Kootenay Gold Inc. (TSXV:KTN) reported assay results from its ongoing 25,000 meter, multi-phase drilling program on its Promontorio silver project in Sonora, Mexico.
As quoted in the press release:
Three diamond drill rigs are currently operating on Promontorio with two stepping out in a systematic manner outside of the Pit Resource to the Southwest and Northeast. The third rig is working on stepping out from PC 28 in the Northeast Zone, which measures 300 meters in strike length and sits 700 meters outside of and on strike to the Company’s current established 43-101 Pit Resource.
The current 25,000 meter in-fill drilling and resource definition program represents the single largest and most expansive drilling campaigns conducted by Kootenay on the Promontorio Silver project to date.
Upcoming drilling will continue to concentrate on step out and in-fill drilling off setting the numerous medium to high grade silver intercepts concentrated along a 1.0 kilometer long mineralized corridor that includes the Pit Resource, Pit NE zone, Northeast zone and Southwest zone.
Kootenay’s President and CEO, James McDonald stated:
“We are extremely pleased with current drill results. Step out drilling returned multiple intercepts of high-grade silver mineralization in the Northeast Zone, which sits 700 meters outside of and on strike to the Company’s established 43-101 Pit Resource. Equally critical to the current resource expansion program, hole DH 68 drilled in the Southwest expansion zone of the Pit Resource, returned widespread zones of medium to high-grade silver, showing excellent continuity of silver mineralization with the Pit Resource on strike and to depth, extending more than 50 meters outside the Pit Resource.”
