InZinc Mining Ltd. has the option to acquire a 100% interest in the Indy zinc project located in central British Columbia. It is located 100km southeast of the city of Prince George, British Columbia, the major hub for transportation and heavy industry in central British Columbia. Indy is readily accessible by road from Prince George and is located 85km south of the Canadian National Railway.
The first drill program in 2018 at Indy discovered shallow, high grade mineralization. Results from the 11-hole drill program (1271m drilled) identified a new zone of near surface mineralization called the B-9 zone, which remains open for further exploration.
New Unexplored Canadian Zinc Belt Emerging in Central BC
The geological characteristics of the B-9 zone are analogous to a distinctive geological setting, termed vent-proximal, within a sedimentary hosted exhalative (Sedex) type depositional environment. Sedex type zinc deposits occur as clusters on a district scale and only within specific ages of sedimentary rock formations. Many of the largest zinc mines in the world are Sedex type deposits and key geological features common to the large and well-known western Canadian Sedex zinc deposits are present at Indy.
Regional Scale Discovery Potential
Three large soil geochemical anomalies with an aggregate length of 3.2km occur on the property. Drilling at the B-9 zone (a 270m long portion of Anomaly B) has demonstrated that soil geochemistry is a cost-effective method of targeting sub-surface mineralization. Anomalies C and D remain to be tested by drilling.
