Ron Zinc Project
Location: British Columbia
- 3,531 acres (1,429 Ha)
- Area has been the focus of recent staking activity (2018)
- Chip samples from 2005 showed 7.5% lead, 1.6% Zinc and 1.2 grams per tonne silver
The Ron Zinc Property is located in British Columbia and is approximately 3,531 acres (1,429 Ha) in size. The project area is adjacent to Selkirk Metals Corp’s (“Selkirk”) Robb zinc project. Selkirk is a subsidiary of Imperial Metals Corporation.
The area has been the focus of recent staking activity in October 2018 by Imperial Metals through their operating subsidiary. The host stratigraphy of the Ron zinc occurrence, which is located within the Ron Zinc Project, is similar to the Robb Lake deposit (BC MINFIL 094B 005), located about 7 km to the south, where lead-zinc mineralization in dolomite breccias is distributed along the western flank of a large, southeast plunging anticline made up of Muncho-McConnell and Stone formations dolomites.
The Ron Zinc showing appears to be on the eastern flank of the anticline and is situated very close to the depositional edge of the carbonate platform (see BC MINFILE 094B 012). In 2005, a representative chip sample (19753) from a mineralized (galena, sphalerite) crystallized dolomite breccia assayed 7.4 per cent lead, 1.6 per cent zinc and 1.2 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 28060 – see BC Minfile 094B 005).
Eastern Zinc is focused on generating MVT style lead-zinc targets within this project area.
