Canada Zinc Metals is a mineral exploration company focused on unlocking the potential of a future long life mining district in the low-risk development environment of British Columbia, Canada. Canada Zinc Metals is the dominant land holder in a prolific mineral belt called the Kechika Trough, which hosts several known Zinc-Lead-Silver base metals deposits including the company’s Cardiac Creek deposit. The Company has divided its extensive tenure package into two 100% owned projects: Akie (hosting the Cardiac Creek deposit) and Kechika Regional, which has significant blue sky potential.
In May 2016, the Company announced a revised NI 43-101 compliant resource calculation for the Cardiac Creek Deposit. The resource now measures:
Indicated 19.6 million tonnes grading 8.2% zinc, 1.6% lead and 13.6 g/t silver (at a 5% zinc cut-off )
Inferred 8.1 million tonnes grading 6.8% zinc, 1.2% lead and 11.2 g/t silver (at a 5% zinc cut-off )
This new resource establishes the Cardiac Creek deposit as one of the premier undeveloped lead-zinc-silver rich base metal projects in the world.
