Vancouver, BC, November 17, 2017 - Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V:Z; OTC Markets:ZZZOF; Frankfurt:RH33 - “Zinc One”) is pleased to report that an inferred resource estimate of 632,000 tonnes grading 7.6% Zinc, 0.74% Lead, 0.11% Cu, 19.75 g/t silver and 0.28 g/t gold (at a NSR US $75 cut/off) at its optioned Scotia Property, located in the Skeena Mining Division, British Columbia. The National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report (the “Technical Report”) disclosing the inferred resource estimate has been filed on www.sedar.com.
The inferred resource estimate is located in the Albere Zone of the Scotia Property. The data used for the inferred resource estimate was from thirty-nine drill holes totaling 4,144 meters conducted on the Scotia Property, of which seven holes drilled in 1960, seven holes drilled in 1980, four holes drilled in 1981, eleven holes drilled in 1984 and ten holes drilled in 1997. NSR cut-off values were calculated using metal prices of USD $1.00/lb Zinc, USD $2.75/lb Cu, USD $1,200/oz Au and USD $18/oz Ag. The NSR calculation assumes underground mining and includes estimated concentrate transportation, smelter treatment and refining charges. The grades for zinc, lead, copper, silver and gold were interpolated into each block by ordinary kriging.

About Zinc One Resources Inc.
Zinc One is focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of prospective and advanced zinc projects in mining-friendly jurisdictions. Zinc One’s key assets are the Bongará Mine and Charlotte-Bongará Zinc-Oxide Projects in north-central Peru. The Bongará Zinc-Oxide Mine Project was in production from 2007 to 2008, but shut down due to the global financial crisis and concurrent decrease in the zinc price. Past production included >20% zinc grades and recoveries over 90% from surface and near-surface zinc nonsulfide mineralization. High-grade nonsulfide zinc mineralization is known to outcrop between the mined area and the Charlotte-Bongará Zinc-Oxide Project, which is nearly six kilometres to the NNW and where past drilling intercepted various near-surface zones with high-grade zinc. The Company is managed by a proven team of exploration geologists and engineers who have previously constructed and operated successful mining operations.
