Canadian Silver Hunter Acquires Additional Claims in Prospective Lac Windfall Area of Quebec

Jan 19, 2021

Canadian Silver Hunter Inc. is pleased to announce that the company has staked an additional 56 mining claims totalling 3,155 hectares, in the Lac Windfall area of Quebec. The claims are contiguous with the company's existing Lac Lachance North property, which now covers over 5,300 hectares. The Company holds a total of 128 mining claims representing just over 7,200 hectares in the Lac Windfall area. The Company acquired the new claims for staking costs.

The additional claims were staked in order to cover electromagnetic anomalies associated with east-west trending fault zones on the northern limit of the Urban-Barry volcanic belt that hosts numerous gold deposits, including the Osisko Mining Inc., Lac Windfall Gold Deposit. The mineral resource defined by Osisko comprises 2,382,000 tonnes at 7.85 g/t Au (601,000 ounces)* in the indicated mineral resource category and 10,605,000 tonnes at 6.70 g/t Au (2,284,000 ounces)* in the inferred mineral resource category.

Recent work by Osisko in the vicinity of the Lachance North claim group has indicated gold mineralization detected by diamond drilling associated with conductive sulphide zones. A 2018 Osisko report stated that drill hole OSK-UB-18-092 (Figure 1), "intersected 0.71 g/t Au over 1 metre. This grade is hosted in a massive sulphide zone within a strongly silicified unit of intermediate composition. Other anomalous gold values were intersected, ranging from 0.11 to 0.48 g/t Au, associated to other massive pyrrhotite-pyrite zones, often located at their contacts".

Osisko drill hole OSK-UB-18-092 is located within a kilometer south of Canadian Silver Hunter's claims, which are also located on strike, both east and west of the Osisko drill hole.

The geological conditions that hosted gold mineralization on the Osisko property also exist on Canadian Silver Hunter's newly acquired claims. In 1992, Noranda Exploration drilled three holes on ground now covered by Canadian Silver Hunter's claims (See Figure 1). All three holes intersected sulphide mineralization hosted by intermediate to felsic tuffaceous rocks including one that intersected 0.38% zinc over 3.1 meters. The other two holes were drilled in close proximity to each other and intersected 20% pyrrhotite and trace chalcopyrite over widths of 4.2m and 5.2m respectively. (GM51713 Quebec Assessment Files)

The acquisition of the new property in the highly regarded Windfall Lake Area of Quebec, furthers the Company's plan to enhance shareholder value by acquiring claims of merit in the strategic mining areas of West Timmins, Ontario, Lac Windfall, Quebec and Cobalt, Ontario.
