Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV:KTN) released the results from its Promontorio Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. The first eight holes of the program were drilled and significant results include 47 Meters of 62 gpt silver eqv including 17 meters of 94 gpt silver eqv (47 meters grading 31 gpt Silver and 1.32% Pb+Zn) and (17 Meters Grading 48 gpt Silver and 2.0% Pb+Zn).
As quoted in the press release:
- DH 121-12: 62 gpt silver Eqv over 47 meters including 94 gpt silver Eqv over 17 meters (47 meters grading 31 gpt Ag and 1.32% Pb+Zn including 17 meters grading 48 gpt Ag and 2.0 % Pb+Zn)
- DH 124-12: 152 gpt silver Eqv over 5 meters (grading 89 gpt Ag and 2.74% Pb+Zn), 80 gpt silver Eqv over 6 meters (36 gpt Ag and 1.89% Pb+Zn), 129 gpt Ag Eqv over 3 meters (74 gpt Ag and 2.4% Pb+Zn) within 20 meters of 36 gpt silver Eqv (19 gpt Ag and 0.73% Pb+Zn)
- DH 125-12: 119 gpt silver Eqv over 6 meters (106 gpt Ag and 0.59% Pb+Zn), 94 gpt silver Eqv over 14 meters including 199 gpt silver Eqv over 3 meters (129 gpt Ag and 3.06% Pb+Zn)
Kootenay Silver Inc. CEO, James McDonald said:
We are very pleased with results from step-out drilling. Mineralization in the Northeast Zone is widespread and continues to remain open to the north, northeast, east and south. DH 125 and 122 indicate potential to the north may be better than previously known. Wide intervals of altered diatreme facies (units) with mineralized intervals encountered over drilled lengths to 380 meters again confirm the system is very large and robust.
