Canada Zinc Metals Corp. (TSXV:CZX) announced assay results from drill holes A-15-124 and A-15-125, completed at its Akie property. The holes were focused on expanding the current indicated resource, as well as the known extents of the high-grade zinc-lead-silver system in the central core of the Cardiac Creek deposit.
Results for hole A-15-124 are as follows:
Drill hole A-15-124 targeted the high grade core of the Cardiac Creek deposit with the intended pierce point located approximately 75 metres down-dip of the high grade hole A-05-32. Previously reported results from A-05-32 include: 26.7 metres (core length) of 14.69% Zn+Pb.
The hole intersected a 30 metre interval of proximal facies pyrite mineralization overlying the Cardiac Creek Zone. The Cardiac Creek Zone consisted of three main sections extending over a downhole length of 55.28 metres separated by intervals of weakly mineralized shale. The first section occurred immediately below proximal facies mineralization and consisted of approximately 40% visible sulphide bedding with sphalerite bands over a downhole interval of 19.87 metres. The second section is characterized by approximately 60% visible sulphide bedding with mottled sphalerite bands with galena over a downhole interval of 8.73 metres. The last section is a well-developed zone of Cardiac Creek style mineralisation with approximately 65-70% visible sulphide bedding throughout, over a downhole interval of 15.81 metres. The hole was finished in calcareous siltstone at a total depth of 708.66 metres.
A-15-124 contains an extensive interval of mineralisation that is present from 577.63 to 662.30 metres that grades 5.47% combined Zn+Pb and 9.20 g/t Ag over a true width of 58.53 metres. The Cardiac Creek Zone, included within that interval from 601.13 to 656.41 metres, returned 7.72% combined Zn+Pb and 12.30 g/t Ag over a true width of 38.43 metres. Higher grade intervals include 11.58 % Zn+Pb and 18.22 g/t Ag over a true width of 21.41 metres, and 17.20% Zn+Pb and 26.43 g/t Ag over a true width of 11.09 metres. The results from A-15-124 are tabulated below.
Here are results for hole A-15-125:
Drill hole A-15-125 targeted the up-dip extents of the high grade core of the Cardiac Creek deposit with the intended pierce point located between holes A-07-49 and A-07-50 and along strike of A-07-53 with an approximate separation of 75 metres. Previously reported results from these surrounding holes included: 20.19 metres (core length) of 13.65% Zn+Pb in A-07-49, 20.98 metres (core length) of 20.08% Zn+Pb in A-07-50, and 16.23 metres (core length) of 15.15% Zn+Pb in A-07-53.
The hole intersected a thin 6.67 metre interval of proximal facies pyrite mineralisation before shifting into the Cardiac Creek Zone at 416.05 metres. The zone, extending to a depth of 439.91 metres, is characterized by laminar pyrite with steadily increasing amounts of mottled sphalerite banding with galena occurring downhole. Based on visual estimates, higher grade Cardiac Creek mineralization occurred from 429.98 to 439.91 metres. In this interval, the mineralisation is dominantly mottled sphalerite-quartz-carbonate-galena, with minor laminated pyrite. Disseminated galena is fine grained and in close association with the mottling textures. Visible mineralisation makes up approximately 45% of the interval. The hole was terminated at a depth of 461.64 metres in Road River Group siltstone.
The Cardiac Creek Zone was intersected from 414.85 to 441.62 metres and returned 8.53% combined Zn+Pb and 12.28 g/t Ag over a true width of 23.37 metres. Inclusive higher grade intervals include 11.45% Zn+Pb and 15.75 g/t Ag over a true width of 15.76 metres, and 15.45% Zn+Pb and 21.76 g/t Ag over a true width of 8.68 metres.
