Vancouver, May 02, 2017 – Canasil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: CLZ, DB Frankfurt: 3CC, “Canasil”) announces assay results for drill holes ES-17-18 and ES-17-19 of the 2016-17 core drilling program at the La Esperanza silver-zinc-lead project in Durango and Zacatecas States, Mexico. Both drill holes intersected wide mineralized intervals with multiple silver-zinc-lead intercepts, with appreciable gold values in ES-17-19, reporting high-grade intervals from the La Esperanza vein. These holes now complete the current drill program, which was expanded to eight drill holes for a total of 2,452 metres (m). All drill holes successfully intersected the La Esperanza vein indicating a strong mineralized system which remains open in both directions to the southeast and northwest along strike and to depth. Of particular note are the high gold grades observed for the first time together with high silver grades in drill hole ES-17-19.
