PROMONTORIO - Kootenay Hits 706 gpt Silver Eqv Over 16 Meters (370 Ag and 7.79 % Pb-Zn) as Promontorio Drilling Continues to Encounter High Grade Intercepts of Silver in Top Priority SW and NE Zones
Kootenay Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KTN.V) is pleased to announce assay results from an additional 20 drill holes from its 25,000 meter, ongoing, multi-phase, step out drill and resource definition program on its Promontorio Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico.
The Company reports the multi-rig diamond drilling program continues to yield exceptional results extending from the Pit Discovery Zone across the central 1km mineralized corridor.
The strike continuity of silver mineralization in the Southwest Zone connecting to the NI 43-101 Pit Resource has now been extended from 140 meters to 300 meters. In the Northeast Zone, which sits 700 meters outside of the current NI 43-101 Pit Resource, mineralization along strike is now 210 meters.

States Kootenay CEO James McDonald "We continue to consistently hit multiple intercepts of high-grade silver mineralization confirming and extending continuity of the Pit Resource and Southwest Zone. In the Northeast Zone we also continue to hit multiple high-grade silver zones as demonstrated by the 706 gpt Silver Equivalent in hole 88. These are exciting developments for the future prospects of Promontorio as we move toward an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate."
Highlights from the Northeast (NE) Zone include:
Highlights from the Southwest Zone include:
Highlights for the Pit NE Zone
DH 89 was drilled sub parallel to the hang wall of the Pit Resource encountering anomalous results. DH 103 was abandoned. DH 101 and 102 in the Southwest Zone up dip of DH 91 appear to be above or at the top edge of the zone. DH 90 and 98 returned no significant results and appear to be above the mineralization hit on section in DH 104 further down dip
