Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to report additional leach testing of oxide and sulfide silver mineralization (the “Phase II Program”) has begun on bulk samples from the Company’s La Cigarra silver deposit in Chihuahua State, Mexico, applying the proprietary SILVOX Technologies Inc. (“SILVOX”) process. The purpose of the Phase II Program is to determine if silver mineralization at La Cigarra is amenable to low cost heap leach processing using the SILVOX process, which could have a positive impact on potential capital requirements and operating costs. Previous metallurgical work was focused on silver recovery through production of a concentrate via conventional floatation. This work was very positive achieving recoveries up to 88% silver producing a high grade lead-silver concentrate that graded 34% lead and 23,000 gpt silver for every tonne of concentrate
