Vancouver, January 10, 2007 - Canasil Resources Inc. (Canasil, TSX-V: CLZ) is pleased to announce that the Company has received and filed the NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Phase 1 diamond drill program at the La Esperanza Silver-Zinc-Lead project in Zacatecas State, Mexico, prepared by Dr. Peter A. Christopher, P. Eng. PHD. The report may be viewed on the Company’s website at http://canasil.com/_resources/la_esperanza_tp.pdf?v=0.661 , and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com .
The report concludes and recommends that: “The widths and grades observed in the Phase 1 drill program indicate a strongly mineralized system, which is open along strike and dip. Based on the success of the initial 1,182 meter drilling program..., a Phase 2A, 2500 meters drilling program for testing along vein strike and dip and for resource definition is recommended. A Phase 2B resource estimate and preliminary assessment (scoping study) is recommended after completion of Phase 2 drilling.”
The proposed budget for the recommended Phase 2A diamond drill program is $450,000 and for the Phase 2B scoping study is $50,000. The Company will be evaluating opportunities for financing the proposed programs and plans to proceed with the Phase 2A diamond drill program once the necessary funding has been arranged.
