(CSE: “TOC”) (“Tocvan” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce since the beginning of the fiscal year, September 1, 2020, the Company has received a total of 2,630,000 previously issued warrants and options exercised for a total gross proceeds of CDN$650,000.00.
In addition, the Company is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered
private placement of units (“Units”) for gross proceeds of $746,801.00 (the “Offering”). The Offering consisted of the issuance of an aggregate of 1,244,668 Units at a price of $0.60 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share (“Common Share”) in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each full Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.75, for a period of 18 months from the closing of the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, the Company paid aggregate cash commissions to arm’s length finders who assisted with the Offering of approximately $49,960 and issued 83,267 finder warrants (“Finder Warrants”). Each Finder Warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.60 per Common Share for a period of 18 months from the closing of the Offering.

Discussion on Use of Proceeds
Proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Pilar Gold-Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. A Phase II drill program is due to commence by mid-April and will be conducted in two stages. Stage One will continue to expand the Main Zone and build on the success of the Phase I drill program which is highlighted by 94.6m at 1.6 g/t Au, including 9.2m at 10.8 g/t Au and 38 g/t Ag. Stage Two will begin to test the new property wide targets identified during the 2021 surface exploration program, including the NEW Triple Vein Zone and 4 Trench Extension. The Company is also actively evaluating other gold-silver projects in Sonora with similar potential to Pilar.
Tocvan remains disciplined in its approach to minimize share dilution and maximize shareholder value with the systematic advancement of the Pilar Gold-Silver Project. The Company has recently seen the majority of outstanding Warrants exercised from the February 13, 2020 private placement. This combined with the closing of today’s private placement will give the Company sufficient capital to explore Pilar with multiple drill programs planned through to the end of the 2021.
Derek A. Wood, President & CEO commented, “We are extremely pleased with the progress of Pilar, especially with our recent drilling success and we look forward to an active year of drilling as we continue to unlock the property wide potential of Pilar. We remain focused on maximizing shareholder value, with the closing of the private placement we now have the capital to not only advance Pilar but evaluate new gold assets in Mexico to add to the Company’s growing portfolio.”
About the Pilar Property
The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite and rhyolite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4 Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Over 19,200 m of drilling have been completed to date.
