Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSX-V: KTN) is pleased to announce the results of eight core holes from its 2018 drill program carried out on its 100% owned La Cigarra silver project, located in Chihuahua, Mexico. Drilling was distributed over several priority zones on the Property including the Las Carolinas, La Borracha and Nogalera zones with results returning a series of medium to high-grade silver intercepts in all areas, further supporting the expansion potential of the La Cigarra Resource.

Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states, “We are very excited by these results that further underscore the inherent potential for new discoveries and to substantially increase the size and scope of our established silver resource. In particular, drilling on Las Carolinas to the south of the deposit hit consistent grades and intervals of silver extending 100 meters on strike and 200 meters down dip. Drilling on the La Borracha Zone located contiguously north of the deposit further confirmed this target’s large bulk tonnage potential, which now extends a full 1,100 meters on strike from the resource boundary”

Sampling and QA/QC
All technical information for the La Cigarra exploration program is obtained and reported under a formal quality assurance and quality control program. Samples are taken from core cut in half with a diamond saw under the direction of qualified geologists. Samples are then labeled placed in plastic bags, sealed and with interval and sample numbers recorded. Samples are delivered by the Company via courier to ALS Minerals (“ALS”) in Chihuahua. The samples are dried, crushed and pulverized with the pulps being sent airfreight for analysis by ALS in Vancouver, B.C. Systematic assaying of standards, blanks and duplicates is performed for precision and accuracy. Analysis for silver, zinc, lead and copper and related trace elements was done by ICP four acid digestion, with gold analysis by 30-gram fire assay with an AA finish. All drilling will be with HQ or NQ core and has been contracted to BD Drilling from Guadalajara, Mexico.
