La Negra Silver Discovery
The La Negra Breccia discovery is situated approximately 6.5 kms north of Kootenay's flagship Promontorio Silver Resource in Sonora, Mexico and is contained within a 25 x 15 km mineralized corridor, the 'Promontorio Mineral Belt.' The upcoming Phase II drill program on La Negra follows a successful Phase I drill program, which returned significant and consistent intervals of high grade, widespread silver mineralization extending from surface to depth, confirming a substantial new silver discovery. (See news releases, 'Drill Results' Oct. 15, 2014, Nov. 26, 2014 and Dec 3, 2014 for more details). The Phase I drill program was led by a successful trenching and surface sampling program that confirmed extensive silver mineralization over a large 100 to 200 meters by 500 meters area on surface. (See news releases from May 28th and June 5th, 2014 for more details).
