Kootenay Drills Multiple Silver Intercepts on Five Different Veins at Columba Silver Project, Mexico


Highlights Include 6.25 Meters of 244 gpt Silver with 373 gpt Silver over 1.5 meters

VANCOUVER, Nov. 19, 2019 /CNW/ - Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the "Company" or "Kootenay") is pleased to announce assay results from the next ten core drill holes testing five veins (I, D, E, J and Z) at the Columba high-grade silver project (the "Property") in Chihuahua State, Mexico.

Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states, "These results continue to show excellent resource potential at Columba with all holes reporting good silver mineralization. We are now seeing silver in widespread stockwork/breccia zones which we believe may coalesce into high grade 'feeder' veins a little deeper than tested. In the D Vein holes contain grades to 373 gpt silver even though we are almost 75 meters higher than where we see high grade in the nearby F Vein which indicates good potential for higher grades a little deeper than tested."

All widths are drilled widths. At this time, it is estimated true widths will range from 60 to 80% of drilled widths depending on dip of the vein and inclination of the hole. All silver composites rounded to the nearest whole number.

 

Expanded Drilling Discussion with Highlights:

CDH 19-019 to 19-020: Holes 19 and 20 tested the I Vein. Hole 19 had the vein faulted off and hole 20 was stopped just short of the vein yielding a good silver assay at the bottom of the hole. This hole will be deepened to test the mineralization at the bottom of the hole and the projection of the I Vein.

CDH 19-020 to 19-023: These holes tested the D and E Veins a few hundred meters south of the historically mined high grade in the F Vein. Up to 373 gpt silver was encountered even though the holes were 50 to 75 meters higher in elevation than high grades in the F Vein. Zonation from low grade to higher grades are typical of these types of vein systems and well documented at Columba. Thus, there is good potential for high grades a little deeper than tested so far. (see figure)

CDH 19-024 to 19-028: These holes were targeted on the J, Z and E Veins about 700 meters east of the historically mined F Vein. Most were drilled at depths a little above the level of high grades seen in the F Vein and so deeper follow-up drilling will be conducted. Very broad zones of low grade stock work and breccia up to 98 meters wide were hit with higher grades up to 356 gpt silver over 0.5meters, 115 gpt silver over 6.56 meters and 105 gpt silver over 7.6 meters. There is a strong increase in grade from less than 10 gpt at surface to values up to 356 gpt silver in only 100 meters of dip extent. These stock work zones have potential to coalesce into high grade feeder veins at depth. (see figure)

Drilling continues at the Property with a total of 37 holes completed to date.  Further drill assays and details from subsequent work will be reported once the Company has received and compiled the results.

Sampling and QA/QC at Columba

All technical information for the Columba exploration program is obtained and reported under a formal quality assurance and quality control ("QA/QC") program. Samples are taken from core cut in half with a diamond saw under the direction of qualified geologists and engineers. Samples are then labeled, placed in plastic bags, sealed and with interval and sample numbers recorded. Samples are delivered by the Company 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 reported is HQ core and has been contracted to Globexplore Drilling from Hermosillo, Mexico.
