Vancouver, British Columbia: FIREWEED ZINC LTD. (“Fireweed” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FWZ) is pleased to announce receipt of a Class 4 Land Use Permit for the Macmillan Pass Zinc Project in Yukon, Canada. The Class 4 permit applies to the parts of the property covering the main deposits at Tom, Jason and End Zones. It replaces a Class 3 permit and allows a larger and more ambitious work program with up to a 150-person camp, larger and more extensive exploration programs, and sets out environmental, wildlife, infrastructure, reclamation and First Nations heritage requirements for ongoing work.
Fireweed CEO Brandon Macdonald stated “We are very pleased to have received the Class 4 permit through a well-defined procedure that included First Nations consultations. We are grateful to our partners in the Ross River Dena Council, the Liard First Nation and the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun for their review and feedback throughout this process. With this upgraded Class 4 permit we have a drill and permit ready project for larger and more ambitious work programs going into the future with clearly defined rules setting out our responsibilities on the project.”
