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.

Slave Lake Zinc Corp. believes that it is well positioned to advance this project and to expand significantly the historic potential of the property.
