About Fireweed Metals Corp. (TSXV: FWZ; OTCQX: FWEDF; FSE:M0G)
Fireweed Metals is exploring and developing two of the world's largest and highest-grade critical metals projects: Macpass (zinc-lead-silver) in Canada's Yukon, and the adjacent Mactung (tungsten). With ongoing exploration success, Macpass is taking shape as a prospective multi-generational mining asset. Mactung is positioned to meet pressing needs for a reliable source of tungsten, potentially becoming the answer for western tungsten demand for decades. Fireweed's Gayna Project (zinc-lead-silver-gallium-germanium) in the Northwest Territories is highly prospective for Kipushi-style massive sulphide discoveries, adding exploration upside and optionality to the Company’s portfolio. Backed by robust funding and a top shareholder registry, Fireweed is poised to continue delivering on its projects, unlocking significant value for all stakeholders.
