(CBI-TSXV) Colibri Resource Corporation (“Colibri” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its option partner Tocvan Ventures (CSE:TOC) has reported that it is scheduled to begin the Phase II drilling program at the Pilar Gold-Silver Project tomorrow, April 16.  Phase II will consist of two stages totalling a minimum of 4,000-meters of reverse circulation drilling. Stage one will focus on continued definition and expansion of the “Main Zone”, where during Phase I the company intersected 94.6-meters at 1.6 g/t Au including 9.2m at 10.8 g/t Au and 38 g/t Ag in drill hole JES-20-32. Stage two will test new targets across the property including the newly identified Triple Vein Zone and the 4-Trench Extension.

Tocvan Ventures is in year two of a five-year option agreement with Colibri to earn an initial 51% ownership of the Pilar Gold-Silver Project. For full details of the agreement see Colibri’s news release dated September 24th, 2019.

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 19,200 m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below:

  • 2020 Phase I RC Drilling Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
    • 94.6m @ 1.6 g/t Au, including 1.5 m @ 9.2m @ 10.8 g/t Au and 38 g/t Ag;
    • 41.2m @ 1.1 g/t Au, including 3.1m @ 6.0g/t Au and 12 g/t Ag ;
    • 24.4m @ 2.5 g/t Au and 73 g/t Ag, including 1.5m @ 33.4 g/t Au and 1,090 g/t Ag
  • 17,700m of Historic Core & RC drilling. Highlights include:
    • 61.0m @ 0.8 g/t Au
    • 16.5m @ 53.5g/t Au and 53 g/t Ag
    • 13.0m @ 9.6 g/t Au
    • 9.0m @ 10.2 g/t Au and 46 g/t Ag

Soil and Rock sampling results from undrilled areas indicate mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone and 4-Trench Zone. Recent Surface exploration has defined three new target areas: Triple Vein Zone, SE Vein Zone and 4 Trench Extension.
