FIREWEED ZINC LTD announced plans for its 2019 exploration program on the Macmillan Pass Zinc Project in Yukon, Canada. The Company anticipates that the drilling campaign will start in June and will include both greenfield targets and step-out drill targets. Fireweed CEO Mr Brandon Macdonald stated “I am very excited about our 2019 exploration plans as we continue to build the Macmillan Pass Project through both expansion of one of the largest undeveloped zinc resources in the world and exploration for new discoveries on our under-explored district-scale property. Our 2018 work program generated many exceptional greenfield targets. New prospective geophysical and geochemical anomalies have been outlined along part of the Fertile Corridor, a trend already known to host large mineralized systems including the Tom and Jason deposits, as well as the End Zone and Boundary Zone. We believe there is strong potential for discovery of another large zinc deposit in the district and have designed our 2019 exploration program using state-of-the-art technologies successfully tested in 2018 to locate it while at the same time carrying out step-out drilling to expand the large known resources.”
