Canadian Silver Hunter Inc., Drilling Underway at Lost Dog Property, West Timmins, Ontario.

Canadian Silver Hunter's Lost Dog property consists of 52 contiguous mining claims covering close to 1,300 hectares.  The property is located in Denton Township, approximately thirty kilometres south-west of the Timmins city center, and 12 kilometres west of Pan American Silver’s West Timmins Mine, in the Porcupine Mining Division of Northern Ontario.

Positive results from the November 2020's soil sample program identified five clusters of anomalous values on the property.  Anomalous values in gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc provided excellent targets for follow up work.  Of  the 350 samples collected and submitted for analysis, just over one third assayed at or above the minimum detection limit for gold (0.005 ppm).  The samples also returned a single sample assay result of 13g/t (ppm) silver, and another sample that returned 416 ppm copper (CSH PR, February 09, 2021).

Today Canadian Silver Hunter Inc. (“Canadian Silver Hunter” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AGH.H) announced that drilling has commenced at the Lost Dog property.
Past geophysical surveys have identified a consistent magnetic low that crosses the property associated with Induced Polarization chargeability anomalies.  The magnetic low may be an expression of an extension or splay of the Destor Porcupine Fault that has been linked to numerous gold deposits in the prolific Timmins Gold Camp.  Drill targets for this initial exploratory drill program have been identified using these geophysical and soil geochemical survey results, to test structure and geology on the property.

Canadian Silver Hunter Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on gold, silver and cobalt exploration in Ontario and Quebec. Canadian Silver Hunter currently owns three properties: the Silver-Centre property which includes the prolific past producing Keeley and Frontier mines, located near Cobalt, Ontario; the Lac Lachance property, located in the Windfall Lake area near Lebel sur Quevillon, Quebec; the Dark Horse and Whitesides property located near West Timmins, Ontario, and has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Lost Dog property, located near Timmins, Ontario.
