Canada Zinc drills 28.67 m of 10.38% Zn plus Pb at Akie
CANADA ZINC Metals Corp. has released the drill results from the first two holes of the 2017 Akie drill program. The program focused on resource expansion and new target development on the robust and high-grade central core of the zinc-lead-silver Cardiac Creek deposit. The program commenced in June and was completed in August using two drills. A total of eight drill holes were successfully drilled on the Cardiac Creek deposit for a total of 4,700 metres. Assay results are pending from the remaining six drill holes.
• Drill hole A-17-132 returned 10.38 per cent zinc plus lead and 14.2 grams per tonne silver over a true width of 28.67 metres. This includes 12.39 per cent zinc plus lead and 15.9 g/t silver over a true width of 19.81 metres, which includes 14.42 per cent zinc plus lead and 17.2 g/t silver over a true width of 10.16 metres.
• Drill hole A-17-133 returned 12.11 per cent zinc
plus lead and 16.0 g/t silver over a true width of 9.42 metres within a broader mineralized interval of 25.63 metres.
Significant results from A-17-132 and A-17-133 are shown in the attached table.

Peeyush Varshney, chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted with the first set of drill results from the 2017 Akie exploration program. We continue to demonstrate the robust and consistent nature and te nor of the Car diac Creek zone mineralization. Results released today continue to support our geologic model and highlight the internal continuity of the mineralization. The mineralization remains open along strike and at depth. We continue to systematically drill off this deposit to establish the size of this large zinc-dominated mineralized system. We look forward to announcing further drill results over the next several weeks.”
