Climate Change Has Now Become Personal for the North and South Slave and Slave Lake Zinc

Vancouver, British Columbia-(August 21, 2023) Slave Lake Zinc Corp. (the “Company”) (CSE: SLZ): As much as we want to get on the ground and advance our project, we support and sympathise with the efforts to contain the devastation that our friends are subjected to in the communities that we are associated with in the South Slave. 

Hay River, Fort Smith, and Yellowknife are integral to our partners and our ongoing advancement of our mutually beneficial project to combat the obvious climate change challenges that we all face. Thankfully at this point Fort Resolution has only been superficially affected by this regional catastrophe. We deeply hope that remains the case as the summer and this catastrophic fire season are not yet contained. 

Our focus is the development of a sustainable project that benefits all our partners and creates sustainable, environmentally friendly advances in climate friendly materials that will make all of our efforts more fulfilling and sustainable for the future. For our children and their children in kind. It has never been more apparent, I believe, to everyone how important projects like ours are if we are to combat the scourge of climate change and protect the planet going forward.  

Our company has many connections to the Northwest Territories, not just by location. Our hearts and hopes are with everyone affected by this trying time. 

Marci Cho 

Our hearts are with you!  

About Slave Lake Zinc

Slave Lake Zinc Corp. is a company that aims to unlock the potential of its O’Connor Lake property, a historic site rich in zinc, lead, and copper, situated in Canada’s Northwest Territories. This property, found to the south of the Great Slave Lake and east of the Pine Point project, was initially developed post-World War II. However, it was abandoned in 1952 due to the collapse of zinc and lead prices after the war. Slave Lake Zinc Corp. is confident in its abilities to progress this project and significantly enhance the historic potential of the property. More information is available at
