HALIFAX, NS, Aug. 20, 2020 /CNW/ - Zephyr Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:ZFR) (OTC:ZPHYF)  ("Zephyr" or the "Company")  announces that further to the news release of 8:50 AM ET, 20 August, 2020, the slower than anticipated progress on its drill program at El Plomo , Dawson-Green Mountain property, Colorado was due to rig break downs and slow drilling due to broken ground conditions.

Loren Komperdo, President and CEO, stated "This is the first deep drill hole in this area of the Dawson-Green Mountain property and as such drilling conditions are unpredictable. While the slow progress is unfortunate, we do not foresee any issue with achieving our ultimate targeted drill hole depth of between 457 m and 609 m (1,500 ft – 2,000 ft). The drill hole is currently at a depth of 263 m (862 ft)."
