Fireweed to Rebrand as 'Fireweed Metals Corp.' to Reflect Its Emergence as a Leading Critical Minerals Company

Fireweed Zinc LTD. ("Fireweed" or the "Company") (TSXV: FWZ; OTCQB: FWEDF) is pleased to announce it is rebranding and transitioning with a name change to FIREWEED METALS CORP. Fireweed will now operate as and market itself as Fireweed Metals Corp., but formal adoption of the new name will occur when regulatory approvals are received. Fireweed will continue to trade under the same symbols on stock exchanges (TSXV: FWZ; OTCQB: FWEDF; FSE:20F) and the number of shares outstanding will not change.

The rebranding features a new redesigned website, www.FireweedMetals.com, which launches today. Readers are encouraged to explore the new website which features a new look and new content with enhanced visuals and videos.

Executive Statement
Fireweed CEO Brandon Macdonald stated: "Fireweed has quickly grown into much more than a zinc company. The purpose of this rebranding and the new website is to reflect that we are now a leading critical minerals company. Our projects host major deposits of zinc and tungsten, each with unique supply dynamics and compelling demand growth. Our flagship Macmillan Pass Project is one of the largest undeveloped zinc projects in the world. Nearby, our recently acquired Mactung Project is one of the world's largest and highest grade tungsten deposits. To the north, we have also recently acquired the Gayna River zinc-gallium-germanium project. All our projects are in the safe jurisdiction of Canada. With both zinc and tungsten being designated as critical minerals by Canada, the US, and the EU, Fireweed is positioned to be a significant critical minerals player on the world stage and to help enable the transition to a sustainable low-carbon economy."

New Website
In coordination with the rebranding, Fireweed is pleased to launch a new redesigned website, www.FireweedMetals.com. The new website features a new look and content, and will have new content released regularly. Fireweed's ambition is to have industry leading data transparency, and will be working towards that goal in the coming months. Readers are encouraged to explore the new website and learn more about Fireweed and its projects.

Name Change Detailed Information
The name change to Fireweed Metals Corp. was approved by a special resolution at the recent Annual General and Special Meeting of the shareholders held on May 25, 2022 (see Fireweed news release dated June 10, 2022) as well as by the Board of Directors. To finalize the name change, regulatory approvals are needed including TSX Venture Exchange approval. After the name change, Fireweed will continue to trade under the same symbols on stock exchanges (TSXV: FWZ; OTCQB: FWEDF; FSE:20F) but under a new CUSIP number, and the number of shares outstanding will not change.
