NorZinc Ltd. (TSX: NZC) (OTCQB: NORZF) is pleased to announce final assay results from surface drill hole PC-20-225, the first hole drilled at the Company’s Prairie Creek Mine Site since 2015. Designed to target the inferred Main Quartz Vein resource immediately adjacent to but outside of the existing mine plan, PC-20-225 intercepted the MQV as expected plus two stockwork zones not yet included in any resource estimate to date. Further holes are planned for 2021.
Assay Highlights of Hole PC-20-225
The resulting composited intervals from hole PC-20-225 are presented in the table below.
|Mineralization style||From (m)||To
|Length on core
|1 ZnEq = (grade of Zn in %) + [(grade of lead in % * price of lead in US$/lb * 22.046 * recovery of lead in % * payable lead in %) + (grade of silver in g/t * (price of silver in US$/oz/ 31.10348) * recovery of silver in % * payable silver in %)]/(price of zinc in US$/lb*22.046 * recovery of zinc in % * payable zinc in %), where prices of silver, lead and zinc are $20.00/oz, $1.00/lb and $1.00/lb respectively, recoveries are 92%, 88% and 75% respectively, and payables are 81%, 95% and 85%, as stated the in Company’s 2017 Prairie Creek Property Feasibility Study NI 43-101 Technical Report.

While the drill program was recently concluded per the Company’s press release dated Nov 20, 2020, the Company-owned drill remains on the drill pad and has been winterized, for potential re-activation once warmer conditions arrive.
New geological data, including assays, will remain archived in the Company’s geological databases and will be incorporated into future geological modeling and resource estimates.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Drill core samples were cut by diamond saw and securely, through chain of custody, shipped to AGAT Laboratories in Mississauga for multi-element assay by ICP-OES analysis. Standard reference material, blanks, and duplicates were inserted into the sample stream for additional quality control. Further assays and analyses were completed where appropriate.
