Slave Lake Zinc Identifies New Multiple Highly Prospective Structures Adjacent to Known Zones

By: Newsfile

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 28, 2021) - Slave Lake Zinc (CSE: SLZ) ("Slave Lake" or "the Company") has completed detailed analysis of aeromagnetic data for the O'Connor Lake Property main Shaft Zone area. The Company has now identified multiple sub parallel structures in the North West trending corridor hosting the previously developed Shaft Zone mineralization (number 1 and 2 veins).

Aurora Geosciences of Yellowknife, on behalf of Slave Lake, has completed a detailed analysis of the high resolution heli-magnetic survey flown at 50 meter line spacing over the O'Connor Lake Property by the Company earlier this spring. The geophysical analysis shows that the O'Connor historic shaft and the main zone mineralization are located on a prominent North West striking 3-D feature. In addition to the Shaft zone, similar additional prominent magnetic linear features are mapped which indicate the presence of other structures nearby. These additional sub-parallel structures lie in the same general structural trend as the known mineralization and demonstrate extent to depth.

Ritch Wigham, CEO of Slave Lake Zinc, commented, "We are pleased to have results from this recent geophysical analysis that extended our structural corridor and identified multiple highly prospective structures adjacent to our known zones. These new blind targets will be subject to modern exploration technology for the first time and help identify drill targets." Please click here to view Model 1 and Model 2

Previous Results

Previously the Company has undertaken prospecting, mapping and grid-controlled geophysical surveys which have now established an initial mineralized structure exceeding 1100 meters in length extending 700 meters south from the headframe area developed earlier. This continuous zone has been traced by coincident Magnetic and EM anomalies along a structure interpreted from air photo analysis. Samples taken by the Company from trenches 500-600 meters along the trend from the shaft zone returned assays of 20% plus combined zinc plus lead. These results (as reported on October 22, 2019) are consistent with earlier Shaft Zone results. The mineralized corridor remains open along strike and to depth.

About Slave Lake Zinc

Slave Lake Zinc Corp. intends to develop the potential of its O'Connor Lake property, an historic zinc lead copper property located in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The property is located south of Great Slave Lake and to the east of Osisko Metals' Pine Point project. The property was initially developed after the Second World War and subsequently abandoned in 1952 when the prices of zinc and lead collapsed post war. Slave Lake Zinc Corp. believes that it is well positioned to advance this project and to expand significantly the historic potential of the property. For more information please visit
