KOOTENAY SILVER REPORTS HIGH GRADE INFILL DRILL INTERCEPTS AT LA NEGRA, MEXICO - HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE 1,161 GPT SILVER OVER 5.15 METRES

February 5, 2018 

Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN; OTC: KOOYF) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce the results of the final 10 drill holes from the 2017 drilling campaign completed by Pan American Silver Corp. (“Pan American Silver”) on the La Negra silver discovery. The definition drill program completed on La Negra is part of an option agreement between Kootenay and Pan American Silver that provides Kootenay with a series of work and cash commitments and a carried to production interest on La Negra and the Promontorio Mineral Belt located in Sonora State, Mexico.

Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states, “We are pleased with the excellent grades and continuity encountered in the La Negra mineralized breccia with the infill drilling conducted in 2017. We are looking forward to the 2018 exploration program which is entering the third year of our agreement with Pan American Silver and will focus on testing additional targets.”

It is anticipated that the 2018 program conducted by Pan American Silver will focus on developing drill targets outside the La Negra discovery. Drilling is currently underway on one such target a few kilometers north of La Negra. Additional mapping and sampling is required on other target areas prior to drilling.

Drill highlights from LN 17-86 to LN 17-95 include:

* LN-86-17: 1,625 gpt silver over 1.05 meters within 136 gpt silver over 50.65 meters and a separate interval of 515 gpt silver over 14.55 meters within 247 gpt silver over 49.15 meters
 
* LN-87-17: 1,161 gpt silver over 5.15 meters within 273 gpt silver over 59.20 meters
 
* LN-88-17: 309 gpt silver over10.30 meters within 93 gpt silver over 56.05 meters
 
* LN-89-17: 106 gpt silver over 11.05 meters within 60 gpt silver over 11.05 meters
 
* LN-90-17: 79 gpt silver over 5.10 meters and a separate interval of 434 gpt over 7.20 meters within 79 gpt silver over 95.85 meters

*LN-91-17: Four separate intervals of: 271 gpt silver over 3.85 meters; 74 gpt silver over 22.50 meters; 71 gpt silver over 1.95 meters; and 237 gpt silver over 2.35 meters.

A summary of the infill drilling within the mineralized zone is provided in the table below.

Note: all intervals are downhole. Holes are oriented approximately perpendicular to the mineralized trends, and downhole lengths may be slightly shorter than the stated interval.

Holes LN 86-17 to 91-17 and LN 05-17 are infill holes in the mineralized breccia with all intercepting positive results similar to previous drilling from the breccia. Holes LN 91 to 94 were step out holes ranging from 100 to 350 meters along strike. These holes did not intercept significant mineralization.

Pan American Silver began managing the exploration program in April 2016 and since that time has drilled approximately 10,900 metres in 56 holes, re-logged drill core, conducted geological mapping and re-interpretation, and completed 62 kilometers of magnetic ground surveys. Additionally, Pan American Silver has added additional concessions to the Promontorio mineral belt.

QA/QC

Samples were assayed by Inspectorate of Hermosillo, Mexico, using four acid digestion 35 element ICP analytical methods with fire assay for Au and Ag with atomic absorption finish and gravimetric finish, respectively. Pan American Silver has followed a Quality Assurance/Quality Control program comprised of the insertion of blank material and certified standard samples at a frequency of one each for every 20 samples. There is no known drilling, sampling, recovery, or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to in the table.
