Kootenay Silver (TSXV:KTN) released results from another four holes of its current drilling program at the Columba Silver Project in Mexico.

Situated in the prolific Silver Belt region of Chihuahua, Mexico, the Columba High Grade Silver Project is a past-producing silver mine that is host to numerous classic epithermal high-grade veins measuring more than 10 kilometres of strike over widths of more than six metres.

In a news release, the Vancouver-based miner stated the program is now complete and totals 12 holes for a total of 3,052.8 metres designed to extend known mineralization on the “D Vein” target area at the project. The current program brings the project total to more than 30,000 metres drilled in 147 holes since 2019.

Work at Columba has identified multiple veins within the D-Vein trend, hole CDH-23-145 encountered the upper levels of the northeast trending E-Vein from 9.0 metres downhole and two mineralized zones interpreted as hangingwall vein.

CDH-23-145

  • 6 metres core-length averaging 435 grams per ton (gpt) silver, 0.1 per cent lead, and 0.2 per cent zinc from 215 metres downhole within a broad 22 metres of 174 gpt silver
    • including 3.0 metres of 544 gpt silver and 0.13 per cent lead and 0.2 per cent zinc from 217 metres downhole
    • 1.0 metre of 814 gpt silver, 0.24 gpt gold, 0.1 per cent lead, and 0.2 per cent zinc from 219 metres downhole

CDH-23-142

  • 121 metres core-length of 60 gpt silver and 0.1 per cent zinc from 206 metres downhole
    • including 0.5 metres of 369 gpt silver, 0.5 per cent lead and 1.0 per cent zinc from 269.5 metres downhole immediately following a 5-metre-wide dissolution void
    • 2.88 metres of 224 gpt silver, 0.2 per cent lead and 0.5 per cent zinc from 296.12 metres downhole

The current drilling program is designed to extend the D-Vein in preparation of a wider spaced follow-up program aimed to delineate a maiden resource expected late next year.
