Kootenay Silver Inc.

Kootenay Silver Inc. is actively developing mineral projects in the Sierra Madre region of Mexico. The company's La Negra prospect is a significant and exciting new high-grade silver discovery that offers exceptional potential to evolve into a substantial near-surface, open-pit resource. Kootenay's goal is to continue to fast-track development on La Negra through an aggressive drill program currently underway.

Expert Comments:

"Kootenay Silver Inc. is my favorite silver produer. Kootenay has two projects in Sonora, Mexico: Promontorio and La Negra. They are contained in a 25 kilometer (25km) by 15km mineralized corridor known as the Promontorio mineral belt. The Promontorio deposit itself is an absolute monster: 92 Moz of silver equivalent Measured and Indicated and another 24 Moz Inferred at 70 g/t. Kootenay doesn't quite yet understand the Promontorio structure, so it is engaged in a very detailed mapping and sampling program to find the high-grade areas. But this problem is not unusual with such structures. Consider AngloGold Ashanti's Cripple Creek gold mine in Colorado. Like Promontorio, it is a diatreme. Cripple Creek was mined for decades before it found a 100m pipe that contained 8 Moz gold. Promontorio is basically a 1.5km long mineralized area, so it requires a comprehensive program to delineate high-grade targets.

Companies need to get the best bang for their buck. For Kootenay, that means La Negra. It's 6km from Promontorio, and it's an exciting, new, pure silver discovery. Last year, Kootenay drilled 3,100m in 25 HQ diameter core holes at La Negra. It was hugely successful—a series of outstanding, high-grade drill intercepts from surface. . .I made a back-of-the-napkin calculation that La Negra phase 1 drilling revealed 20 Moz of pure silver—a conservative estimate on my part. The company is now drilling a phase 2, 30 hole, 3,000m program.

The initial phase 2 assays position La Negra as one of the richest, near-surface, pure silver plays in northwest Mexico in the past decade. The latest results, in my opinion, give an established silver producer the opportunity to fast track into production a low-cost, 4–5 Moz/year mine. Even if no one comes knocking, Kootenay has the team to advance the project itself. CEO Jim McDonald's track record includes Alamos Gold's Mulatos mine, and director Dick Whittington's includes Farallon Mining's G-9 mine." read more >

"Kootenay Silver Inc. announced the initial results of its phase 2 drilling campaign on its 100%-owned La Negra discovery on the Promontorio project. . .highlights from the current near-surface drilling include 138m grading 76 g/t Ag, 0.074 g/t Au and 0.19% Pb starting from surface including 23m of 115.95 g/t Ag, 0.034 g/t Au and 0.21% Pb starting at 51m depth. . .high-grade zones in the recent drilling include 8m of 963 g/t Ag and 26m of 185 g/t Ag."

"Kootenay Silver Inc. continues to return positive assay results from its La Negra target on its Promontorio land package. . .supporting our thesis that a shallow, considerably sized mineralized breccia exists. . .we remain bullish on the exploration potential at La Negra and believe it to be a legitimate discovery. . .we maintain our Buy rating and $0.50 per share target price for the company's stock and believe considerable upside exists through a potentially economic mining scenario at La Negra."

Rick Mills, Ahead of the Herd (3/14/15)
"Kootenay Silver Inc. offers one of the best ways to play the silver, gold and Dow ratio reversion to the mean, and also to play the growing trend in mergers and acquisitions within the precious metal space. . .the greatest leverage to a rising silver price is to own the shares of a very well run silver-focused junior with immense already existing resources, discovery upside and buyout potential."

Rick Mills, Ahead of the Herd (2/11/15)
"Kootenay Silver Inc.'s La Negra is going to be a much coveted deposit. . .it's a low-cost, near-surface, pure silver project that has built up an incredible resource very quickly, and there's much more to come in your authors opinion. Every miner in Mexico has this on their radar screen, which means we should as well."

"Kootenay Silver Inc. discovered and is developing the Promontorio project into an open-pit mine in Sonora, Mexico. The company recently drilled one of many prospects on its immense project and discovered another significant high-grade silver deposit, La Negra." read more >
