Consolidated Zinc Ltd. – Sampling Defines New High Grade Area at Las Espadas West

Additional high-grade zinc and lead mineralisation has been identified from mapping and sampling of the La Espadas West area located in the north part of the mine;

Both Las Espadas East and West mineralisation are accessible via Level 5 workings;

29 rock chip channel samples were taken over 90m strike of massive and semimassive sphalerite and galena mineralisation;

High grade results returned values of 50.22%, 49.13% and 40.18% Zn+Pb combined along with 35.6g/t, 49.9g/t and 32.4g/t Ag, respectively.

Results provide new evidence that improved structural understanding of the deposit is resulting in the identification of additional mineralisation at Plomosas.
