Kootenay Gold Inc TSXV:KTN announced assays from its Promontorio Silver Project in Sonora State, Mexico. Highlights include 38.8 g/t silver and 0.55 g/t gold over 70.5 metres (including 58.6 g/t silver and 1.15 g/t gold over 24 metres), 14 g/t silver over 58.5 metres (including 39.3 g/t silver over 10.5 metres), 112 g/t silver over 3 metres, 108.8 g/t silver over 16.5 metres, and 149 g/t silver and 1.1 g/t gold over 10.5 metres.
CEO James McDonald stated, “Our goal from the outset of the current 10,000-metre drill program has been to expand silver mineralization outside of the existing 43-101 pit resource. We are very pleased and excited with results from the current 15 holes. Not only have we dramatically extended silver mineralization to the NE and SW of the Discovery Zone, we are achieving consistent grades and continuity within areas of widespread silver mineralization not yet calculated into the current 43-101 resource. Adding a second diamond drill rig will allow us to drill-test a host of existing holes at depth that bottomed out in mineralization, which is expected to play a major factor in further boosting the size of our growing silver resource at Promontorio.”
