(Kootenay Silver, 3.Mar.2021) — Kootenay Silver Inc. announced that a 5,000-meter core drilling program has commenced at the Columba silver project, located in Chihuahua State, Mexico.
The Program will focus on step out and infill drilling on impressive results to date in the high-grade F-vein and its associated hanging wall vein, a new discovery blind to surface. Focus will then shift to expanding on numerous other high-grade results such as found in holes CDH 20-030 (415 gpt silver over 11.15 meters including 721 gpt silver over 4.07 meters) in the JZ area and CDH 20-082 (1,186 gpt silver over 4.6 meters) in the B Vein.
James McDonald, CEO and President Stated: “Ending on a high note last year with 1,186 gpt silver over 4.6 meters on the largely untested B Vein we are eager to continue testing the various high-grade areas established by our 2019 and 2020 programs.”
