VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 2, 2020 / Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (TSXV:MOON)(OTC PINK:BMOOF) (the 'Company') announces it has regained 100% ownership in the Blue Moon zinc-silver project in the western United States. The former joint venture partner, Platina Resource Ltd. ('Platina'), successfully drilled the BMZ 79 and BMZ 80 holes in late 2019 which greatly enhanced the project and further expanded the high grade mineralization.
Further details on the drill results can be found in the Company's press releases dated January 24, 2020 and February 3, 2020. Despite the very positive results, Platina was not able to fulfill the initial earn-in requirement of the joint venture agreement to drill 10,000 metres within the prescribed timeframe. As a result, the Company retains a 100% interest in the Blue Moon project.
'We wish to thank Platina for funding and executing a successful drill program and advancing the Blue Moon project. The results of BMZ 79 and BMZ 80 increase our confidence in the Blue Moon project and our renewed commitment to drill and develop the asset ourselves in 2021. The value of the project has also been enhanced by the recent increase in price for zinc, copper, gold and silver.' stated Patrick McGrath, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Moon Zinc.
Over the next two months, Blue Moon will complete planning in anticipation of an aggressive drill program to follow up on the positive results obtained in the Platina funded drilling.
