Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce results from hole CC-17-28 drilled to test the extension of a large new mineralized zone recently discovered in the Venadas target area on its La Cigarra Silver project in Chihuahua State, Mexico.

The Company reports assays from hole CC-17-28 returned a series of good grading silver intercepts, extending the new discovery zone 140 meters northeast of original discovery hole CC-17-26.

The weighted average intervals are:

Hole CC-17-28

  • 168.64 gpt silver over 7.0 meters, within
  • 121.25 gpt silver over 12.0 meters and
  • 92.88 gpt silver over 24.20 meters

All intervals are core length as the strike, dip and shape of the zone and thus true widths are unknown at this time.

The strength and intensity of brecciation, veining and alteration observed in hole CC-17-28 is consistent with discovery hole CC-17-26, which bottomed in veining. Textures are indicative of a variant of an epithermal hydrothermal breccia complex. The new discovery zone is contained within the project’s Venadas target area 1000 meters south of La Cigarra’s established NI 43-101 resource.
