TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nevada Zinc Corporation ("Nevada Zinc" or the "Company") (TSX-V:NZN) is pleased to announce the appointment of Duane Parnham as director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nevada Zinc.
President and CEO, Bruce Durham commented on the appointment, "I have known Duane for more than 20 years and over that time I have seen how his commitment and ability have had a significant impact on the success of the companies that he has been involved with at both a board and senior management level. Duane's proven history of developing mining projects in conjunction with his extensive capital markets experience will add considerable depth to our board and management team."
Mr. Parnham has a successful track-record of developing exploration companies from start-up to fully permitted projects with considerable resources and reserves. This experience includes working internationally with governments and landowners to identify high-impact and underdeveloped projects, and providing the capital and managerial resources necessary to create shareholder value. Mr. Parnham has founded and developed multiple resource focused companies, including Giyani Gold Corp, Forsys Metals Corp., UNX Energy Corp., Canoe Mining Ventures Corp., and Temex Resources Corp.

This project is developing into a significant zinc discovery at a time when large zinc mines are closing and there is a real shortage of good new discoveries. Additionally, the project is located in one of the world's top mining jurisdictions. My role as Chairman will allow Bruce and his team to focus on both technical and corporate matters as I assist in the marketing efforts for the Company."
The Company has granted Mr. Parnham options to purchase 600,000 shares under the Company's stock option plan at a price of $0.25 for a period of 5 years.
