2021 Summer Programme Of 2,000m British Columbia
ZincX Resources Corp. (TSXV:ZNX) has engaged a drill contractor for the upcoming 2021 northern summer drill programme at the Akie Project in British Columbia..
Drilling services will be provided by Discovery Diamond Drilling Ltd which has 36 years of experience in the diamond drilling industry and provides a full range of diamond drilling services for mining and exploration companies.
CEO, Peeyush Varshney, said the company is pleased to have secured a drill considering the unprecedented demand for diamond drill services.
He said the company’s highest priority was to secure a capable drill and crew that could be scheduled for the planned spring start-up. The company has finalised contractual arrangements with the drill contractor and engaged all other key support services including helicopter and camp catering.
“2021 is shaping up to be a very busy market for the junior sector and we are pleased to be able to secure the key services we need to safely and successfully execute the planned drill programme at our Akie Project,” Mr Varshney said.”
We look forward to working closely with our largest shareholder Tongling Non-Ferrous Metals this upcoming season.”
The 2021 drill programme will consist of approximately 2,000m of drilling with a primary objective of acquiring mineralised drill core sample material for advanced metallurgical testing.
The holes will target specific areas of the deposit to provide material representative of the deposit across its strike and width. This material will be used to further investigate the metallurgical response of the mineralisation with a focus on enhancing the recoveries and boosting concentrate grades for both zinc and lead; using state-of-the-art metallurgical testing facility owned by Tongling Non-Ferrous Metals of China.
The company has scheduled a late May camp opening with drilling scheduled to commence the first week of June. The programme is expected to require six weeks to complete.
