Colibri Announces Grab And Channel Samples Taken At Diamante Gold & Silver Project – Assays As High As 1.195 G/T Gold, 837 G/T Silver, And 6.87% Zinc
April 27, 2021
NEWS RELEASE - Dieppe, NB. April 27th, 2021 - Colibri Resource Corporation (CBI-TSXV) ("Colibri" or the "Company") is very pleased announce the positive results of channel and grab samples reported yesterday by its potential partner Silver Spruce Resources (TSX.V-SSE) at the Diamante 1 and Diamante 2 concessions when completing their due diligence on the Diamante Gold & Silver Project. Silver Spruce recently signed a Letter of Intent with Colibri Resource Corp. (TSXV:CBI) (“Colibri”), and its wholly-owned Mexican subsidiary, Yaque Minerales SA de CV (“Yaque”), to acquire up to 50% interest in four concessions with a cumulative land position of 1,057 hectares.
The Diamante Gold-Silver (Au-Ag) Project (“Diamante” or the Property”) is a high potential - early stage precious metal property located 5 km northwest of the town of Tepoca, and 165 km southeast of the capital city of Hermosillo, eastern Sonora, Mexico. Diamante 1 is situated to the 180-ha El Mezquite project. Diamante 2, 700 metres south of Diamante 1, is located 1.6 kilometres northwest of the Company’s 1,130-ha Jackie project.

Silver Spruce sent a team of two geologists to the Diamante Concessions to verify the known targets and carry out preliminary rock sampling (Figure 2). The sample data and assays from rock samples collected at five of the targets (Calton, El Cumbro, El Cazo-La Olla, La Prieta and El Chon) are reported below in Tables 1.

Diamante 1 and 2 include more than ten known occurrences at La Prieta-El Aguaje, El Chon-El Pillado, La Olla, La Cruz and El Caso, Mezquite Raizudo, El Puerto, El Cumbro, Calton and the Southern Anomaly. The target location maps and sampling highlights were provided previously (see Press Release – Feb 24, 2021). Sampling highlights from areas of interest on the Diamante concessions, some with artisanal mining, have reported significant values of precious and base metals (Au, Ag, Pb, Zn) in individual samples collected from historical mine dumps, small-scale processing slag, and assays from vein (veta) and stockwork style mineralization.
The Property exhibits geological features of epithermal low to intermediate sulfidation Ag-Au (Pb-Zn), high sulphidation Au-Cu, and potential transition to porphyry style Au-Cu. Precious and base metal polymetallic mineralization occurs as disseminated, stockwork and vein styles accompanied by silicification (with quartz veining), and phyllic, argillic, advanced argillic (quartz-alunite-pyrite) and propylitic (chlorite) zones, with near-surface overprinting by oxidation, jarosite and vuggy silica.
Mineralization is reported as pyrite, chalcopyrite and galena, and probable secondary base metal oxides, carbonates and sulphates, including copper carbonate (malachite) and copper sulphates with jarosite, commonly is coincident with alteration, iron oxide and oxyhydroxide (hematite, goethite and limonite) staining, and structural lineaments identified in the historical exploration. Six known vein systems correspond to ENE, NE and NW orientations.
