About Zephyr Minerals Ltd.
Zephyr is a Canadian based company focused on exploration for gold and
silver in the Americas. Zephyr's newly optioned Keezhik Gold Property
located in the Fort Hope area of Ontario, Canada, is situated within
the same greenstone belt that hosts the world-famous Red Lake gold mine
owned by Goldcorp Inc. The only hole drilled on the Keezhik Claims in
2010 contained several mineralized intersections including 1.5 metres
of 22.0 g/t gold. This hole was drilled on one of a series of soil
(humus) geochem anomalies which stretch for over 2km's along the
favourable geological contact zone. This points to excellent discovery
potential in this largely unexplored area.
