Tocvan Ventures Corp. Announces Favorable Gold and Silver Values in Bulk Sample Progress Report

13.06.2023 | 9:00 Uhr | Accesswire
Updates on Latest Results as Heap Leach Continues


  • Leaching Process Ongoing, Preliminary Results Confirm Process Actively Recovering Gold and Silver
    • Gold and Silver Reported in Initial Testing of Carbon Filters
    • Solution Samples Assayed at Two Separate Certified Labs Confirm Grade
  • Fine Fraction Samples (to be used for Gravity Recovery and Agitated Leach Tests)
    • New samples range between 1.2 and 4.9 g/t Au, weighted mean of 2.1 g/t Au
    • Silver values range between 5 and 29 g/t Ag, weighted mean of 14.8 g/t Ag
    • Leach Study Returned 95-99% Recovery of Gold; 73-97% Recovery of Ag
    • Metallic Screen Results Show 12.4 to 14.1% of the Gold is Coarse (+140 mesh)

CALGARY, June 13, 2023 - Tocvan Ventures Corp. (the "Company") (CSE:TOC); (OTCQB:TCVNF); (FSE:TV3), is pleased to provide an update and sampling results from a Bulk Sample being completed at its Pilar gold-silver project in Sonora, Mexico. The Company's field management and technicians remain active with the heap leach process ongoing for the Bulk Sample. Over 800 tonnes of material are being processed through heap leach, an additional 350 tonnes of crushed material and 250 tonnes of raw-bulk sample are available for gravity recovery and later agitated leach testing. Initial results from the first week of leaching highlight the start of gold and silver going into solution for recovery. An onsite laboratory is being used during the program with weekly duplicate samples sent to LTM (Hermosillo) and SGS (Durango). The results confirm the performance of the onsite laboratory and indicate a successful start to the leaching process (see Charts 1 and 2). Results from initial sampling of the carbon material used to filter the leaching solution and capture gold and silver indicate the process is performing well. In addition, 148 samples new samples were collected from the fine fraction of screened material not included in the heap leach pile are showing improved grades of gold and silver, averaging 2.1 g/t Au and 14.8 g/t Ag. The fine fraction along with additional bulk sample material will be used in testing gravity recovery methods with later agitated leach, as suggested by the leaching study completed by LTM, showing potential for the high recovery of both gold and silver (see Table 2). LTM also completed a metallic screen study on the fine fraction material indicating that 12.4 to 14.1% of the Gold and 4.5 to 5.3% of the Silver are distributed within the coarser screened (+140 mesh) material, suggesting that most of the gold and silver is fine but coarse and free gold are still present. All other samples were submitted to ALS Hermosillo for fire assay and ICP analysis. Blanks and standards were submitted into the sample stream as part of the Company's robust QA/QC protocol. The assayed samples total 815.8 kg of fine fraction material.

"As the bulk sample continues, preliminary results are showing the excellent potential of Pilar." stated Brodie Sutherland, CEO. "With each step forward, we are getting a more accurate representation of what kind of grade and recovery potential exist at Pilar, giving us added confidence for the development of the project. We look forward to updating as we continue to evaluate the bulk sample and compare multiple recovery methods to optimize that potential."

Chart 1. Solution Sample Results from initial 53 hours of testing, provided by independent and ISO certified, LTM of Hermosillo, Mexico. Values are for gold (ppm or g/t) displaying a steady progression of concentration from 0.7 ppm to 3.5 ppm. The results match expectations and are expected to taper off slightly over time.

About the Pilar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property has recently returned some of the regions best drill results. Coupled with encouraging gold and silver recovery results from metallurgical test work, Pilar is primed to be a potential near-term producer. Pilar is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal system hosted in andesite rocks. Three primary 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-T. The Main Zone and 4-T trends are open to the southeast and new parallel zones have been recently discovered. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Mineralization extends along a 1.2-km trend, only half of that trend has been drill tested so far. To date, over 23,000 m of drilling has been completed.
