Following weeks of planning and preparation, ZincX Resources Corp. (TSXV: ZNX) this week announced that it has finally commenced the 2021 summer drill program on its flagship Akie property in BC.
This 2,000-metre diamond drilling program will focus on the Cardiac Creek deposit - ZincX’s primary asset - and build on the positive and robust results from the 2018 preliminary economic assessment (PEA).
The United States is back in the fold of countries pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and that is helping to drive demand for an assemblage of metals that a global push to decarbonize and electrify is expected to require.
Unsurprisingly, many of the base metals, which are invaluable to many sectors of the global economy, are found within Canada’s critical minerals list. Among them is zinc, an essential ingredient used to build our roads, bridges, buildings, and cars.
The Akie property is an advanced exploration project with drill indicated resources owned by Vancouver’s ZincX Resources Corp. (TSXV: ZNX).
