Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV:KTN) reported that drilling on the Promontorio Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico is set to begin Sept 12, 2013.
As quoted in the press release:
The Company will conduct a minimum of 5,000 meters of drilling in the current phase, as part of its ongoing, multi-phase, 2013 drill and resource expansion program on Promontorio. Core drilling will focus on a series of high-grade silver intercepts recently identified within a new breccia zone of silver mineralization situated between the Pit and NE Zones.
Kootenay Silver President and CEO James McDonald said:
upported by recent analysis of data from our ongoing work programs, the current phase of drilling has emerged as a much anticipated event for Promontorio. The newly identified high-grade silver zone, situated between the Pit and NE Zones, remains open, both peripheral to, and at depth, to the known calculated resource. Moreover, the new zone falls within the parameters of the Project’s recently modified, single optimized Pit model, offering potential to add substantial additional ounces to our current silver Eqv. resource and enhance the project’s overall economics.
