Colibri Receives Positive Structural Study Interpretations from Its Partner at the Pilar Gold Project
August 25, 2020
NEWS RELEASE – Dieppe, NB. August 25th, 2020. (CBI-TSXV) Colibri Resource Corporation (“Colibri” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received results of a structural analysis being carried out at the Pilar Gold Project in Sonora Mexico by its option partner Tocvan Ventures ("Tocvan").
In May 2020, Tocvan released results of a high density 3DIP & magnetics survey and subsequently retained two consulting firms to collaborate with their senior geologists for a joint evaluation and interpretation of the data; SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. for structural analysis, and MPH Consulting Limited for geophysical analysis.
Results reported by Tocvan include:
the interpretation of a structural corridor trending NW-SE with approximate surface dimensions of 250m x 1000m and with modelled vertical extents greater than 300 metres (see: Illustration below)
multiple shorter-range structures with a N-S trend occurring within the larger structural corridor
Tocvan's current study proposes that they have identified significant structures on the project which are possibly the source or "plumbing" of the near surface low sulphidation epithermal gold system at Pilar. The interpretation by Tocvan extends deeper than any historical holes drilled on the property. The new data and interpretation points to a significant opportunity to extend mineralization down dip and, potentially, with greater structural and grade continuity. Tocvan interprets historical hole S-10, drilled by a Santa Catalina Mining at Pilar in 1996, which resulted in a reported intercept of 53.4 g/t Au and 53.47 g/t Ag over 16 meters as an indication of the potential of the target. The current interpretation is consistent with a structural overview study commissioned by Colibri in 2012 which described the NW-SE structural corridor and related structures as being Laramide and early Basin and Range aged events and as the primary control on Au mineralization on the property.
"We are happy with the progress at Pilar. Almost all historic drilling at Pilar has been at shallow depths extending to approximately 125m in the "Main" and the "North Hill" zones. This new data highlights that there are several untested areas at Pilar and that there is excellent potential to extend mineralized to a greater depth and along strike. Colibri shareholders truly stand to benefit greatly going forward should follow up drilling programs confirm this theory," stated Ron Goguen, President and CEO of Colibri.
