VANCOUVER, Jan. 22, 2015 - Kootenay Silver Inc. ($KTN:CA) ("Kootenay") is pleased to announce that camp upgrades and drill targets are being finalized and work crews are being mobilized for an upcoming Phase II drill program on its Promontorio La Negra Silver discovery in Sonora, Mexico. An announcement of the official start date of drilling will be forthcoming in the near future.
States Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald "We are very pleased to initiate plans for our Phase II drill program on La Negra. The upcoming program will focus on systematically building on the multiple high-grade silver results and widespread silver mineralization returned from previous surface sampling and Phase I drilling. The overall objective of the Phase II drill program will be to begin determining the overall size and extent of La Negra's contained silver with the goal of producing an inaugural NI 43-101 resource estimate on the project by mid year."
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).

Core is being detailed logged and sampled with half the core being bagged, tagged, catalogued, sealed and sent to an accredited assay lab for analysis. A quality control program including blanks, standards and replicates is being used similar to that used on the Promontorio drill program. Geotechnical data such as recovery, RQD and density are being recorded also. All drilling has been with HQ core and is being done by BD Drilling from Guadalajara, Mexico. Further Quality Assurance and Control procedures and details on assays procedures and laboratories used are disclosed on the Kootenay Silver Inc. website.
