Junior project developer Canadian Zinc (CZN) has inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Northwest Territories Power Corporation (NTPC) to assess options for supplying electricity to develop and operate the Prairie Creek base metals mine.
Under terms of the MoU, NTPC has agreed to work with Canadian Zinc to evaluate how it could supply the primary electrical energy source to the mine, how NTPC could install generating and connection facilities or other infrastructure assets to provide such electricity, and to study the integration of other energy alternatives, specifically that of liquefied natural gas (LNG), as part of the energy supply for the mine.
