Kootenay Intercepts More High Grades on Columba...

Kootenay Silver Inc.(TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce assay results from four (4) additional holes drilled on the Columba high-grade silver vein system in Chihuahua State, Mexico.Drilling is ongoing with 16 holes completed to date of a planned first phase 25 to 30-hole program.

New Pacific Continues Reporting Wide Drill...

Since the release of assay results of second batch of 31 drill holes on August 6, 2019, the Company has received assay results of an additional 20 drill holes from Silver Sand Project which were drilled to infill the drill grid to a density of 25 metres by 25 metres to confirm continuity of mineralization in selected areas drilled in 2018. Holes were approximately oriented at azimuths of 60 degrees with dips of -45 degrees normal to the strike and dip of mineralized structures. All holes continuously intercept significant wide silver mineralization in fractures developed in bleached quartz sandstones. Drill hole DSS525006 intersected the mineralized zone of 165.5m @ 204g/t Ag including a bonanza grade subzone of 45.0m @ 641g/t Ag. The drill results indicate that high grade centres exist in broad mineralization.

New Pacific Reports High Recovery of Silver From...

New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSX-V: NUAG) (OTCQX: NUPMF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the final results of a preliminary metallurgical test work program for its Silver Sand Project. The Company is very pleased with the positive results achieved so far from the completed test work. The results suggest that the mineralized materials from the Silver Sand Project would be amenable to processing using conventional flotation or whole ore cyanidation at atmospheric pressure at large scale. This preliminary metallurgical program has demonstrated that good silver extraction rates are possible using these simple extraction methods and that further improvements and refinements should be possible in future programs after fine-tuning the various test parameters.

Very Long-Term Silver

Just for fun because I am a chart guy who all too often bores you (and me) to death with ratio and indicator charts and all too seldom makes charts just for the fun of it anymore… So this long-term silver chart is just for the fun of it. What do we have here?

Kootenay to Commence Drilling at Columba Silver...

Kootenay President and CEO, James McDonald stated: "We are excited to test the vein system to confirm the historically reported grades and widths. The first 12 holes of the drill program will be designed to test the F vein where underground development work extended to 200 meter depth and the historic mining occurred."

Kootenay Reports Columba Access Road and Surface...

Since acquiring Columba, the Company has undertaken a mapping and surface sampling program with silver grades of up to 693 gpt sampled on surface. This area includes a network of underground workings comprised of 4 shafts and 6 levels of drifts reported to measure over 1,000 meters in length. Historic* mine records indicate grades from these underground workings to range from 600 to 900 gpt silver with highlights of 1,900 gpt silver over 4 meters and 679 gpt silver along 133 meters of vein strike and 1.3 meters of vein width.
