Vancouver, British Columbia TheNewswire - April 28, 2021 Volcanic Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV:VG) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has commenced at the high-grade gold silver Holly Project located in Guatemala.  Volcanic plans a minimum 3000m diamond core drilling and the current drill program will be fully funded by Volcanic pursuant to its option to earn an interest in the Holly and Banderas projects in Guatemala.

Drill Targets

The initial drill targets at Holly will focus on the intersection of the EW trending Jocotan fault zone with the NW trending La Pena and Pino vein systems (figure 1).

The Holly property is transected by the regional-scale Jocotan fault which forms part of the plate boundary between North American and Caribbean tectonic plates. At Holly, the Jocotan fault forms a well-defined east-west trending ridge up to 200m wide consisting of variable to intensely altered, silicified and mineralized breccias and fault related conglomerates. The Jocotan fault is associated with a 1.5km long trend of strong gold in soil and rock chip geochemistry that has not yet been drill tested.

Historic exploration at Holly focused on the La Pena and Pino veins that cross-cut the Jocotan fault and has some spectacular high grade gold and silver intersects in limited trenching and shallow drilling.

Simon Ridgway, Volcanic's CEO, commented: "Shallow historic drilling at Holly ridge tested the NW striking high-grade veins and returned great gold and silver mineralized intervals. The historic holes were drilled parallel to the EW Jocotan fault, which is up to 200m wide and typically intensely altered. The intersection of the high-grade veins with the Jocotan regional fault system creates a perfect target for a large-scale gold-silver discovery, which we plan to systematically test in the coming months."
