Aurcana Commences Diamond Drilling Program at the Revenue-Virginius Mine Located in Colorado, USA. Targeting Virginius Vein Extension

VANCOUVER, BC – July 23, 2020 - AURCANA CORPORATION ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSXV: AUN; OTC: AUNFF) is pleased to announce the commencement of a diamond drilling program at the Revenue-Virginius Mine. The drill program will follow and explore the continuation of high-grade silver Resources and Reserves present on the Virginius vein along its strike extension into the recently acquired Blue Grass patented mining claim. The drill program will consist of some 7,000 feet of HQ sized diamond drill core in 10 holes.

Blue Grass Claim Along Virginius Vein

The Blue Grass claim covers 1,500 feet (457 meters) of the 7500 feet (2,286 meters) of known strike length on the Virginius vein north of the Monongahela claim.. In addition to the 1500 feet (457 meters) of strike length on the Blue Grass claim, the Company owns an additional 6,000 feet (1,829 meters) to the north of the claim. This total strike length nearly double the 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) utilized in the Company’s 2018 feasibility study for the restart of the mine (“2018 FS”). The Virginius vein was historically the most proflic producer of silver, lead and zinc in the mine.

Virginius Vein Longitudinal Section - Feasibility Study Resource

As detailed in the 2018 FS, the Virginius vein contains just over 11.2 million Ag ounces of Proven + Probable Reserves within 15.2 million Ag ounces of Measured and Indicated Resources, and 5.2 million Ag ounces of Inferred Resources (see the 2018 FS posted on the Company’s website or on the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.).
