Vancouver B.C. – June 19, 2019: Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V:EVM) (“Evrim” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed a letter agreement (the “Agreement”) with Harvest Gold Corp. (“Harvest Gold”) to extend the Cerro Cascaron agreement for a period of six months (the “Extension”). Under the terms of the Agreement, Evrim and Harvest Gold will attempt to renegotiate the terms of the Cerro Cascaron agreement and search for a new gold project in Mexico.
During the Extension, Evrim’s generative team will review projects within its existing property portfolio and locate projects in prospective gold belts in northern Mexico that are aligned with Harvest Gold’s exploration strategy. Evrim has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to acquire a prospective project and subsequently negotiate option terms with Harvest Gold.
Harvest has agreed to pay $55,000 to Evrim to maintain property payments at Cerro Cascaron while both parties renegotiate the Cerro Cascaron agreement. Once the Cerro Cascaron agreement has been renegotiated, Harvest Gold plans to complete a second target drill program on the property. To date, Harvest Gold has spent $1.25 million exploring and drilling the Cerro Cascaron project.
About the Cerro Cascaron Project
The Cerro Cascaron property hosts a low to intermediate sulphidation epithermal gold system that includes a gold-bearing vein in the eastern part of the property. Veining has been mapped over 900 vertical metres, with classic textural evidence of hydrothermal boiling accompanying the highest gold grades. The proposed boiling zone has been established in the upper 380 metres of the vein field. Beneath the boiling zones, silver and base metal rich veins and breccias provide additional exploration targets.
Cerro Cascaron’s setting and mineralization are similar to many epithermal deposits in the Sierra Madre Occidental, including Minera Frisco SAB’s Ocampo Mine to the northwest, Coeur Mining Inc.’s Palmarejo mine, and First Majestic Silver’s San Martin de Bolaños silver mine.
