KOOTENAY HITS MULTIPLE HIGH GRADE INTERCEPTS ON LA NEGRA INCLUDING 156 GPT SILVER OVER 200 METERS, 442 GPT SILVER OVER 50 METERS AND 1337 GPT SILVER OVER 6 METERS

November 26, 2014

Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KTN.V) (“Kootenay”) is pleased to announce results on 16 additional drill holes from its Phase I drill program on its new La Negra Breccia Silver Discovery, situated approximately 6.5 kilometers north of Kootenay's flagship Promontorio Silver Resource in Sonora, Mexico.

To date, a total of 25 holes have been drilled and completed in the inaugural discovery drill program on La Negra. Results from the final 2 holes of the program are pending and are expected to be released in the near future.

States Kootenay President and CEO, James McDonald “We are extremely pleased with assay results from the current 16 holes of the program. La Negra is rapidly evolving into an exciting new silver discovery that is ideally situated and continues to yield multiple high-grade results. The mineralization is outcropping on a hill top and drill results show both consistency of mineralization and demonstrated potential for continued high grades, as shown in holes such as LN 21-14 that returned 1337 gpt silver over 6 meters. Combined, these factors indicate strong potential for developing a significant low cost silver operation. ”

Highlights include:

  • 200 meters from surface of 156 gpt Silver in LN 21-14 including the bottom 50 meters grading 442 gpt Silver. This hole bottomed in 492 gpt over 17 meters.
  • 6 meters of 1337 gpt Silver in LN 21-14, the highest grade interval to date.
  • 34 meters from surface of 265 gpt Silver in LN 22-14 with 18 meters of 467 gpt Silver
  • 30 meters from surface of 250 gpt Silver in LN 23-14 with 13 meters of 459 gpt Silver
  • 33 meters from surface of 179 gpt Silver with 11 meters of 412 gpt Silver in LN 14-14.
  • 49 meters from 13 meter depth of 92 gpt Silver with 34 meters of 251 gpt Silver in LN 8-14.
  • 140 meters from surface of 61 gpt Silver with 47 meters of 79 gpt Silver and 8 meters of 355 gpt Silver in LN 13-14.

These results highlight the importance of the La Negra discovery and the potential for finding and developing additional high grades. Drilling has tested and encountered Breccia and stockwork mineralization along a strike length of 400 meters to vertical depths of over 190 meters. Due to faulting and possibly the nature of the breccia contact itself the width of the breccia body is undetermined at this time. Thus far minimum drilled widths are varying from about 60 to 100+ meters within a broader 200 by 500 meter area of breccia outcrop exposures.

The breccia is cut by two northwest trending faults across which the dip of the breccia changes from near vertical dips to moderate southerly dips. This is evidenced by holes LN 11, 12, 14, 18, 19 and 20, which were drilled through the breccia into the footwall or directly within the footwall thus missing the bulk of the breccia body. The last hole LN 25-14 (assays pending) drilled to the north confirms a southerly dip encountering 60 meters of breccia from surface followed by about 50 meters of stockwork.

Holes LN 15 to 18 were drilled at the western edge of the breccia and seem to define the western extent of the main breccia body. However outcropping breccia does occur about another 50 meters further west of these holes so a western extension or a separate breccia body is implied.

Breccia characteristics indicate the La Negra Breccia is a in the vent facies of a diatreme. Diatreme breccias have extensive depth potential in the order of 100’s of meters. The La Negra Breccia also appears to have a steep northeast plunge to the system.

Current Phase I Drill Program

Drilling in the Phase I program was conducted in widely spaced fences along 400 of 500 meters of La Negra’s length to provide information on the sub-surface grade, continuity and geometry of the mineralized Breccia system. Current holes were broadly spaced as single holes or fences of holes from the same platforms in 115 to 75 meter spacings along strike. Extensive zones of breccia and stockwork were encountered along the strike length and dips seem to vary from steep northerly dips to moderate southerly dips. The Phase I drill program included approximately 3100 meters of core drilling. A total of 25 HQ diameter core holes were drilled and completed.

La Negra Silver Discovery

The La Negra Beccia prospect is situated approx. 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 current Phase I drill program on La Negra follows a highly successful trenching and surface sampling program that confirmed widespread silver mineralization exists 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). Recently, each of the first seven holes of its current Phase I drill program on La Negra returned significant intervals and high grades of widespread silver mineralization extending from surface to depth, confirming a substantial new silver discovery. (See news release, ‘Drill Results’ Oct. 15, 2014 for more details)

QA/QC

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. Sample lengths are one meter in breccia or stockwork zones and 2 meters in other zones. 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.

The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed and verified by Kootenay's CEO, James McDonald, P.Geo (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. McDonald is a director of Kootenay.
