Kootenay Silver Provides Drilling Update on 3,000 Meter Program at La Cigarra Silver Project


Kootenay Silver Inc.  (TSX.V: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to report 6 additional core drill holes have been completed and submitted for assaying, with the core drill rig collared on the 7th hole within the La Soledad Zone, located approximately 1,000 meters south of the Company’s established La Cigarra silver resource in Chihuahua State, Mexico.

Drilling on La Soledad is part of a current 3,000 meter, multi-phase discovery and resource expansion program underway to assess and evaluate several high priority targets that have been identified proximal to the La Cigarra deposit with the potential to add near surface silver resources to the project. The Company drilled the first 11 holes of the program on La Cigarra’s adjoining RAM structure resulting in an entirely new silver discovery (see news release dated November 23, 2016), within a large structurally controlled anomalous silver trend measuring 3.8 kilometers in length. Combined with the 5 holes drilled on the La Soledad structure, the Company reports it has completed a total of 16 holes to date on the program.
