VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InZinc Mining Ltd. (TSXV:IZN) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has closed the second tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for additional gross proceeds of $350,000.

“Completion of the financing is a positive sign of the support the Company and its projects have from its shareholders and the investment community,” stated Wayne Hubert, CEO of InZinc. “With a strong balance sheet, we are ready to move forward exploring and developing our zinc projects in 2018."

Pursuant to the second tranche of the Offering, the Company issued a total of 3,500,000 units (the "Units") (for a total of 34,980,000 Units in both tranches) at a price of $0.10 per Unit, each Unit consisting of one common share (a “Common Share”) of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”).

All securities issued in connection with the second tranche of the Offering are subject to a statutory four-month hold period expiring on April 21, 2018.

The Company paid finder’s fees in cash of $37,450 (for a total of $182,560 in both tranches) and issued common share purchase warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”) to purchase up to 388,500 Common Shares (for a total of 1,825,600 in both tranches), such Finder’s Warrants having the same terms as the Warrants.
