MiningNewsBreaks – Slave Lake Zinc Corp. (CSE: SLZ) Eyes Potential for ‘Critical Metal’ Exploration Targets at O’Connor Lake Project

Company: Slave Lake Zinc Corp. (SLZ)
Category: News

Slave Lake Zinc (CSE: SLZ) today announced its continued identification of exciting new exploration targets at the O’Connor Lake project. According to the update, the company’s review of historical drill logs indicates that the extensive drill program testing zinc – lead deposits at the original discovery, MWK number 1 vein, also reported intersecting pegmatitic dykes and pegmatitic granite in multiple drill holes. As part of the proposed summer work program, Slave Lake intends to locate the old core to determine if sampling it for lithium is feasible after this length of time. “This recent information demonstrates that pegmatite granite systems are widespread on our property,” said Ritch Wigham, CEO of Slave Lake. “It is important to note that only preliminary study of these pegmatites was ever done, and only then because they were associated with the structures being explored for zinc and lead prior to 1952. As we continue to focus on further exploration for high-grade zinc, lead and copper within our large property, we will also sample for lithium and other critical metals in all pegmatitic material that we encounter. As a result, Slave Lake has a unique opportunity to have prospectivity for multiple ‘critical metal’ exploration targets.”
