– Vein and stockwork mineralization intersected
– Stratabound massive sulphides intercepted within 60 metres of surface
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Dec. 9, 2013 – Canadian Zinc Corporation (TSX:CZN)(OTCQB:CZICF) (“the Company” or “Canadian Zinc”) is pleased to report assay results from the 2013 diamond drill exploration program on the Company’s 100% owned Prairie Creek Mine Site property in the Northwest Territories.
Diamond Drill Exploration Program
The 2013 diamond drilling program at Prairie Creek completed 1,472 m of coring over 5 holes. Exploration focused on two areas: firstly, the multi-stacked electromagnetic (‘EM’) geophysical anomaly identified in 2012 approximately 900 m from the mill site, and, secondly, a small exploratory drill program immediately adjacent to the existing concentrator plant.
Geophysical Anomaly Drill Program
Two diamond drill holes, PC-13-220 and PC-13-222, collared about 320 m apart, which totaled 1,068 m of drilling tested a 900 m wide multi-channel EM anomaly identified in 2012. At the same time hole PC-13-220 was also designed to add further detail to the current National Instrument (“NI”) 43-101 mineral resource by intercepting projections of previously defined vein and stockwork mineralization within the upper parts of the hole.
Assay results for the 2013 Geophysical Anomaly Drill Program are as follows:
