Clear Lake is a SEDEX massive sulphide deposit occurring within the Devonian to Mississippian-aged Earn Group shale. SEDEX deposits often occur in clusters at a specific geological time horizon and are a major source of zinc and lead, accounting for more than 50% and 60% of the world’s reserves of these elements respectively. The Clear Lake Zn-Pb-Ag SEDEX deposit includes a historical inferred mineral resource of 7.65 Mt grading 7.65% Zn, 1.08% Pb, and 22 g/t Ag using a 4% Zn+Pb cut-off. This historical mineral resource estimate has not been verified by a Qualified Person, is not considered current, and should not be relied upon.
In 2008-2009, a previous operator carried out helicopter-borne VTEM and magnetic surveys, followed by a ground program of induced polarization and gravity surveys, in three target areas. Analysis by Condor Consulting Inc. and Aurora Geosciences Ltd. revealed coincident/complementary gravity, EM and IP anomalies, characterized as possible massive sulphide bodies with similarities to the Clear Lake deposit itself. Eastern Zinc plans to re-evaluate the historical database for the property and utilize this valuable information for future drill hole targeting.
