(PresseBox) - Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: Z; OTC Markets: ZZZOF; Frankfurt: RH33 ? ?Zinc One? or the ?Company?) has further extended the recently discovered high-grade zinc deposit to the west and northwest in the Mina Chica zone of the Bongar

Jim Walchuck, President and CEO of Zinc One commented, ?The results from the Mina Chica zone continue to impress and it has become apparent that Mina Chica will be an important part of the overall growth of the Bongar

Mina Chica Drill Results Highlights:

53 drill holes for 2,370.9 metres have been drilled from 18 platforms (see map in Figure 1.)


Results from 26 holes were reported previously (see news releases from April 9, April 26, and May 1, 2018)

Significant new intercepts include:

MCH18027 ? 14.8 metres of 28.4% zinc, from surface

MCH18035 ? 39.0 metres of 27.4% zinc, from 23.8 metres drill depth


True vertical thickness of 27.6 metres from a true vertical depth of 16.8 metres

Intercept is open to the west

MCH18031 and MCH18032 delimit the deposit in the northwest, near which MCH18030 delimits the deposit to the northeast (see map in Figure 1.)

Mineralization at Mina Chica includes zinc oxides, carbonates and silicates hosted by soils, highly-weathered carbonates, and fine- to coarse-grained dolomites.



Mina Chica is one of three known zones of high-grade, near-surface zinc-oxide mineralization along a 1.4 kilometre mineralized trend that is being tested by this drill program. have been reported. This program was recently completed and the drill rig is now drilling at Mina Grande Centro.

Geology and Discussion of Results

The zinc mineralization at Bongarosted primarily by soils, heavily-weathered fractured and vuggy dolomites, and fine- to coarse-grained dolomites.

Significant results, including drill-hole orientation and total depths for Mina Chica, can be found below in Table 1.

Sampling and Analytical Protocols

Zinc One follows a systematic and rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program overseen by Dr. Bill Williams, COO and Director of Zinc One.

The sample from each core run is placed in a 60-centimetre long, plastic core box that has five columns.<2 metres, are chosen. Each core box is photographed and then sampled with a spatula (soil and heavily-weathered rock) or cut with a core saw, 50% of which is placed in a sample bag and stored on site in a secure location. The Company independently inserts certified control standards, blanks, and duplicates, all of which comprise at least 20% of the sample batch, to monitor sample preparation and analytical
