Columba silver drills multiple veins

Kootenay Silver announces assay results from the next ten core drill holes testing five at the Columba high-grade silver project in Chihuahua State, Mexico. Recent Highlights of the Continuing Drill Program says, overall 6.25 Meters of 244 gpt Silver with 373 gpt Silver over 1.5 meters is being intercepted.


Drilling not only confirmed intercepts of high-grade silver but also potential bulk-minable silver mineralization with significant exploration potential remaining along strike and depth on several veins.


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 stock work/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.
