Vancouver B.C. — August 2nd, 2017: Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V:EVM) (“Evrim” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Sarape gold-silver project in central Sonora, Mexico. Sarape was identified through Evrim’s generative programs with reconnaissance exploration completed in early 2017. The project is 100% owned by Evrim with no underlying royalties and is located near excellent infrastructure with roads and power crossing the 5,776 hectare property.
Sarape is located in an emerging epithermal gold belt that hosts Premier Gold’s Mercedes Mine and First Majestic’s Santa Elena Mine.
“Sarape displays many similarities with Evrim’s Ermitaño project discovery where exploration partner First Majestic drilled 18 metres grading 11.4 g/t gold,” commented Charles Funk, Evrim’s Vice President of New Opportunities and Exploration. “Common to both projects are prominent outcropping broad veins with low to moderate grade gold and silver at surface. A key observation lies in the recognition of textures within the veins at surface which commonly occur above concealed high-grade ore-shoots.”
