West Desert Option Agreement
InZinc entered into an option agreement dated April 15, 2021 (the "Option Agreement") with American West Metals Limited ("American West"), a private Australian company, pursuant to which InZinc granted to a wholly-owned subsidiary of American West an option ("Option") to earn a 100% interest in InZinc's West Desert project ("West Desert") located in Utah, USA. The Option Agreement is subject to, among other things, shareholder approval. The TSX Venture Exchange granted conditional approval of the option agreement subject to shareholder approval at an InZinc meeting of shareholders.
InZinc is focused on growth in zinc through exploration and expansion of the advanced stage West Desert project (100%) in Utah and exploration of the early-stage Indy Sedex project (100% option) in British Columbia. West Desert has a large underground resource open for expansion. The Indy Sedex project comprises near surface discoveries, large untested exploration targets and regional discovery potential. Indy is readily accessible by road from Prince George, the major hub for transportation and heavy industry in central British Columbia and is located 85 kms south of the Canadian National Railway. The West Desert option agreement (100% option to American West Metals, a private Australian company) will provide InZinc continuing leverage as American West Metals advances the West Desert project in Utah to prefeasibility. In addition to receiving significant staged cash payments and shareholdings in American West Metals over the next 24 months, InZinc will receive 50% of the revenue from the sale of indium mined from West Desert on a Net Smelter Return basis upon exercise of the Option.
