Zazu Initiates Preliminary Economic Study

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 21, 2013) - Zazu Metals Corporation (TSX:ZAZ) ("Zazu") is pleased to announce the initiation of a NI 43-101 compliant Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on its zinc-lead-silver Lik Deposit in north west Alaska, approximately 22kms from Teck's Red Dog Mine. Zazu has retained JDS Energy and Mining, Inc. to complete the study.

The Lik deposit is a large tonnage, high grade zinc deposit with access to a state owned haul road and port. The zinc market will be faced with several large mine closures over the next five years. The Lik deposit is one of a small number of development properties with the potential to deliver into this expected supply shortfall.

Zazu completed extensive field programs and studies between 2007 and 2013, defining a significant resource and completing a suite of studies examining the property and infrastructure. Zazu will combine these results into the PEA, with a targeted completion date of Q1 2014.

Zazu is in the enviable position of an adequate treasury, low number of shares outstanding and no debt.
