Indicated mineral resource totaling 13.6 Mt averaging 3.2% ZnEq. (2.7% Zn, 0.6% Pb and 17.8 g/t Ag) containing 963 million pounds of ZnEq. and an Inferred mineral resource totaling 5.9 Mt averaging 3.1% ZnEq. (2.7% Zn, 0.5% Pb and 14.0 g/t Ag) containing 407 million pounds of ZnEq.


The Nash Creek Deposit is a base metal sulphide deposit hosted within the Early Devonian Dalhousie Group volcanics and volcaniclastic bedrock units. It is comprised of two main zones called the Hickey Zone, located to the north and the Hayes Zone, located to the south. Mineralization occurs at surface in the Hayes Zone and extends for approximately 2.1 km along strike, where mineralization consists of sub-horizontal mineralization which is interpreted as a series of vertically stacked horizons within the Hickey Zone. The majority of Zn+Pb+Ag mineral resources within both the Hayes and Hickey zones are located with 250m from surface.
