Prairie Creek Mine: High Grade Zinc-Lead Deposit
“NorZinc with its Prairie Creek Mine is one of the highest grade undeveloped zinc-lead deposits in the world. It has a 23 percent zinc equivalent to 8 million tons. It has substantial infrastructure in place, over 150 million U.S. of infrastructure and the relatively low capital development cost of about 220 million U.S.” – Don MacDonald, President & CEO of NorZinc Ltd.
NorZinc is a TSX-listed development company trading under the symbol “NZC”. The Company’s key
project is the 100%-owned Prairie Creek Project, an advanced-stage zinc-lead-silver property,
located in the Northwest Territories. The Company also owns an extensive land package in
Newfoundland that it is exploring for zinc-lead-copper-gold-silver deposits.
Prairie Creek Mine
NorZinc’s long-term aim is to bring the 100%-owned Prairie Creek Mine in the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories into production at the earliest possible date. The mine, which has a fascinating history, is a silver and base metals property already in the advanced stages of development, with substantial resources of high-grade silver, zinc, and lead. Exposures of mineralized vein structures, which overlie thicker stratabound mineralization, both of which are included in the present resource, are known to occur over a distance of 16 kilometres through the property.
