About Nevada Zinc
The Company is focused on its wholly-owned Lone Mountain zinc project in central Nevada where it has been working since 2014 on a high-grade zinc carbonate-oxide deposit. To-date the Company has completed a pit constrained, high-grade, Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate of 3,257,000 tonnes at a grade of 7.57% Zn and 0.70% Pb (July 2018) and filed a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") for the production of zinc concentrate (June 2019). The PEA does not incorporate the potentially significant economic benefits of producing zinc sulfate products as a source of zinc in crop fertilizers and animal feed for the US agricultural and chemical sectors. This initiative is the focus of Nevada Zinc's ongoing multiphase pilot plant program. In July 2020, the Company entered into a Collaboration Agreement with Cameron Chemicals Inc., a leading U.S. producer and distributor of granular micronutrients to the agricultural, turf, and horticultural industries with manufacturing facilities in Washington, Virginia and Michigan. Under the terms of the Collaboration Agreement, Nevada Zinc and Cameron will work together to establish a range of zinc-based micronutrient products to be produced by the Company and marketed by Cameron through its distribution networks. In March 2021, Nevada Zinc commenced a multiphase pilot plant program for the production of zinc sulfate and to further de-risk and advance the Company's highly prospective Lone Mountain zinc project. In September 2021, pursuant to the pilot plant program, the Company was successful in producing a bench scale, high-grade zinc sulfate monohydrate sample (please refer to the Company's news release dated September 20, 2021).
