Minfocus Exploration Reports on Field Work Progress at Peregrine Zinc Project and Coral Zinc Project in British Columbia

Minfocus Exploration Reports on Field Work Progress at Peregrine Zinc Project and Coral Zinc Project in British Columbia

Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) - infocus Exploration Corp. (TSX-V: MFX) ("Minfocus" or the "Company") announces that field work is continuing at its two zinc properties in British Columbia.  At the Coral Zinc Project the airborne LiDAR survey was completed and at the Peregrine Zinc Project a further field program is planned before the end of October.


Peregrine Zinc Project – Further Field Program Planned for October


The Peregrine Zinc property in southeastern British Columbia was the focus of prospecting and a soil geochemical survey by Minfocus in July 2017.  During that work program the Minfocus’ exploration team relocated an historic showing and collected several grab samples from the zinc mineralized exposures in the blasted area with results as shown below:



Zinc %

Lead %

Iron %

Silver ppm






















They also located an historic, partially buried, adit surrounded by very rusty dolostone.  A sample of the sludge accumulated at the entrance to the adit yielded almost 1% zinc (9,420 ppm Zn) and 0.2% lead (1,970 ppm Pb).  A water sample collected from the adit also yielded a very high zinc value of 323 micrograms per litre. The team also soil sampled an area of 1,000 x 700 metres along the strike of the potential host carbonate mineralization and identified a strong soil anomaly along 650 metres of the favourable horizon.  The highest zinc soil geochemical values were over 3,000 parts per million (“ppm”) and were supported by a coincident lead anomaly. This anomaly is open to the west, towards the old adit.

Minfocus will undertake further field work later this month, including further soil sampling and prospecting of the area identified from the open-ended soil anomaly.


Coral Zinc Project – LiDAR Airborne Survey


The Company has been advised by the contractor that it has completed the 16 km2 LiDAR airborne survey over the portions of the Coral Zinc property where a large geochemical anomaly is located.  The data is being processed by the contractor to provide images and a report on the survey.  The LiDAR survey is expected to assist in identifying surface expressions of collapsed or karst structures in the areas with thick tree cover. These topographic collapse features may reflect the location of enriched zinc and lead mineralization associated with Mississippi Valley Type (“MVT”) zinc mineralization. 


Historic core drilling and trenching on the property has intersected mineralized breccias containing values of up to 7.8% zinc and up to 3.8% lead and a very large (600m x 300m) historic zinc soil geochemical anomaly exists with up to 6680 ppm zinc (15-50 times background zinc levels) adjacent to outcropping zinc mineralized brecciated dolostone.  The mineralization at CORAL has similarities to MVT deposits such as the Pine Point Mine in NWT, Canada.


Analyses were all undertaken by Activation Laboratories Ltd.  For more information on the Peregrine or Coral Zinc properties, the reader should visit the Company website at www.minfocus.com
