Calgary, Alberta - TheNewswire March 04, 2021 . TOCVAN Ventures Corp. ( CSE:TOC) (CNSX:TOC.CN) (" Tocvan " or the " Corporation ") is pleased to provide an update on exploration at its flagship Pilar Gold-Silver Project. Work completed to date includes detailed mapping and sampling of key targets across the Project Area (Figure 1). The aim of the program is to advance key targets to drill ready status for a Phase II drill program. 150 rock chip samples have been collected to date, covering 60% of the property. Work will continue for the next two weeks followed by final planning for the next phase of drilling.

"We are very pleased with how rapidly our geologists are able to cover the area at Pilar," commented VP Exploration, Brodie Sutherland. "Historic drilling and mapping focused on the Main Zone, our geologists are now mapping and sampling beyond the Main Zone to help define our next drill targets. Among other targets, the 4 Trench Trend shows great potential with historic adits and shafts extending for over 350 meters, this is further backed by a trend of anomalous soils and rock samples that include 24 g/t Au and 172 g/t Ag. The overall trend continues to the southeast for 1,200 meters and to date has only been evaluated with reconnaissance soil and rock sampling.  The potential to expand the area of known mineralization along strike and at depth at Pilar is excellent and we are excited to continue to advance the Project."

About the Pilar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite and rhyolite 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 from previous operators:

  • - 17,700m of Historic Core & RC drilling. Highlights include ( all lengths are drilled thicknesses ):

    • - 0.8 g/t Au over 61 m

      - 53.5g/t Au & 53 g/t Ag over 16.5 m

      - 9.6 g/t Au over 13 m

      - 10.2 g/t Au & 46 g/t Ag over 9 m

    - 2,650m of surface and trench channel sampling. Highlights include:

    • - 55 g/t Au over 3 m

      - 28.6 g/t Au over 6 m

      - 3.4 g/t Au over 50 m

    - Soil and Rock sampling results from undrilled areas indicate mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone, North Hill Zone, and 4-Trench Zone.

Even so, gold is still under pressure, and some experts think now is the time to buy. The Investing News Network spoke with Mark Yaxley, managing director of bullion dealer SWP, twice in November, and he shared his advice on buying bullion both times.

"My advice … to my clients, who are mostly Canadians and Americans, is maybe you should be mirroring eastern investors and taking advantage of these dips at this price level," he said in his first interview, explaining that westerners often wait for positive price performance to buy gold. In the second discussion, he shared his three guidelines when buying bullion.
