SASKATCHEWAN – Murchison Minerals of Toronto has filed additional claims covering about 940 ha adjacent to its 3,202-ha Brabant zinc project near the town of Brabant Lake. The extra claims cover electromagnetic conductor trends identified from a 2011 VTEM survey.

The company says the Brabant property hosts one of the highest grade undeveloped zinc deposits in Canada. The 2008 resource estimate includes 1.5 million indicated tonnes grading 9.18% Zn, 0.79% Cu, 0.23% Pb, 32.6 g/t Ag, and 0.15 g/t Au. There are also 3.0 million inferred tonnes at 5.55% Zn, 0.55% Cu, 0.13% Pb, 13.9 g/t Ag, and 0.10 g/t Au.

Murchison intends to proceed with prospecting and mapping of the conductor trends and mineral occurrences at Brabant. Geochemical surveys will also be conducted.
