Kootenay Reports Columba Access Road and Surface...

Since acquiring Columba, the Company has undertaken a mapping and surface sampling program with silver grades of up to 693 gpt sampled on surface. This area includes a network of underground workings comprised of 4 shafts and 6 levels of drifts reported to measure over 1,000 meters in length. Historic* mine records indicate grades from these underground workings to range from 600 to 900 gpt silver with highlights of 1,900 gpt silver over 4 meters and 679 gpt silver along 133 meters of vein strike and 1.3 meters of vein width.

New Pacific Reports First Results from 2019 Drill...

The 2019 drilling program at Silver Sand commenced in late April and is expected continue throughout rest of the year. These first eight holes were part of the infill drilling program to bring drill hole density to approximately 25 metre by 25 metre spacing and to produce a mineral resource estimate in accordance with NI 43-101 at the end of 2019. These holes were approximately oriented at azimuths of 60 degrees and dips of -45 degrees. These first eight infill holes have intercepted significant silver mineralization similar to those reported from the 2018 drilling program, and adequately confirms the continuity of mineralization within the drilled extents.

Bolivian gov’t seeks a new deal with miners, says...

Although the state has ownership of the resource, it grants the company a lengthy concession period during which it can explore, build and operate a mine. In exchange, the company promises to undertake certain investments in stages throughout the project’s life, including rehabilitating the site when the mine closes. Once signed with Comibol, the contract is sent to Congress, where it would be approved as a law and finally promulgated by the president himself, giving the contract considerable legal weight. In January, Navarro signed the first such deal for an exploration project with Vancouver-based New Pacific Metals (TSXV: NUAG; US-OTC: NUPMF). The 45-year contract is due to receive legislative approval by mid-year.

Kootenay Reports Sampling Results and Discovery...

Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce sampling results from the Company’s most recent mapping and surface sampling program (the “Program”) conducted on outcropping veins at the Copalito Project (“Copalito” or “Property”) located in the State of Sinaloa, Mexico. Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald stated. “This is one of two projects we acquired over the last year with the potential for the discovery of high-grade vein hosted deposits. Vein widths, strike extents and grades encountered to date along with lack of any previous drilling indicate excellent potential for resource discovery. We will continue to advance Copalito to the drill stage while at the same time preparing for the first drill program on the Columba silver project the second of the two new projects.”
