Vancouver, November 24, 2015 - Canasil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: CLZ, DB Frankfurt: 3CC, “Canasil” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Orex Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: REX, “Orex”) has awarded an initial 2,000 metres diamond drilling contract to Kluane Mexico S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of Kluane Drilling Ltd., for the Sandra-Escobar Silver Project in northern Durango State, Mexico. The drill program is expected to start following approval of the necessary permits.
The Sandra-Escobar Project is being advanced by Orex under an option agreement announced by Canasil and Orex on September 15, 2015. The project is located 200 km northwest of the City of Durango with excellent access and infrastructure, within a prolific mining district hosting several past and present producing mines and significant silver-gold deposits.
The service provider, Kluane Drilling Ltd. (“KDL”), is an experienced diamond drilling company, with a service and supply office in Durango, Mexico. A KD-1000 man-portable drill rig will be used for HTW and NTW sized wireline core diamond drilling. This portable rig design minimizes the social and environmental impact of planned drill programs.
Sandra-Escobar Silver-Gold Project, Durango, Mexico:
The Sandra-Escobar project is located 200 km northwest of the City of Durango, Mexico, in the heart of the “Mexican Silver Trend”, with excellent access and infrastructure. This prolific trend hosts some of the world’s largest silver camps and deposits with many past and present producing mines and significant silver-gold deposits. The project area covers over 8,100 hectares of mineral concessions with multiple mineralized epithermal veins and breccia structures. These veins form a high level silver-gold-base metals system, hosted in andesitic and rhyolitic rocks, centered on a large rhyolite dome complex in the north and silver systems in smaller rhyolite dome complexes to the southeast. Intense alteration zones and fluid flooding in permeable formations may also indicate the presence of bulk tonnage targets.
