Canadian Zinc Corp. (TSX:CZN,OTCQB:CZICF) released an update on its work with Buchans Minerals Corp. (TSXV:BMC), a subsidiary of Minco plc (LSE:MIO).
The companies have agreed to undertake a research program on the viability of developing their respective zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold deposits via a central milling facility. Both companies’ deposits are located in Newfoundland.
As quoted in the press release:

The objective of the research program is to determine the technical and economic viability of developing the companies’ key deposits into producing operations by utilizing a central milling facility. The concept is based on the potential that collectively, the satellite deposits can be economically mined, pre-concentrated, trucked and then milled simultaneously or sequentially through a central mill.
The Company was awarded funding by the Research & Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador (“RDC”) to undertake a research program to complete physical and metallurgical bench scale studies on seven volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) deposits located in central Newfoundland. RDC is providing funding of $535,000 for the project through the GeoEXPLORE Industry-led R&D Technology Development and Demonstration Program. The total cost of the research project is estimated at $735,000.
Outcomes of the research project will provide key information on which to further evaluate the economic viability of developing the central Newfoundland deposits through a central milling facility. Positive results would lead to continued development work on the known deposits, renewed exploration interest leading to new discoveries and, ultimately, potential mining operations in central Newfoundland.
