Zephyr Minerals Ltd.
Zephyr Minerals Ltd. is a gold and silver-lead-zinc exploration and development company. Zephyr continues to advance its 100% owned high grade Dawson-Green Mountain Property in Colorado, USA. After expanding its land package to 1,388 hectares (3,430 acres) the Company now controls a 12.2 kilometer (7.5 mile) mineralized trend which is prospective for Broken Hill-type silver-lead-zinc deposits and gold.
The Dawson-Green Mountain Property is one of only two known active exploration projects for Broken Hill Type (BHT) silver-lead-zinc deposits in North America. In addition, the property has the scale and the geological attributes to potentially host a million plus ounce gold deposit characterized by high grades and widths amenable to mechanized mining.
Dawson-Green Mountain Property, Colorado, USA
The eastern claims of Dawson-Green Mountain include an advanced gold project (the Dawson Gold Project) which along with the western claims at Green Mountain have excellent exploration potential to expand current gold resources – (133,500 Oz. gold @12.1 g/t uncapped, average width 3.5 – 4m; up to 15m). The central claims known as the El Plomo section host potential for a Broken Hill Type silver-lead-zinc discovery.
Zephyr's new geological model developed with the assistance of the Company's Technical Advisor Dr. Paul Spry, suggests that the genesis of the silver-lead-zinc mineralization at Dawson-Green Mountain is similar to the Broken Hill Type silver-lead-zinc deposits. This model was developed from the Broken Hill ore body in Australia. Broken Hill is reputed to be the largest high grade ore body ever discovered. It contained approximately 250 million tonnes of high grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization (approximately 18% combined Pb-Zn).

Dr. Paul Spry
Dr. Spry is professor of economic geology in the Department of Geological and Atmospheric Sciences, Iowa State University. Dr. Spry has coauthored more than 110 refereed papers in international journals and three books. He is an internationally recognized expert on the genesis of ore deposits and in particular Broken Hill-type Pb-Zn-Ag deposits. His work on the geology and geochemistry of the Broken Hill orebody, Australia, and similar metamorphosed ore deposits around the world is particularly relevant to Zephyr's Dawson-Green Mountain project in Colorado.
On September 10, 2019, Zephyr Minerals Ltd. has received preliminary data from the recently completed airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey performed by Balch Exploration Consulting Inc. (BECI) over the Dawson-Green Mountain property in Colorado, United States. A distinct 2.4-kilometre-long magnetic anomaly located immediately south of, and paralleling the mineralized trend (trend dips approximately 60 degrees south) has been identified on the El Plomo section of the property. This anomaly strengthens and widens from the west at approximately 100 nanoteslas (nT) to over 300 nT in the east. Broken Hill-type silver-lead-zinc (Ag-Pb-Zn) deposits can be very magnetic, so this anomaly is considered to be a high-priority exploration target for drill testing.
On June 28, 2019, Zephyr Minerals Ltd., as a result of a second review by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada, retracts the following statements made in its June 28, 2019, news release: "This discovery totalling 45 million tonnes of high-grade silver, lead and zinc mineralization is worth approximately $25-billion in today's dollars," and "A discovery like Cannington would be monetarily equivalent to discovering a 19-million-ounce gold deposit." These statements constitute restricted disclosure per National Instrument 43-101, 2.3 – restricted disclosure.
On June 28, 2019, Zephyr Minerals Ltd. announced that it has executed a service agreement with Balch Exploration Consulting Inc. for an airborne magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical survey over the Dawson-Green Mountain property in Colorado, United States. The geophysical survey will be flown on north-south lines spaced at 100 metres (328 feet).
Zephyr has granted 600,000 stock options to directors and officers of the company. The stock options are exercisable at a price of 31 cents per share for a term of five years expiring June 26, 2024.
On June 5, 2019, Zephyr Minerals Ltd. announced that it has closed a non-brokered private placement raising $600,570 through the issuance of 2,859,857 units at a price of 21 cents per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half warrant of the Company. Every two one-half common share purchase warrants of the Company entitles the subscriber to acquire one common share of the Company for $0.30 for a period of twelve months from the closing date.
Net proceeds from the finances raised will be used to advance the Dawson-Green Mountain Property in Colorado and for general working capital purposes.
