Tocvan Retains Majority Ownership of Pilar Project – Elects to JV on the Original Pilar Concessions

Calgary, AlbertaMarch 21, 2024 – Tocvan Ventures Corp. (the “Company”) (CSE: TOC; OTCQB: TCVNF; FSE: TV3), has elected to enter into a joint venture arrangement with Colibri Resources (“Colibri”) for the 51% owned Original Pilar Concessions. The two-concession owned jointly by Tocvan and Colibri account for just 4.6% of the total land area controlled by Tocvan where it has an ongoing 100% interest in the surrounding expansion area (over 2,100 hectares).

Why the JV Arrangement is Beneficial to Tocvan Shareholders:

  1. Tocvan has Controlling Ownership (51%) in the Original Pilar Area.
  2. Tocvan has 100% Interest in a huge land package surrounding Pilar. In 2023, Tocvan was able to successfully expand the Pilar area by acquiring a land package 20 times the size of the Original Pilar Concessions. This expansion allows Tocvan optionality with discoveries to date pointing to greater Pilar-like systems. The two concessions held jointly with Colibri account for a total of 105 hectares, just 4.6% of the total area Tocvan has controlling interest in (2,277.7 hectares). The Company believes 105 hectares is insufficient space to build a significant mine, therefore payment of $2 million CAD for the remaining interest of the small portion of the property is not in the best interest of shareholders.
  3. Control on Share Dilution. Future capital can be raised for project development. Expenditures on the Original Pilar Concessions will be shared with Colibri through the joint venture, greatly reducing the need for excessive capital. Details of the joint venture agreement will be disclosed once finalized.

Go Forward Plan for Pilar

This year, the Company has planned a minimum of 7,000 to 10,000 meters of drilling on the Original Pilar Concessions and will look to continue that initiative. Across the broader Pilar Property exploration work will be ongoing identifying source areas for the expansive placer gold workings and the large hydrothermal alteration cells that coincide with gold and silver mineralization.  Preparation work for mine development permitting is ongoing. Updates on the LiDAR Survey, Exploration and Drilling initiatives will be provided shortly.
