Commander claims Rebel zinc prospect

Commander Resources Ltd. Jan. 23 said it has staked claims covering the Rebel zinc-lead prospect in northeastern British Columbia.

The 1,620-hectare (4,000 acres) Rebel property is at the southern end of the Kechika Trough and about 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Canada Zinc Metals Corp.'s Akie project.

Rebel was first identified in 1979 when prospectors discovered a 40-meter horizon of massive pyrite beds and black shale with anomalous concentrations of zinc, lead, barite and silver.

Commander interprets the massive sulfide horizon as a distal expression of a sedimentary exhalative zinc-lead deposit.

Soil sampling indicates potential extensions to the main horizon, which remains undrilled.

Commander will undertake a program of additional soil and rock sampling in 2017.
