Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. Peeyush Varsh­ney re­ports

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.

High­lights:

• 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.

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.”
