NorZinc Ltd announced final assay results from surface drill hole PC-20-225, the first hole drilled at the Company's Prairie Creek Mine Site since 2015. Designed to target the inferred Main Quartz Vein resource immediately adjacent to but outside of the existing mine plan, PC-20-225 intercepted the MQV as expected plus two stockwork zones not yet included in any resource estimate to date. Further holes are planned for 2021.
Assay Highlights of Hole PC-20-225
MQV intercept 4.26m (estimated true width 3.94m) grading 203.8g/t (5.9 oz/ton) Silver, 27.18% Zinc and 16.89% Lead (56.28% ZnEq)
1.02m grading 189 g/t (5.5 oz/ton) Silver, 25.40% Zinc, 10.4% Lead (45.28% ZnEq)
1.02m grading 120 g/t (3.5 oz/ton) Silver, 32.50% Zinc, 4.47% Lead (42.45% ZnEq)
1.86m grading 205.3 g/t (6.0 oz/ton) Silver, 9.43% Zinc, 20.19% Lead (42.91% ZnEq)
While the drill program was recently concluded per the Company's press release dated Nov 20, 2020, the Company-owned drill remains on the drill pad and has been winterized, for potential re-activation once warmer conditions arrive.
New geological data, including assays, will remain archived in the Company's geological databases and will be incorporated into future geological modeling and resource estimates.
