SLAVE LAKE ZINC CORP. Strategically Important Minerals

Vancouver, B.C., April 26, 2022: Slave Lake Zinc Corp. (CSE:SLZ)- As spring arrives in the Northwest Territories, recent developments with the federal and territorial governments have created excitement within our company.

Slave Lake Zinc is very much looking forward to the next several months, and the coming years, with the recognition that our primary exploration programs centered around zinc, with lead and copper, not to mention the precious metals, are being designated as “Strategically “important minerals by our Federal Government.

The” Fraser Institute” in their “Annual Survey of Mining Jurisdictions” has designated Canada as the number 2 best jurisdiction in the world for investment in the mining industry. The Northwest Territories was not specifically mentioned but as Mr. Wigham stated: “Our company’s interaction (Slave Lake Zinc Corp) with the decision makers and Indigenous communities in the N.W.T. has shown that it appears a new and exciting attitude has been brought forward with our mutually significant ‘‘Collaboration Agreement” with the Northwest Territory Metis Nation and our interactions with both the Territorial Government and the other local communities within the South Slave Region of the N.W.T.”  

With these developments and more substantial federal tax incentives the future appears to be very bright for Slave Lake Zinc and the companies O’Connor Lake Project. 

Slave Lake Zinc (“the Company”) has awarded incentive stock options to Directors, Officers and a company consultant to purchase a total of 2,650,000 shares of the Company’s treasury capital. These options allow the holder to purchase the shares at $0.15 per share for a period of two (2) years from the date of issue, subject to provisions of the Company stock option plan.

About Slave Lake Zinc

Slave Lake Zinc Corp. intends to develop the potential of its O’Connor Lake property, an historic zinc lead copper property located in the Northwest Territories of Canada.  The property is located south of Great Slave Lake and to the east of Osisko Metals’ Pine Point project.  The property was initially developed after the Second World War and subsequently abandoned in 1952 when the prices of zinc and lead collapsed post war.  Slave Lake Zinc Corp. believes that it is well positioned to advance this project and to expand significantly the historic potential of the property.  For more information, please visit
