Fireweed Zinc announced that the first field crews have been mobilized to the Macmillan Pass Zinc Project in Yukon, Canada. The first tasks will be construction of drill sites on the first target area at Tom North and general preparation of the camp, facilities and equipment for the summer exploration program. Drilling and other field work are expected to begin within seven days. Fireweed CEO Mr Brandon Macdonald stated “I am very excited about our 2019 exploration program. We have step out holes planned to expand on our current resources, which are already among the largest undeveloped zinc resources in the world, and we have a number of excellent greenfield targets generated last year that we will drill this summer in search of new discoveries to further grow the project. In the past two years of exploration at Macmillan Pass, we have consistently added high-grade drilling results every year. We anticipate the 2019 campaign will have continued success and look forward to seeing the results.”

Planned 2000 m core drilling and 1000 m of RC drilling
