Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) announces the successful amendment to the option agreement for 100% of the Columba High-Grade silver project in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The Company has successfully amended the schedule on the final payment for the property due in November 2022. The amended agreement splits the final November 2022 payment into a series of payments due in August, November, December 2022 and January, April, and May of 2023. Payments range from US$215,000 (August 2022 and May 2023) to US$480,000 (November 2022) and US$430,000 (December 2022, January, and April 2023).
