The Seal Zinc Prospect is located at tidewater on Aston Bay and is being investigated as a potential direct-ship project. It is located 20 kilometres west of the Storm copper prospect and located along the same structural trend.

Historic drilling has confirmed strata-bound zinc and silver mineralization over 450m of strike length and has a true thickness that varies from 10m to approximately 25m. Mineralization remains open along strike and down dip. Highlights of the historical drilling include:


  • 18.8 meters (m) core length grading 10.58% zinc (Zn) and 28.7 g/t silver (Ag) starting from 51m depth.
  • 30.8m core length grading 5.11% Zn and 23.0 g/t Ag starting from 101m depth.

Management is focusing on advancing the Seal prospect to Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) level as quickly as possible. A 200 kilogram (kg) sample of mineralized surface rock was collected at Seal Zinc for the purposes of metallurgical testing in 2013.
