Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased that its exploration partner Aztec Minerals Corp. (TSXV: AZT) today announced the commencement of a diamond core drill program (the “Program”) on the Cervantes gold-copper porphyry property in Sonora State, Mexico.

The Program will consist of 14 to 17 holes totalling approximately 3,000 metres to test the gold oxide cap located in the California Zone, where 50m x 50m spaced soil sampling identified a 600m wide by 900m long gold anomaly averaging 0.44 grams per tonne (“gpt”).

Drilling will also test the gold-copper oxide mineralization found in the Jasper target, where Aztec recently identified 92.4m of 0.62 gpt gold and 0.52% copper in trenching (see Aztec’s news release dated October 3, 2017). During the Program, Aztec will drill one hole to approximately 500m depth to test one of the geophysical chargeability/resistivity anomalies identified by the induced polarization survey conducted last year for gold-copper sulfide mineralization.
