The Macmillan Pass Project, located in Canada’s mining-friendly Yukon Territory, is a 940 sq km land package host to large zinc-lead-silver deposits. The project is accessible via a 3 km road from the North Canol Road off the Robert Campbell Hwy in the southeast Yukon. The territorial government is highly supportive of the mining industry and the Yukon is one of Canada’s top jurisdictions for new mine developments.

Management’s vision is to create value for our shareholders by building Fireweed into a leading critical metals development and production company through the advancement and development of the Macmillan Pass Project.  The Company has an exceptional veteran management team with a strong track record of successful exploration, development, financing and operation.
