Calgary, Alberta - April 14, 2022 -- InvestorsHub
NewsWire -- Tocvan Ventures Corp. (the "Company")
(CSE:TOC); (OTC:TCVNF); (FSE:TV3), is
pleased to announce drill results from its Pilar Au-Ag Project in
Sonora, Mexico. Results for drill hole JES-22-59 are provided in
this release, a core twin of RC drill hole JES-20-32 which returned
94.6-meters at 1.6 g/t Au (see Figure 1). Drill hole JES-22-59 was
previously mentioned in a news release (see NR February 15, 2022)
where a mineralized breccia host was observed in drill core
correlating to the Main Zone at Pilar. JES-22-59
returned 116.9-meters at 1.2 g/t Au and 7 g/t Ag, including an
impressive 48.1-meters at 2.8 g/t Au and 9 g/t Ag. High-grade
gold-silver mineralization was recorded adjacent to a heavily
faulted and altered zone returning 10.2-meters at 12.0 g/t Au
and 23 g/t Ag, including 4.2-meters at 28.3 g/t Au and 49 g/t
A total of 1,562 meters of Phase III drilling has been completed
in nine drill holes providing key information across the Main Zone
and 4-T Trend. Results for five drill holes are pending.
"Once again core drilling has confirmed the significant grade
and distribution of gold-silver mineralization at
Pilar", commented Brodie Sutherland, CEO. "This further
validates the strength of the shallow mineralized system at Pilar,
especially in regard to the significant high-grade mineralization
adjacent to controlling structures. We look forward to reviewing
the remaining results that test the extension of these controlling
faults to the southeast."
Discussion of Significant Results
As part of the Phase III program, nine drill holes have been
completed totalling over 1,562 meters (Figure 1). Drilling looked
to expand the Main Zone through 25, 50 and 100-meter step-outs to
the southeast in a gap zone that has seen little drilling focused
on the main trend between hole JES-20-32 (94.6m at 1.6 g/t Au) and
hole JES-21-50 (39.7m at 0.96 g/t Au). Drilling also covered the
4-T Trend testing below trench T-21-3, which returned 19.5 meters
at 0.61 g/t Au.
Confirmation of host rock and structure through the Main Zone
was completed with core drilling, targeting key areas where past RC
drilling has intersected significant gold—silver mineralization.
Drill hole JES-22-59 was successful in intersecting a significant
zone of oxide gold with broad mineralization in a silicified
brecciated andesite host (116.9 meters of 1.2 g/t Au, including
48.1 meters of 2.8 g/t Au and 9 g/t Ag). The intersection included
a high-grade fault bounded zone grading 12 g/t Au and 23 g/t Ag
over 10.2 meters. This broad interval correlates with
mineralization seen in RC hole JES-20-32, which returned 94.6
meters at 1.6 g/t Au, including 9.2 meters at 10.8 g/t Au and 38
g/t Ag. The high-grade controlling structures indicate a high
probability of continuation to the southeast, where pending drill
results are located along trend.

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 20,700 m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant

Quality Assurance / Quality Control
RC chips and core samples 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.
