Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce the commencement of its 2018 drill program on its 100% owned La Cigarra silver project in the Parral Mining Camp, Chihuahua, Mexico.
The first phase of the 2018 program will consist up to 5,000 meters of drilling and will focus on three primary objectives, including:
- Drilling within the La Borracha Zone northwest of the La Cigarra silver deposit;
- Drill testing for continuity of high grade bearing structures such as the 104 “vein” (“104-Vein”) at the southern end of the resource; and
- The first drill test of the newly identified “Nogalera Gold Trend”.
A comprehensive second phase drill program will be determined following the assessment of the various targets and the results from the initial 5,000 meters of drilling.
