Kootenay Gold (CVE:KTN.V) said Wednesday that two diamond drills are now operating at the company's Promontorio silver project in Sonora, Mexico, with a third rig expected to begin drilling in the next two weeks.
In late May, the company initiated a 25,000 metre infill drill program, the largest to date on the property, to follow up on the last 10,000 metre campaign at Promontorio.
Highlights from the final holes of the 10,000 metre program included 234 metres of 146 g/t of silver equivalent in hole PC 53, including 70 metres of 236.3 g/t silver equivalent and 27 metres of 338.6 g/t of silver equivalent.
The current drill campaign will concentrate on step out and in-fill drilling off-setting the many drill intercepts found along a 1.0 kilometer long mineralized corridor that includes the Pit Resource, the Pit NE zone, the Northeast zone and the Southwest zone.
An updated NI 43-101 compliant resource report is expected to begin once the 25,000 metre drill program is concluded.
Kootenay Gold has mineral projects in the Sierra Madre Region of Mexico and in British Columbia, Canada.
