Evrim Resources Expands High Grade Vein Field at Cerro Cascaron

Vancouver B.C. – August 17, 2016: Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V: EVM) (“Evrim” or the “Company”) announces new exploration results at the Company’s 100% owned Cerro Cascaron project in Chihuahua, Mexico. The large, zoned, and high grade gold vein field at Cerro Cascaron has now been extended to 18 square kilometres and sampling within the field has identified several drill targets. Cerro Cascaron is a large, low to intermediate sulphidation epithermal gold target located in Sierra Madre Occidental in Chihuahua, approximately 55 kilometres southeast of Goldcorp Inc.’s past-producing El Sauzal gold mine.

Exploration Program Highlights

  • Channel sample grades of 19 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold and 72.6 g/t silver over 0.8 metres within 2.6 metres grading 6.05 g/t gold and 28.3 g/t silver at the San Pedro vein
  • Channel sample grades of 10.5 g/t gold and 46.4 g/t silver over 0.9 metres within 4.3 metres grading 2.22 g/t gold and 10.9 g/t silver 45 metres to the north along the San Pedro vein
  • Grab samples from 0.46 g/t silver to 982 g/t silver at a new area, known as La Cascarita, approximately five kilometres west of the currently defined vein field
  • Grab samples from the Divisadero veins grade range from 0.11 g/t silver to 599 g/t silver. Six of fifty-nine samples exceed 100 g/t silver. Grab samples also range from <0.005 g/t gold to 9.24 g/t gold and seven of fifty-nine samples exceed 1.0 g/t gold.

“The Cerro Cascaron project continues to impress with high grade gold and silver systems spread over large areas on the project. This channel sampling program has provided drill targets at San Pedro and Carabina, confirmed our understanding of the controls on high grade epithermal mineralization, and increased the cumulative strike length of the vein system. Sample results from the newly-recognized high-grade silver La Cascarita prospect demonstrates the district scale of the project with the majority of the property yet to be explored.” commented Alain Charest, Evrim Resources’ Vice President Exploration, Mexico.

About the Cerro Cascaron Project

The 69 square kilometre Cerro Cascaron project covers a historic Colonial-era mining district that contains numerous gold and gold-silver prospects. The property hosts significant veining with high gold and silver grades and has never been drilled or evaluated by modern exploration techniques. 

The sampling program increases confidence of grades and widths at the San Pedro, Carabina and La Julieta veins. The sampling also demonstrates Evrim’s geological model is holding with the boiling zone (high grade gold target) occurring beneath the elevated plateau. Mapping and sampling extends these veins to the north onto the plateau where textural observations indicate high level textures that typically occur above boiling zones within veins. The size of the main vein field has been increased by eight square kilometres and the new La Cascarita prospect is located five kilometres to the west.
