This new financing is with 17% premium to the closing price of 0.66CAD - who is so anxious to get into this story of the growing Chinese construction and auto market? Zinc is used in galvanized steel and galvanized steel is used in construction and by auto makers. China has overtaken U.S. as the largest auto market in the world last year. Now 12th 5-year plan announced that Electric Cars will become the strategic industry and China would like to become the largest producer of lithium batteries and Electric Cars in the world.
With its stake in TNR Gold with its Lithium, Rare Earths, Gold and Copper portfolio - Canada Zinc Metals is covering all bets on growth in China and its largest shareholder Chinese Zinc and Copper giant Tongling definitely knows what it means.
"We had a very interesting action in Canada Zinc Metals shares last couple of weeks. Company share price had a break out to the upside from a consolidation pattern on the news of Lundin Mining deal with Inmet Mining.
Dr. Zinc was an underdog compare to the party of Dr. Copper in 2010, but everything could changed very fast according to Salman Partners."

Canada Zinc Metals Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement
February 7, 2011
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – Canada Zinc Metals Corp. (TSX Venture Exchange: CZX) )(the “Company”) is pleased to announce a private placement of up to 4,650,000 Units at a price of $0.77 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $3,580,500. Each Unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one-half share purchase warrant of the Company. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.95 for a period of 18 months from closing.
A finder’s fee of 5% will be paid in cash on a portion of the private placement. The Company has agreed to allocate a portion of the offering to subscribers found by Secutor Capital Mangement Capital Corporation and Van Arbor Asset Management Ltd. The private placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
The proceeds are to be used for further exploration of the Akie SEDEX zinc-lead property and to explore the balance of the Company’s portfolio of mineral holdings (87,911 hectares), located within the highly prospective Kechika Trough SEDEX zinc-lead basin of northeastern British Columbia.
About the Akie Property
The Akie zinc-lead property is situated within the southern-most part (Kechika Trough) of the regionally extensive Paleozoic Selwyn Basin, one of the most prolific sedimentary basins in the world for the occurrence of SEDEX zinc-lead-silver and stratiform barite deposits.
Drilling on the Akie property by Inmet Mining Corporation during the period 1994 to 1996 and by Canada Zinc Metals since 2005 has identified a significant body of baritic-zinc-lead SEDEX mineralization (Cardiac Creek deposit). The deposit is hosted by variably siliceous, fine grained clastic rocks of the Middle to Late Devonian ‘Gunsteel’ formation. The Company has outlined a NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 23.6 million tonnes grading 7.6% zinc, 1.5% lead and 13.0 g/t silver (at a 5% zinc cut off grade).
Two similar deposits, Cirque and Cirque South Cirque, located some 20 km northwest of Akie and owned under a joint venture by Teck Resources and Korea Zinc, are also hosted by Gunsteel rocks and have a combined geologic inventory in excess of 50 million tonnes (not 43-101 compliant) grading approximately 10% combined zinc + lead.
In addition to the Akie property, Canada Zinc Metals Corp. controls a large contiguous group of claims which comprise the Kechika Regional project. These claims are underlain by geology identical to that on the Akie property (Cardiac Creek deposit) and Cirque. This project includes the 100% owned Mt. Alcock property, which has yielded a historic drill intercept of 8.8 metres grading 9.3% zinc+lead, numerous zinc-lead-barite occurrences, and several regional base metal anomalies.
