Vancouver, British Columbia (June 16, 2021) – Tarachi Gold Corp. (CSE: TRG) (OTCQB: TRGGF) (Frankfurt: 4RZ) (“Tarachi” or the “Company” - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/tarachi-gold-corp/) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has now commenced on the San Javier Concession targeting the La Colorada gold bearing breccia pipe discovered by Tarachi in the November and December 2020 drilling program. The purpose of this summer’s four-hole, diamond drilling program is to follow up on the positive results from 2020 by drill testing the breccia pipe down-dip from last year’s high-grade intercepts.
Announced on February 16, 2021, the Company had completed nine diamond drill holes on the San Javier Concession for a total of 1066.30 metres. The 2020 Tarachi drilling discovered significant gold concentrations in holes SJA-20-005/006 which returned values of 11.9 g/t Au over 2.0m and 5.39 g/t Au over 5.6m respectively. In both intercepts the gold mineralization was situated within a large breccia pipe feature containing over 20 percent sulphides, mainly coarse-grained pyrite with minor quartz veining/veinlets. Tarachi geologists determined last year’s program to have discovered the upper portion of an intrusion hosted, breccia pipe where shingle breccias occur and typically are the lower gold grade portion of the pipe.
Tarachi, VP Exploration and Director, Lorne Warner commented: “Originally the November to December 2020 diamond drilling at the San Javier Concession focused on areas with known gold mineralization from historic drilling programs. The gold mineralization was previously thought to be concentrated along a low angle, west dipping shear zone within mainly monzo-diorites, however, we discovered the gold mineralization is situated within a large intrusion hosted, breccia pipe.
Further studies have found our property to be centred along a north-east trend of breccia pipes as shown in Figure # 1, several of which were previously mined for gold and silver by open pit and underground mining methods.”
Figure 1 - San Javier Mineralized Trend
San Javier Trend:
- The El Tigre and La Carrileña are both gold/silver bearing breccia pipes hosted within the same monzonite body as Tarachi’s La Colorada and carried gold grades of 5 to 10 g/t where the finer grained, fracture-controlled pyrites occurred.
- These gold/silver deposits all occur within 2-3 kilometres of each other along a north-east trend.
- The three gold/silver deposits contain coarse grained, subhedral-euhedral pyrite shingle breccias that occur above the main gold zones.
- Two copper/molybdenum breccia pipes also occur along the north-east trend, hosted in granodiorites.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Core samples will be selected by a geologist and sawed in half. One half of the core remains in the core tray the other half is placed into a plastic bag. Sample tags will be submitted into each bag before being sealed and stored at the campsite in a secure area and were later transported by company truck directly the Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories (BVM) in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. At the laboratory, the samples were dried, crushed and pulverized with the pulps being sent airfreight for analysis to BVM in Vancouver, B.C. for 37-element ICP analysis after modified aqua regia digestion. Gold assays are done in Hermosillo by 50-gram fire assay with an atomic absorption spectroscopy finish.
Samples will be checked using a 50-gram fire assay with a gravimetric finish for samples greater than 10ppm Au and 1Kg metallic fire assay with duplicate minus fraction analyzed. Both Hermosillo and Vancouver BVM facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited. Laboratory control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were inserted by the laboratory into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the quality assurance/quality control protocol.
About Tarachi Gold
Tarachi Gold is a Canadian-listed junior gold exploration company focused on exploring and developing projects in Mexico. The Company’s Tarachi project covers 3,708ha of highly prospective mineral concessions in the Sierra Madre gold belt of Sonora, Mexico in close proximity to Alamos Gold’s Mulatos mine and Agnico Eagle’s La India mine. Tarachi has also acquired the Magistral Mill and tailings project in Durango, Mexico. Magistral includes a 1,000 tpd mill and access to a tailings resource (non-compliant with NI 43-101) estimated to contain 1.3Mt at 2.05g/t Au which the Company expects to bring into production in 2022.

These forward‐looking statements or information relate to, among other things: future exploration programs, and the completion of drill holes; and receipt of assay results.
Forward‐looking statements and forward‐looking information relating to any future mineral production, liquidity, enhanced value and capital markets profile of Tarachi, future growth potential for Tarachi and its business, and future exploration plans are based on management’s reasonable assumptions, estimates, expectations, analyses and opinions, which are based on management’s experience and perception of trends, current conditions and expected developments, and other factors that management believes are relevant and reasonable in the circumstances, but which may prove to be incorrect. Assumptions have been made regarding, among other things, the price of silver, gold and other metals; no escalation in the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic; costs of exploration and development; the estimated costs of development of exploration projects; Tarachi’s ability to operate in a safe and effective manner and its ability to obtain financing on reasonable terms.
These statements reflect Tarachi’s respective current views with respect to future events and are necessarily based upon a number of other assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by management, are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties and contingencies.
