals Thesis is "Overwhelming" — Be Picky, Buy Best of the Bestyoutu.be

Now trading just above US$1,800 per ounce, the gold price isn't performing as well as some investors would like. But for Brian Leni, founder of Junior Stock Review, the outlook remains bright.

"To me the value in the precious metals and the overall precious metals thesis is just so strong it's overwhelming," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Leni describes himself as a value investor, and emphasized that for him the precious metals story isn't a question of "if," it's a question of "when" — the key is picking the right companies and being ready to wait.

Turmoil continues to rock the broader markets, and while the gold price has also suffered declines, George Salamis believes it's holding up well compared to other assets.

"Gold has hung in there pretty well relative to other investments — other commodities, currencies. I think it's held its own," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Salamis, who is the president and CEO of Integra Resources (TSXV:ITR,NYSEAMERICAN:ITRG), explained that he also sees gold miners doing well, but thinks volatility is stopping them from making moves.
