Toronto, October 30, 2017 – Adventus Zinc Corporation (“Adventus Zinc” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a general corporate update covering Ecuador, Ireland, Newfoundland and its ongoing zinc-related corporate development activities. The Company remains well financed into 2018 to execute on its strategies.
The transaction with Salazar Resources Ltd. (“Salazar”) announced on September 14, 2017 received all regulatory and shareholder approvals, with the effective date being October 5, 2017. Adventus Zinc funded the initial US$250,000 advance payment, and Salazar has executed a geophysical contract with MPX Geophysics Ltd., to complete a 2,400 line-kilometre, heli-borne, time-domain electromagnetic (TDEM) and magnetic survey over the approximately 22,000 ha Curipamba project. This geophysical survey is expected to be completed by mid November.
A drill program will be designed to begin in early 2018, as follow-up to the geophysical survey, targeting new volcanic massive sulphide and precious metals targets; as well as infill drilling at the El Domo deposit that will also provide material for metallurgical testing. Road upgrades, including a road expansion, to the El Domo deposit, are underway.
