Walcott hired consultants Xplore Resources, of North Lakes, Queensland, to conduct the field program, where the priority will be outcrop examination of various siltstone, faults and quartzite occurrences, as well as outcrop examination at north end of tenure owing to zinc and copper prospects located along strike to the north.
Walcott said the mineralization is considered to be polymetallic in nature and often includes zinc (Zn), lead (Pb), silver (Ag) and copper (Cu).
The program at CSSZP follows directly on the heels of the Phase 1 exploration work recently completed at Walcott's Tyr project in northern New South Wales.
British Columbia based Walcott is focused on the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in Canada and Australia
