Colibri's Option Partner at Pilar Gold/Silver Project Samples 4.5 g/t Au and 735 g/t Ag in Channel Sample at New Triple Vein Zone - Additional Channel Sampling at 4 Trench Extension Returns 19.9 g/t Au
Results from Surface Exploration Confirm Mapping, Define New Broad Target Areas at Pilar
Dieppe, April 6, 2021 - Colibri Resource Corp. (TSXV: CBI) ("Colibri" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that in a news release dated April 6th, 2021, its option partner Tocvan Ventures Corp. (CSE: TOC) has reported results from its surface exploration at Colibri's Pilar Gold-Silver Project. The aim of the program was to advance key targets with no previous mapping or detailed sampling to drill ready status for a Phase II drill program scheduled to begin in April. A total of 207 rock chip samples were collected covering the entire property (Figure 1). Sampling at the new Triple Vein Zone target has returned anomalous values over a 400-meter strike length, highlighted by 4.5 g/t Au with 735 g/t Ag and 4.3 g/t Au with 96 g/t Ag. Sampling along the 4 Trench Extension returned anomalous values over a 600-meter trend highlighted by 19.9 g/t Au with 8 g/t Ag and 5.1 g/t Au with 142 g/t Ag.
Tocvan 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.
Highlights from Surface Sampling:
Triple Vein Zone
- 4.5 g/t Au and 735 g/t Ag, channel sample of quartz vein in previously unmapped artisanal working
- 8.0 g/t Au and 8 g/t Ag, channel sample of oxidized brecciated andesite
- 4.3 g/t Au and 96 g/t Ag, channel sample of oxidized brecciated andesite
- 5.1 g/t Au and 24 g/t Ag, channel sample of vein in previously unmapped artisanal working
- 2.8 g/t Au and 15 g/t Ag, channel sample of silicified brecciated andesite 3-meters thick
- 19.9 g/t Au and 8 g/t Ag, channel sample, andesite dyke with quartz
- 5.1 g/t Au and 142 g/t Ag, grab float sample along vein strike
- 3.7 g/t Au and 62 g/t Ag, grab float sample along vein strike
- 3.4 g/t Au and 28 g/t Ag, channel sample of oxidized quartz vein
- 1.9 g/t Au and 178 g/t Ag, channel sample of oxidized quartz vein
*All samples are rock channel or grab samples. Grab samples are selective and may not represent mineralization over wider intervals.

About the Pilar Property
The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite and rhyolite 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 @ 6.0 g/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 @ 53.5 g/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.
