Fireweed Zinc (FWZ) has mobilized field crews at its Macmillan Pass Property, in Yukon.

The first crews on site will open camp facilities and prepare for the upcoming exploration program.

Drilling and other field work at the 940-square-kilometre site is expected to begin in the coming weeks.

The Vancouver-based mining exploration and development company will focus exploration around the around the Boundary Zone and the newly discovered Boundary West Zone.

It will also evaluate continue evaluation of regional targets including Bog Zone, Volcanic Zone, and Eleven, potentially including drill testing.

Field exploration programs including geophysical and geochemical surveys, and geological mapping and prospecting will be carried out on newly defined targets.

“It is exciting to get boots on the ground to begin our 2021 exploration program. We have an ambitious program planned to drill the Boundary zones and to carry out a wide-ranging exploration program seeking new discoveries on large geochemical anomalies, and geological and geophysical targets, including targets on our new claims which cover the western extension of the Fertile Corridor. In the few short years we have worked the property, we have had great success and have advanced the project to become one of the largest undeveloped zinc resources in the world. We expect 2021 will be another huge step toward growing a truly world-class zinc district,” said Fireweed Zinc CEO Brandon Macdonald.

The 2021 drilling program will seek to expand and better define both the Boundary and Boundary West zones. Holes will include step-outs to grow the potential resources, infill where current drill spacing is insufficient to support a resource, and limited holes close to past drilling to help define variography in support of an eventual resource.

Fireweed Zinc is down 1.23 per cent, trading at C$0.80 at 2:43 pm ET.
