Vancouver, British Columbia ─ October 19, 2022 ─ NorZinc Ltd. (TSX: NZC; OTCQB: NORZF) (the “Company” or “NorZinc”) is pleased to announce it has received approval for all Management Plans (“MPs”) from the territorial governing bodies, the Government of the Northwest Territories (“GNWT”) and the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (“MVLWB”), pertaining to the permit and license to construct the Pioneer Winter Road (“PWR”), which represents Phase 1 of the All-Season Access Road (“ASR”) at the Prairie Creek Project (“Prairie Creek” or the “Project”). This start of construction on GNWT lands represents the beginning of the first land access to the Project in 40 years.
The Company continues to work closely with Parks Canada (“Parks”) on the completion and final approval of the MPs as they relate to Parks’ land and expects to receive these by the end of this month. Although the Prairie Creek Project is not located on Parks’ land, a substantial portion of the access road will pass through the Nahanni National Park Reserve requiring final authorizations from Parks.
“We are very pleased to receive these approvals from the GNWT and MVLWB allowing us to start access road construction on territorial lands,” said Rohan Hazelton, President & CEO, NorZinc. “The Company remains committed to the responsible development and mining at Prairie Creek to deliver the significant economic and social benefits to the local communities who are our partners in this process.”
In November 2019, the Company received all authorizations constituting the full permit to operate both Phase 1 and 2 of the All-Season Access Road. Conditions of the permit to operate the access road include the approval of the MPs from all governing authorities including the MVLWB, GNWT and Parks.
NorZinc is a TSX-listed mine development Company trading under the symbol “NZC” and on the OTCQB under the symbol “NORZF”. NorZinc is focused on developing its 100%-owned high-grade zinc-silver-lead Prairie Creek Project, located in the Northwest Territories.
