Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – February 9, 2021) – Canadian Silver Hunter Inc. (TSXV: AGH.H) (“Canadian Silver Hunter” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that results have been received for a B-horizon, soil geochemistry survey on the Lost Dog Property located in the West Timmins area of Ontario.

The following table shows maximum values for each area.
|Area||Gold (ppb)||Silver (ppm)||Copper (ppm)||Lead (ppm)||Zinc (ppm)|
The results are significant as they are coincidental with previously identified magnetic and DC/IP (Direct Current resistivity and Induced Polarization) anomalies.
Jeff Hunter (President and CEO of Canadian Silver Hunter) commented, “We are very pleased with the results we received from our initial geochemical soil sample survey on the Lost Dog property. Anomalous values in gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc have provided excellent targets for follow-up work once the snow is gone in the Spring. This, combined with the excellent location of the property in the Timmins Gold Camp, plus the fact that this property has seen little exploration in the past, should equal an exciting year of exploration here.”
Recommended future work will include:
1) Continue analysis of the existing soil samples to further compare anomalous values to geophysical surveys done in 2011.
2) Expand the soil sampling to extend the identified anomalous trends.
3) Return to the property in the Spring 2021 and mechanically excavate trenches in order to determine what may be causing the anomalous values.
4) Generate drill targets based on the results of the above work.
