I am going to make a solution of zinc chloride by mixing hydrochloric acid with an excess of zinc. In the experiment I want to do, I have to heat the zinc chloride. Will there be any HCl fumes?

How would zinc chloride make HCL fumes if there's no hydrogen in ZnCl2....
Zn + 2HCl --> ZnCl2 + H2, the hydrogen leaves as a gas....
