Colibri Resource Corp Option Partner Begins Drilling at Colibri's Pilar Gold & Silver Project in Sonora

December 1, 2020

NEWS RELEASE – Dieppe, NB. December 1st, 2020. (CBI-TSXV) Colibri Resource Corporation (“Colibri” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received confirmation that its option partner Tocvan Ventures (CSE: TOC) will begin a drilling program at Colibri's Pilar Gold & Silver project this week. The drill program will consist of up to 1,500 metres ("m") of reverse circulation ("RC") drilling and has been planned to confirm selected historical drilling and extend mineralization in the Main Zone along strike. Tocvan anticipates that the drilling will provide important structural information to assist in planning a subsequent drill campaign to test the interpretations of deeper mineralization based on geophysical results and structural interpretation. See Tocvan's news dated December 1st, 2020 for further details.

About the Pilar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal target hosted by andesite and rhyolite. 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, North Hill and 4 Trench Zones. The zones of mineralization and related structures form northwest-southeast trends. Approximately 17,700 m of drilling have been completed on the property to date. Significant results include:

  • 17,700m of Core & RC drilling. Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
    • 0.73g/t Au over 40m
    • 0.75g/t Au over 61m
    • 17.3g/t Au over 1.5m
    • 5.27g/t Au over 3m
    • 53.47g/t Au & 53.4g/t Ag over 16m
    • 9.64g/t Au over 13m
    • 10.6g/t Au & 37.8g/t Ag over 9m
  • 2,650m of surface and trench channel sampling. Highlights include:
    • 55g/t Au over 3m
    • 28.6g/t Au over 6m
    • 3.39 g/t Au over 50m
  • Soil sampling results from undrilled areas indicating mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone, North Hill Zone, and 4-Trench Zone
