Field Program and Evaluation Underway at Walcott's Century South Silver Zinc Project
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 17, 2020) - Walcott Resources Ltd. (CSE: WAL) (FSE: WR2) (OTC Pink: WALRF) (the "Company" or "Walcott") announces that field work and evaluation has begun at its 60% owned Century South Silver Zinc Project ("CSSZP") in northern Queensland, Australia. The CSSZP consists of over 250 square kilometres of mineral tenure located in the prolific Mt. Isa Basin in north-west Queensland. Some six large scale silver-zinc-lead operations and several world class copper deposits with established mining infrastructure are found in this world renowned region.
In the current tenure, mineralisation is considered to be polymetallic in nature and often includes zinc (Zn), lead (Pb), silver (Ag) and copper (Cu). Priority work for the technical team includes outcrop examination of various siltstone, faults and quartzite occurrences within the tenure, as well as outcrop examination at north end of tenure owing to zinc and copper prospects located along strike to the north. Samples will be collected where mineralized outcrop is encountered. The area to the SW of the termite fault within the CSSZP is considered the primary target area for Century style Zn-Pb-Ag mineralisation.
The program at CSSZP follows directly on the heels of the Phase 1 exploration work recently completed at Walcott's Tyr project in northern New South Wales. The Tyr tenement hosts a large number of known mineral occurrences and historical mining for commodities; silver, tin, arsenic, lead, zinc and tungsten. These commodities will be the key focus for Walcott. The project area also contains known gold and silver occurrences.
Walcott has engaged Xplore Resources, geological consultants, of North Lakes, Queensland Australia to conduct the field program including stakeholder communications, review and verification of previously reported geological data in addition to the work detailed above.

David Thornley-Hall, CEO and Director
