Vancouver, Canada – April 28, 2017 - Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: Z; OTC: ZZZOF, Frankfurt: RH33) (“Zinc One”) and Forrester Metals Inc. (TSX-V: VEM.H) (“Forrester”) announce that Forrester has repaid its matured debt that was due on April 28, 2017 in the amount of $910,225, which amount includes the portion of the 12% convertible debentures that were not converted to shares under the Plan of Arrangement and two shareholder loans. The funds to repay these matured debts were advanced by Zinc One pursuant to the terms of a short term loan agreement to provide bridge funds in advance of closing of the Plan of Arrangement. The loan has a maturity date of August 31, 2017 with interest compounded at an annual rate of 2%. Zinc One and Forrester plan to close the Plan of Arrangement in early May once the $10,000,000 Zinc One private placement financing has closed and regulatory approvals have been received. The Plan of Arrangement between Forrester and Zinc One was overwhelmingly approved by Forrester shareholders and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice issued a final order approving the transaction (see press releases of April 24, 2017 and April 27, 2017).
