CALGARY, AB, CANADA, November 16, 2023 / — Bocana Resources Corp. (TSXV: BOCA) (Frankfurt: VC1) (“Bocana” or the “Company”) a company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in South America, is pleased to announce that the Company has completed the delivery of its select core samples for assay analysis. These core samples were collected from our recently completed diamond drilling campaign at the Company’s Escala Project in Southwest Bolivia.

This milestone is important for Bocana as it signifies the progress made in the exploration and development of the Company’s inaugural mineral property in South America. The delivery of the core samples for assay analysis is a crucial step in assessing the potential value and viability of the near surface porphyry deposit at the Escala area concession.

“The recent delivery of our core samples for assay analysis is an exciting development for Bocana. We are eager to receive the results and gain further insights into the mineral potential of our Escala concession. This progress brings us one step closer to achieving our mission of responsible mineral exploration and development in South America,” Timothy Turner, CEO of Bocana.

The Company anticipates the results to be delivered on the first two cores in the next few weeks, depending on the workload at the lab. The subsequent assay reports should follow shortly thereafter.

Looking ahead, Bocana plans to continue its exploration and development efforts in South America. The Company remains committed to utilizing advanced technologies and environmentally conscious practices to maximize the value of its mineral properties while minimizing its ecological footprint.

Core Sampling Protocols

All drill core samples have been collected under the supervision of Company employees. Drill cores were transported from the drill platform to the camp’s logging facility where it was geotechnically and geologically logged, photographed, and split by diamond saw prior to being sampled. Samples were then bag, sealed, and numbered in order to maintain a chain-of-custody. Company employees also inserted blank, duplicate and a certified standard sample in each batch of twenty samples prior to transportation from the Escala area camp to the ALS Bolivia Ltda. laboratory site in Oruro, Bolivia. ALS will provide Bocana with sample preparation and analysis services at its ISO/IEC 17025 accredited facilities. The ALS unit in Oruro is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025:2005 accredited and ALS is the only laboratory in South America that has a high number of analytical methods accredited by ISO IEC 17025 and has the sample preparation stage included in this accreditation.
