As you know, from time to time we like to introduce you to some new people and new companies within the mining sector. Well here's another interesting story for you and it has to deal with zinc, which is an industrial metal that we first started to take note of back in 2016.
Jim Walchuck has been in the mining industry since, quite literally, the day he was born. He's had great success in the sector and this latest venture looks quite compelling.
Zinc One Resources (symbol Z.VN in Canada and ZZZOF in the U.S.) is a Vancouver-based company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of prospective and advanced world class zinc projects. The company believes in the current and future fundamentals of the zinc supply and demand scenario and the continued growing demand for zinc in global industrial uses. If you also believe in the positive fundamentals for zinc, this is one you should research and consider.
