Kootenay Silver (KTN) (the Company or Kootenay) is pleased to announce the results of 13 infill drill holes recently completed by Pan American Silver Corp. (Pan American Silver) on its La Negra silver discovery, contained within the Promontorio Mineral Belt in Sonora, Mexico.
The current definition drill program on La Negra is part of an option agreement between Kootenay and Pan American Silver that provides Kootenay with a series of work and cash commitments and a carried to production interest on La Negra.
Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states:
We are very pleased with Pan American’s work and the continued high-grade results achieved from the current infill drill program on La Negra. Assays continue to support the grades and widths encountered in previous drilling, further demonstrating the consistency and continuity of the high-grade silver mineralization contained within the resource.
We are excited and look forward to Pan American completing the remaining 1500 meters of the program and additional metallurgical work.
