VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RedZone Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: REZ, Frankfurt: REZ, OTC: REZZF) (the “Company” or “RedZone”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding purchase agreement to acquire the Wells Vanadium Project. The Wells Vanadium Project consists of two mineral tenures which total 1,225 Ha and are located 20 kilometres east southeast of Barkerville, B.C. Access to the property is by 35 km of logging roads via Cunningham Creek.
Previous work by Cominco Ltd. analysed 44 rock samples, collected over a 2-kilometre by 1-kilometre area, for their vanadium content and reported in B.C. Assessment Report 15,366. Eleven samples were found to contain greater than 1,000 ppm vanadium and values ranged up to 1,852 ppm (0.33% V205). The mineralization is found in phosphatic black clastic sediments of the Black Stuart Formation. The results from previous programs were collected in the 1980’s prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101. There is no record of analytical standards or duplicates in the reviewed assessment report. The qualified person has not verified the scientific and technical information and data disclosed in the news release.
