Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)Canada Zinc Metals Corp. (the “Company”, TSX Venture Exchange: CZX) is pleased to announce that the Company will change its name from “Canada Zinc Metals Corp.” to “ZincX Resources Corp.” and will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the new name and the new stock symbol “ZNX” beginning Monday, May 7, 2018.

The Akie Zn-Pb-Ag Project

The 100% owned Akie property is situated within the Kechika Trough, the southernmost area of the regionally extensive Paleozoic Selwyn Basin and one of the most prolific sedimentary basins in the world for the occurrence of SEDEX zinc-lead-silver and stratiform barite deposits.

Drilling on the Akie property by the Company since 2005 has identified a significant body of baritic-zinc-lead SEDEX mineralization known as the Cardiac Creek deposit. The deposit is hosted by siliceous, carbonaceous, fine grained clastic rocks of the Middle to Late Devonian Gunsteel Formation.

With additional drilling completed in 2017, the Company has updated the estimate of mineral resources at Cardiac Creek, as follows:
