VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 17, 2021 / Blue Moon Metals Inc.(TSXV:MOON)(OTCQB:BMOOF) (the “Company“) is pleased to report the completion of the 2021 drill program at its property, the polymetallic Blue Moon project located in the United States containing zinc, silver, gold, and copper. The drill program consisted of 4 step-out holes totalling 5,873 feet (1,790 metres). The drill program tested a number of high impact targets including the potential for new massive sulphide lens to the south of the Blue Moon deposit. Drill core samples have been submitted to ALS Chemex in Reno, Nevada for assay.
The Company is also excited to report the United States Geological Survey (USGS) is adding zinc to its Critical Minerals List. In being added to the list, the USGS determined that zinc is critical to the well-being of the United States economy coupled with very few new domestic zinc development projects. The Blue Moon project is located in the United States and was a past zinc producer.
“We wish to thank our exploration team for completing the 2021 drill program and eagerly await the assay results. The 2021 program focused on exploring for new sulphide lens and we are particularly excited about hole-83 as this is appears to be a new sulphide lens separate from the Blue Moon deposit (see News Release dated November 8, 2021).” StatedPatrick McGrath, Chief Executive Officer “The addition of zinc to the USGS Critical Metals List also highlights the United States domestic zinc supply will be critical for a sustainable infrastructure plan and the Blue Moon project in the United States is in a great position to contribute to that plan.”
