Coral Zinc Project – 2017 Air and Ground Surveys and Drilling Program 

The Company intends to undertake a drilling program this summer on its CORAL Project in east central British Columbia to follow up on the 2016 exploration results targeting zinc and lead mineralization in a low-iron Mississippi-Valley-Type, carbonate rock geological environment analogous to that hosting the Pine Point deposits. The property has historic core drilling and trenching intersecting mineralized breccias containing zinc and lead values of up to 7.8% zinc. Minfocus has a current Mines Act Permit authorizing drilling at up to 6 drilling sites in 2017. The primary drilling target is the source of the large (600m x 300m) zinc geochemical anomaly (15-50 times background zinc levels) with outcropping zinc mineralized brecciated dolostone at its edge.

In addition to drilling, Minfocus intends to undertake air and ground geophysical work and a LIDAR survey, to enhance selection of drill targets during the 2017 program. For more details, see the Minfocus website at www.minfocus.com.
