VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 20, 2017) - Kootenay Zinc Corp. (the "Company") (CSE:ZNK)(CSE:ZNK.CN)(OTCQB:KTNNF)(FRANKFURT:KYH) is pleased to announce the following update to its Sully exploration project at Fort Steele, BC. Spring break-up conditions have dramatically improved and the project team has commenced several concurrent activities, including preparations for drilling hole SY17-12 at the E1S target. Excel Geophysics has completed an additional 180 gravity stations at the E1 anomaly since mobilizing on April 12, 2017, bringing station spacing there to roughly 20m x 20m. The new gravity work will assist in improved targeting of that anomaly but will also help in benchmarking the appropriate station spacing to develop equivalent mass models for the other anomalies at Sully. Once work at E1 is completed the geophysical crew will continue their field work over E2, E3 and E4 to provide definition of these recently identified and larger magnitude gravity anomalies. The project team reports it is now in receipt of an approved Notice of Work (NOW) permit for all planned drilling at Sully, including tests of the E2, E3 and E4 anomalies identified in late 2016. As the field season progresses and additional targeting information is acquired the team will evaluate access opportunities and priorities for subsequent drill sites such that drilling can continue seamlessly through the field season. FB Drilling has now mobilized to the site and is setting up at a new collar approximately 50m south of the SY17-10/11 site to test the E1S target described previously. Drilling will be undertaken using the same methodology and approach as previous holes, including: tools to minimize deviation of the hole and to provide oriented core for measurement of structural features. DDH SY17-12 will be oriented at a dip of -45 degrees toward east and the target is expected to be intersected between 200m and 300m. As described in previous news, drill targeting at E1S is intended to provide proof-of-concept, specifically that the gravity masses indicated are caused by massive sulphides. If successful, drilling will be expanded to test all of the EAST anomalies once their mass models are completed. The Sully project team is excited to test and determine the composition of these gravity masses. Kootenay Zinc Corp. is a mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia that is presently targeting the Sully Property. The Company is focused on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative ("SEDEX") deposits. The Sully Property comprises 1,375 hectares located approximately 30 kilometres east of Kimberley, B.C., and overlies rocks of similar age and origin as those which host the world-class Sullivan deposit, owned by Teck Resources Ltd. Sullivan was discovered in 1892, and is known to be one of the largest SEDEX deposits in the world. Over its 100-year lifetime, Sullivan produced approximately 150 million tonnes of ore, including approximately three hundred million ounces of silver, eight million tonnes of zinc and eight million tonnes of lead. The equivalent level of strata as at Sullivan and that formed on the margin of that same basin are present at the Sully Property. The Company cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Sully Property.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 11, 2017) - Kootenay Zinc Corp. (the "Company") (CSE:ZNK)(CSE:ZNK.CN)(OTCQB:KTNNF)(FRANKFURT:KYH) is pleased to announce that its Sully project team has now completed a detailed interpretation of recent gravity work focused on the Sully E1 anomaly. That work included equivalent mass modeling with particular emphasis on the southern portion of the anomaly (now named "E1S"). Importantly, the work highlights a distinct drill target located immediately south of recently completed holes SY16-10 and SY17-11. The geophysical interpretation has greatly benefited from increased and closer spaced gravity stationing that has provided better definition of the anomaly. The new modeling also shows how and where the previous drill holes missed the E1S target as we know it now. The new close spacing of gravity field stations at E1S made it possible to generate three dimensional equivalent mass models for the first time on any of the anomalies at Sully. The E1S model indicates the mass has a strike length of about 150 metres and that it is truncated at its north and south ends. It also shows that the target extends from a depth of approximately 70m to 270m below surface - but the target may well continue to depths below 270m. The truncated north and south ends of the E1S mass model are generally square, implying fault cut-offs, and that it was once part of a larger continuous mass. This is consistent with previous news describing observed complexity of drill core as a result of faulting (and folding) in the zone of interest. It should be noted that the E2, E3 and E4 gravity anomalies (described in previous news) each have greater magnitudes and larger footprints than E1, but were discovered more recently in the project history. It is hypothesized that these anomalies were once all connected and as such may be related to a Sullivan-like mineralized system that has been dissected by local faulting. New gravity surveying with tighter station spacing will be completed over these anomalies such that three-dimensional mass modeling can be completed on all of the EAST targets. Excel Geophysics will mobilize a field crew to the site within the coming days to commence this work. New drill targeting at E1S is intended to provide proof-of-concept, specifically that the gravity masses indicated are caused by massive sulphides. If successful, drilling will be expanded to test all of the EAST anomalies once their mass models are completed. The Sully project team is excited to test and determine the composition of these gravity masses. FB Drilling of Cranbrook, BC will mobilize to the site on or before April 19, 2017 and the Company will provide updates as the work progresses.

