Canuc Resources Doubles Land Position at San Javier
January 27, 2021
Canuc Resources Corporation (“Canuc” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CDA) (OTCQB: CNUCF) is pleased to announce the singing of purchase agreements for 5 claims in the San Javier mining and exploration camp. These newly acquired claims are contiguous with the Company’s existing claims and represent an important expansion of the Company’s holdings in a rapidly evolving IOCG exploration environment.
Canuc began acquiring claims at San Javier in 2010. Until recently, the Company had accumulated 17 contiguous claims comprising 416.2 hectares of ground along high-bonanza grade silver veins and covering silver-mineralized stockwork and breccia zones. In 2020 an extensive silver-mineralized breccia discovery combined with intense magnetite swarms on the Company’s eastern claim area resulted in an IOCG deposit potential hypothesis.
The 5 most recently acquired claims, comprising 416.9 hectares, cover extensions on at least one additional IOCG target. The Company’s combined ground position now covers 833.1 contiguous hectares of centrally located and highly prospective ground in a rapidly evolving mining and exploration camp.
San Javier 2020
The San Javier area first came back into focus during August of 2020 when Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSX-V: BRO) announced an earn in on 1,184 hectares of ground in the heart of the San Javier mining and exploration camp. These exploration claims are contiguous with Canuc claims to the south and east.
Further interest in the San Javier area came during October 2020 when Osisko Development Corp. (TSX-V: ODV) announced acquisition of the San Antonio claims group. The San Antonio claims acquired by Osisko Development Corp. are contiguous with both Canuc and Barksdale claims to the east. The Osisko claims cover an area of 11,338 hectares.
“We are pleased to have been able to acquire important mineral claims at San Javier in advance of drilling on the IOCG targets that have recently been identified on our Company ground. The Canuc team believes that we have significant discovery potential, and that our ground position is centrally located in what is rapidly becoming a dynamic mining and exploration camp.” Stated Christopher Berlet, President & CEO of Canuc Resources Corp.
