VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FIREWEED ZINC LTD. (“Fireweed” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FWZ) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. James Scott to the Management Team as Senior Vice President Projects.

CEO Statement
“We extend a warm welcome to James as he enhances our strong Management Team,” said Brandon Macdonald, CEO. “Successfully moving a project toward production involves more than just impressive tonnes and grade such as we are fortunate to have at Macmillan Pass. Success also requires excellence in engineering, attention to good community and First Nations relations, good government relations, understanding of permitting regime and a host of other activities coordinated through a business plan that moves the project forward holistically and effectively. Our project has now grown to the point where it is one of the premier and largest undeveloped zinc-lead-silver projects in the world and requires increasing expertise to develop effectively and rapidly. The broad and deep experience James has in bringing large projects to successful conclusions in the past, and his extensive knowledge in advancing Yukon mining projects specifically, makes him uniquely and ideally qualified to oversee and coordinate our efforts going forward. We are very pleased he has agreed to join our team and we know he will be making important contributions to the future of the Company.”

Mr. Scott is a Professional Geologist with over eighteen years’ experience in mineral exploration and development, having worked with leading mining companies, junior exploration companies, and provincial and federal government surveys. Mr. Scott brings diverse experience in geology, studies, engineering, innovation, project management, and leadership in the advancement of projects from exploration through to acquisition and early development. For eight years Mr. Scott was the technical lead on Kaminak’s Coffee Project leading up to and following acquisition by Goldcorp Inc. for $520M.