BURLINGTON, ON / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2017 / GTA Resources and Mining Inc. (TSX-V: GTA) (OTC PINK: GTARF) is pleased to provide an update on its recent exploration program at its wholly-owned Burnt Pond base metal VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphide) project in Newfoundland. GTA completed an 874 metre (m), three hole, drill program on its Burnt Pond Zinc-Silver project (the "Burnt Pond Project") located along strike from Teck Resources Ltd.'s past-producing Duck Pond copper-zinc mine in central Newfoundland. This first phase of drilling was directed at two of the numerous base metal VMS targets identified in the 2016 ground geophysics, litho-geochemistry and compilation program on the 114 claim project. This initial stage of drilling has extended the Burnt Pond base metal horizon (the "Burnt Pond Horizon") an additional 250 m to the northeast and had a best intersection of 0.7% zinc and 5.1 grams of silver per tonne ("g/t") over 4.2 m. A summary of the three holes includes: This initial drill program was successful in confirming the Burnt Pond Horizon is hosted by a thick sequence of highly altered felsic fragmented rocks, which is characteristic of the Duck Pond Mine, which had a pre-mining resource of 6 million tonnes grading approximately 3% Cu, 6% Zn, 60.0 g/t Ag and 0.09 g/t Au from two deposits. These deposits tend to be thick lenses with limited strike and plunge dimensions within the volcanic pile. Drilling to date on the Burnt Pond Project has identified a host stratigraphy, similar to the Duck Pond stratigraphy, with potential to host significant lenses of massive sulphide. Grade potential has been demonstrated at the Burnt Pond Project with historic, third party intersections up to 25.8% zinc, 24.0% lead, 0.8% copper, 791.1 g/t silver and 1.6 g/t gold over 0.37 m within a wider 12 m zone of semi-massive sulphides.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 24, 2017) - Kootenay Zinc Corp. (the "Company") (CSE:ZNK)(CSE:ZNK.CN) announces that its drilling contractor, FB Drilling of Cranbrook, B.C. has mobilized to the Sully Property and will re-commence the planned drilling program shortly. Drill hole SY17-11 will continue to focus on the E1 Zone of the Project's EAST Anomaly Area. This hole will test the current model of gravity data as a stratabound feature constrained by the most recent detailed structural and stratigraphic trends determined from drilling in late 2016. Mr. Brian Jones, principal of Excel Geophysics and advisor to the Company, stated: "Every additional gravity survey at Sully has confirmed the presence of significant size masses on the property; recent gravity modeling which evaluated the complex structural trends in the local area of E1 has also maintained the inferred size while more narrowly constraining location of the target." The Company will also be conducting new downhole EM and Mag survey trials on holes SY16-10 and SY17-11, to expand geophysical definition of the targets and perhaps assist in defining their geometry. The project team has also developed plans for subsequent drill holes on E1 and on the larger E3 anomaly after SY17-11 is completed.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - 28 fév. 2017) - Ressources Explor inc. (« Explor » ou la « Société ») (TSX CROISSANCE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANCFORT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) est heureuse d'annoncer l'acquisition de 6 claims miniers (16 unités de claims miniers) situés dans la division minière de Porcupine, district de Cochrane, dans le canton Ogden, en Ontario. Ces claims sont situés dans le canton Ogden au nord et à l'est de la propriété Ogden. La route 101 Ouest est située au nord de la propriété et procure un excellent accès à la ville de Timmins. Les claims ont été acquis en raison des résultats encourageants obtenus lors de l'exploration précédente d'Explor sur cette propriété. Ressources Explor inc. versera 10 000 $ CDN et émettra 500 000 actions ordinaires pour acquérir un intérêt de 100 % dans les claims additionnels de la propriété Ogden. Les vendeurs ont conservé une redevance NSR de 2 % dans la propriété. Cette acquisition est assujettie à l'approbation de la Bourse de croissance TSX. Avec cette acquisition, la propriété Ogden consiste maintenant en 21 claims miniers (115 unités de claim miniers) couvrant 1 844 hectares situés dans la division minière de Porcupine, district de Cochrane dans les cantons Ogden et Price. La propriété Ogden a été préalablement explorée par Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration et Exploration Knick. La majorité des sondages forés par les exploitants précédents avaient moins de 100 mètres de longueur. Historiquement, sur la propriété Ogden, le seul sondage qui a recoupé de la minéralisation significative est le forage au diamant réalisé par Tex-Sol Exploration en 1965 qui a retourné 6,0 g/t Au sur 9,1 m à une faible profondeur. Sur la propriété aurifère TPW, de la minéralisation à teneur plus élevée a été recoupée sous les 300 mètres d'une profondeur verticale, ce qui requiert des sondages de 500 à 600 mètres de longueur. Explor a