Peachland – July 11, 2017 Verne Hogg, President and CEO of ZMM Canada Minerals Corp. stated that the Z-1 Zeolite Quarry operations have been suspended and the crews evacuated. The property is located three km northeast of Cache Creek. All mining and processing equipment is in the quarry. While the company is aware of no fires burning on the property itself, heavy smoke and closed roads have made continued operations unsafe and unworkable. Evacuation orders in the Cache Creek area are in place at this time. Operations will recommence once the bans have been lifted.
ZMM Canada Minerals Corp. extend heartfelt concern for all the residents of the area including contractors and everyone affected by these events. We will continue to closely monitor conditions and provide support where possible.
Signed by Verne Hogg, President and CEO
