San Javier Site Visit July 2021

On August 4th,2021 Canuc announced intersection of massive magnetite in the first drill hole targeting magnetic anomalies at San Javier:
Drilling has encountered massive magnetite at 343 meters of depth in the first drill hole at the copper-gold zone of the San Javier Project in Sonora State, Mexico. Company geologists believe this is confirmation of Dr. Murray W. Hitzman’s hypothesis (first postulated 2006) of IOCG potential at San Javier. The drill core produced visible sphalerite, marmatite and chalcopyrite.
Massive magnetite has been encountered for over 150 meters of vertical extent at the time of writing (Aug 1st, 2021) and continues at depth.
Diamond drilling (San Javier Project)
HQ size core is drilled with the diamond drill targeting magnetic-high anomalies detected by drone supported and ground based magnetic surveys. Drill core is transported to the company’s core shack and cut first for visual inspection, and then for further transport to Bureau Veritas in Hermosillo.
Cutting core at the Company’s core shack (San Javier Project)
Massive magnetite is the strongest evidence yet supporting the IOCG thesis for San Javier. Samples have been sent to the lab for multi element analysis.
Massive magnetite at 343 m with visible sphalerite & chalcopyrite
A bulldozer has completed road construction for the drill pad at Chiripas which is the location of the company’s next drill target. Old mine workings assayed very high to bonanza grades of silver in magnetite veins which come to surface at this location. The magnetic anomaly at this location has been calculated to manifest at a depth of approximately 200 m.
