Jabali Prospect (El Picacho Project) Highlights
- Over 500-meter Trend across two areas of significant high-grade gold mineralization
- 17 of 80 (21%) rock samples above 5 g/t Au, ranging from 5.7 g/t Au to 32 g/t Au, averaging 12.8 g/t Au
- 39 of 80 (49%) rock samples above 0.2 g/t Au, averaging 6.4 g/t Au
- Hosted in quartz-carbonate veining of unknown thickness exposed along artisanal workings, dipping shallowly to the west-northwest. Mapping and sampling currently being completed
- Never Drill Tested, Currently Permitted for 10 Drill Pads
Calgary, Alberta – November 10, 2022 Tocvan Ventures Corp. (the “Company”) (CSE: TOC; OTCQB: TCVNF; FSE: TV3), is pleased to announce geological mapping and sampling at El Picacho continues at the Jabali Prospect, an area with high- grade surface rock chips and grab samples from exposed quartz-carbonate veins and artisanal workings. 80 samples from historic sample database compilation show a range between 0.01 to 32.0 g/t gold, averaging 3.1 g/t gold over a 500-meter trend. Detailed geological mapping and rock chip and channel sampling is being conducted to advance the Prospect to drill-ready status.

“With this being the first drill season at El Picacho for Tocvan we are excited to update our shareholders on yet another prospective drill target, Jabali,” stated Brodie Sutherland, CEO. “Jabali is over 2-kilometers from our priority drill area, San Ramon and is characterized by a series of artisanal shafts and trenches along what appears to be a shallowly dipping quartz- carbonate vein system. Jabali is already permitted for drilling and surface work is currently underway to move the prospect to drill ready status. What is even more exciting is that these prospects only make up a fraction of our target areas which include Murcielago, Tortuga, Virgen Maria, Cornea and Puerto.”
The Company is pleased to report a successful trip to the International Precious Metals & Commodities Show November 4th and 5th in Munich, Germany. Tocvan presented to retail investors and small institutional funds on the Company’s Sonora projects and took part in a silver panel that included First Majestic, Silver One, Fortuna Silver, and Silver X.

About the El Picacho Property
The El Picacho Gold-Silver property is interpreted as an orogenic gold system within the regional Caborca Orogenic Gold Belt known for producing gold mines that include La Herradura (>10 Moz Au) and San Francisco (>3 Moz Au). The project is 140 kilometers north of Hermosillo and only 18 kilometers southwest of the producing San Francisco Mine. The Project totals 24 square kilometers. Five primary zones of mineralization have been identified across the property totalling over six kilometers of prospective trends. Surface sampling and historic workings have identified high-grade gold and silver values. The project has only seen widely spaced reconnaissance drilling with no follow-up. Tocvan believes this provide an excellent opportunity for discovery of a muti-million ounce district.

About the Pilar Property
The Pilar Gold-Silver property has recently returned some of the regions best drill results. Coupled with encouraging gold and silver recovery results from metallurgical test work, Pilar is primed to be a potential near-term producer. Pilar is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal system hosted in andesite rocks. Three primary 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-T. The Main Zone and 4-T trends are open to the southeast and new parallel zones have been recently discovered. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Mineralization extends along a 1.2-km trend, only half of that trend has been drill tested so far. To date, over 22,000 m of drilling has been completed.
