NEWFOUNDLAND – Vancouver-based Canadian Zinc Corp. has received the final results from the 2017 drilling program at its Tulks South zinc-lead project in the central part of the province. The program included 14 holes and 4,961 metres.

Drilling extended the mineralization of the Boomerang-Domino deposit 50 metres up-dip with hole G17-288. That hole intersected 3.35 metres grading 2.76% zinc, 2.30% lead, 0.20% copper, 70.9 g/t silver, and 1.5 g/t gold. Step out drilling from there, intersected variably altered and volcanic-sedimentary stratigraphy with local pyrite intervals up to 1.0 metre thick but no base metal mineralization.

The Boomerang deposit contains 1.4 million indicated tonnes at 7.07% zinc and 3.00% lead plus 278,100 inferred tonnes at 6.72% zinc and 2.88% lead.

The Domino deposit contains 411,200 indicated tonnes averaging 6.3% zinc and 2.80% lead.
