Releases Phase II Results for the First Three Drill Holes

TOCVAN Ventures Corp. ( C NSX :TOC. CN ) (" 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

  • - 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 Au and 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.

Brodie A. Sutherland, P.Geo., VP Exploration for Tocvan Ventures Corp. and a qualified person ("QP") as defined by Canadian National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this release.

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.

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.

Will Rhind: Upside Favors Gold; Strong US Dollar Checking Gains for Nowyoutu.be

Strength in the US dollar is keeping the gold price in check right now, but that won't last forever.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said the yellow metal is in a good position given market conditions and looks set to strengthen moving forward.

"(Gold has) really managed to shrug off a lot of the negatives around rising rates and a strong dollar, and I think people have got to ask themselves, 'How much more can the dollar strengthen from here? ... Realistically is there more upside for the dollar here, or for gold?' I think clearly I'm in the camp of favoring gold on that one," he said.
