Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) announces it has completed 7 holes along the Soledad Structure before the Christmas break. Drilling will recommence in January and results will be reported when received and compiled. This is the 18th hole of the current program with 11 of these holes drilled in to the Ram structure resulting in a new drill discovery. (See news release November 23, 2016)
Concurrent with the drill program, ongoing ground exploration has identified a new large gold target that is associated with a contact skarn zone representing a potentially significant gold target. The Company believes the newly identified zone, which trends east-west for up to 1000 meters, may be the extension of the Navidad target that includes an untested silver-lead anomaly approximately 500 meters east of the La Cigarra deposit.