réalisé un programme de forage sur la propriété Ogden avec les résultats encourageants suivants : Sondage #OG-16-02 a recoupé 2,06 g/t Au sur 1,50 mètres de 154,5 mètres à 156,0 mètres Sondage #OG-16-05 a recoupé 1,99 g/t Au sur 1,80 mètres de 438,0 mètres à 439,8 mètres. Le programme d'exploration préliminaire consistait en six sondages NQ pour un total de 3 648 mètres de forage au diamant. Les sondages avaient en moyenne 600 mètres de longueur. L'objectif préliminaire de ce programme de forage au diamant était de vérifier les cibles de polarisation induite (IP) et d'identifier si la propriété contenait de la géologie favorable pour héberger de la minéralisation aurifère. Le programme de forage au diamant a utilisé les cibles géophysiques identifiées par le programme de levés géophysiques au sol réalisé par Explor et les travaux de polarisation induite (IP) effectués par Imnet et Exploration Knick. Le programme a été une réussite dans le sens que toutes les cibles IP ont été recoupées. L'environnement géologique identifié est très similaire à celui de la propriété Timmins Porcupine West. Le type de roches recoupées incluait du porphyre de quart-feldspathique (PQF), des roches mafiques volcaniques et des zones de sulfures contenant de la minéralisation de pyrite à grain fin. Les dépôts les plus importants à Timmins sont associés dans l'espace à des unités de porphyres qui sont à proximité de la faille de Porcupine-Destor. Les dépôts semblent également être associés à des failles divergentes qui vont vers le nord de la faille de Porcupine-Destor à l'intérieur d'un corridor d'une faille divergente qui a été interprétée. Chris Dupont, ingénieur, est la personne qualifiée responsable de l'information contenue dans le présent communiqué de presse. Ressources Explor invite les investisseurs à visiter notre kiosque lors de la conférence suivante : Kiosque #2122 à la place des investisseurs située dans l'édifice sud du centre des congrès de Toronto Métro lors du PDAC 2017 se tenant du 5 au 8 mars 2017.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 28, 2017) - Explor Resources Inc. ("Explor" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 6 mining claims (16 mineral claim units) situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario. These claims are located in Ogden Township to the North and East of the Ogden Property. Highway 101 West is north of the property and provided excellent access to the city of Timmins. The claims were acquired because of encouraging results obtained in Explor's past exploration on this property. Explor Resources Inc. will pay CDN $10,000 and issue 500,000 common shares to acquire a 100% interest in the additional Ogden claims. The optionors have retained a 2% NSR in the property. This acquisition is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. With this acquisition, the Ogden property now consists of 21 mining claims (115 mineral claim units) covering 1,844 hectares situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario. The Ogden property has been previously explored by Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration and Knick Exploration. The majority of the holes drilled by previous operators were less than 100 meters in length. Historically on the Ogden Property, the only hole that hit significant mineralization was a diamond drill hole by Tex-Sol Exploration in 1965 which returned 6.0 g/t Au over 9.1 m at a shallow depth. On the TPW Gold Property significant mineralization was intersected below 300 meters of vertical depth requiring drill holes of 500 to 600 m in length. Explor has completed a drill program on the Ogden Property with the following encouraging results: Hole #OG-16-02 intersected 2.06 g/t Au over 1.50m from 154.5 to 156.0 meters Hole #OG-16-05 intersected 1.99 g/t Au over 1.80m from 438.0 to 439.8 meters. The preliminary exploration program conducted by Explor consisted of six NQ holes for a total of 3,648 meters of diamond drilling. The holes averaged 600 meters in length. The property was found to contained favourable geology to host gold mineralization. The diamond drill program used geophysical targets identified by Explor's ground geophysical surveys conducted by Explor and Knick Exploration. The program was successful in that all IP targets were intersected. The geological environment identified was similar to the Timmins Porcupine West Property. Rock type intersected included Quartz Feldspar Porphyry (QFP), Mafic Volcanics, and Sulfide zones containing fine grain pyrite mineralization. The most significant deposits in Timmins are spatially associated with porphyry units that are in proximity to the Porcupine Destor Fault. The deposits appear to be also associated with splay faults that trend off and to the North of the Porcupine Destor fault inside an interpreted splay fault corridor. Chris Dupont P.Eng is the qualified person responsible for the information contained in this release. Explor Resources invites investors to visit our booth at the following conference: Booth #2122 at the Investor Exchange of the PDAC 2017 located in the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Center from March 5 to March 8, 2017.
