Canasil Acquires 100,000 Hectares (247,000 Acres) Strategic Land Position and Mobilizes to Drill at the Salamandra Project in Durango, Mexico
March 27, 2007
Vancouver, March 27, 2007 - Canasil Resources Inc. (Canasil, TSX-V: CLZ) announces that the Company has acquired through direct staking of claims 100,000 hectares (247,000 acres) surrounding and adjacent to the Salamandra zinc-silver project in Durango, Mexico. The area covers a northwest-southeast trend of magnetic anomalies, possibly related to intrusive bodies within calcareous sediments, similar to the formation observed at the Salamandra project. The claim area lies within the Fresnillo silver / base metal trend which extends from northwest of Durango State through Zacatecas State and on to Guanajuato State. The Company will be initiating a regional mapping and sampling survey and evaluation program to identify prospective targets for further exploration within this large claim area.
The Company has also concluded a drill contract to start the Phase 1 diamond drill program, initially planned for 1,500 metres, at the Salamandra project. The preparations for the drill program have been completed and the drill program is planned to start during the first week of April 2007. The drill program will test a number of strong chargeability anomalies identified by the 3-Dimensional Induced Polarisation survey over an area of 2,000 metres by 1,200 metres, conducted during the fourth quarter 2006. The chargeability anomalies are coincident with surface silver, zinc, copper and lead geochemical anomalies, indicating the potential for disseminated skarn and manto replacement mineralized zones.

Gary Nordin, Director of Canasil, commented: “We are very pleased with the acquisition of a major land position in the Salamandra project area. Our exploration work to date in this area has provided a better understanding of the geological environment in this region, which is located close to our operating base in Durango and well known for its mineral wealth. The numerous operating mines and deposits confirm the region’s potential for hosting high-grade vein type deposits, as well as large disseminated deposits. Our currently planned drill program will provide further data both on the Salamandra project and for evaluating prospects within the new claim area.”
The Salamandra project covers 2,900 hectares (7,163 acres), located 35 km NE of the city of Durango in Durango State, Mexico, with good access via paved and gravel roads. The access, infrastructure, climate and topography at the Salamandra property provide favourable conditions for exploration and development.
