Fireweed Zinc Begins Work on Macmillan Pass Zinc Project and Launches New Website

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  FIREWEED ZINC LTD. (“Fireweed” or the “Company”) (TSXV:FWZ) is pleased to announce that work has begun on the Macmillan Pass Project and the Company has launched its new website at www.FireweedZinc.com.

Macmillan Pass Project

Work has begun on the Macmillan Pass zinc-lead-silver project. Plans are to complete a minimum $1.2 million exploration program on the project in 2017 with the aim of bringing the historical resources on both the Tom and Jason zinc-lead-silver deposits to current standards as well as explore for new discoveries within the project area (see Fireweed news release dated June 1, 2017 for details of the historic mineral resources).  This work will include re-sampling of some historical drill core (now in progress), surveying of drill hole locations and additional drilling (to begin soon) to both verify and expand the historic resources.  Following completion of an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate, Fireweed plans to undertake a Preliminary Economic Assessment in order to evaluate project economics.

Surface exploration work is also planned to delineate possible extensions to the known historic deposits as well as explore other areas of the project for new, undiscovered, areas of mineralization using modern exploration techniques.
