International Zeolite Update on British Columbia Zeolite Properties
- NI 43-101 on the Bromley Creek
- Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey on the Bromley Creek
- NI 43-101 on the Sun Group
Vancouver, British Columbia, International Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: IZ) (OTCQB: IZCFF) (FSE: ZEON) an international marketer and supplier of natural zeolite and zeolite products, is pleased to share an update on the work conducted on the Company’s Bromley Creek and Sun Group zeolite properties between May and September 2018.
The Company completed a new NI 43-101 on the Bromley Creek in September. International Zeolite’s 30.8 hectare mine lease quarry is located within the Company’s 1585 hectare property. The report states the measured resource estimate within the zeolite quarry area is adequate to meet current requirements. A work program is proposed on the Bromley Creek property to upgrade categories of resource blocks beyond the quarry area south of Bromley Creek through geological mapping, mechanized trenching and additional diamond drilling. The report was filed on SEDAR on September 25, 2018.
Ground-penetrating radar is a geophysical method using radar pulses to image the subsurface. It is a non-destructive method using electromagnetic radiation in the microwave band (UHF/VHF frequencies) of the radio spectrum and detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures. The Company conducted the GPR survey to determine the depth of overburden overlying the zeolite deposit on the Bromley Creek claims.
A NI 43-101 was completed on the Sun Group and the author of the report states “that the Property is a property of merit and further exploration is warranted.” A program of diamond core drilling is recommended to extend the zeolitized horizon to the north and east to confirm the existence of the zeolitized horizon and further define the 10-metre bedrock thickness contour in those directions to build a current resource by moving some of the historic resource to current resource status. The Company has maintained the 949 hectare Sun Group since 2004 and is preparing the property for future development. The report was filed on SEDAR on July 6, 2018.
Ray Paquette, CEO states, “Over the summer zeolite has been trucked from our Bromley Creek quarry to the processing facility in Kamloops for processing, packaging, shipping and inventory. The Company has seen an increase in demand from the agriculture sector for our current products for animal feed. Recently there has been a new demand for our zeolite in the absorbent and bulk road salt replacement markets and water filtration. International Zeolite continues to work with researchers in varied markets to develop new and innovative solutions and there will be results to share in the near future.”
