KOOTENAY SILVER INTERCEPTS 1,050 GPT SILVER OVER 2.0 METERS WITHIN 667 GPT SILVER OVER 7.05 METERS WITH FINAL 2021 DRILL HOLES ON COLUMBA HIGH-GRADE SILVER PROJECT (TSXV: KTN; OTC: KOOYF)

James McDonald Kootenay's President and CEO states, "The B Vein is continuing to yield impressive grades and widths. These results are amongst the best on the Property and as such we view the B Vein as having excellent potential for the discovery of large, mineralized zones within the vein."
Gustavo Gallego, Kootenay's Chief Geologic Engineer commented, "The B vein system is very promising, like all the targets drilled to date in Columba, drilling has returned excellent values with very interesting widths. We have tested a little more than 200 meters in length of this system and up to 200 meters in depth with drilling. On the surface we did not find high values of silver, however important grades begin approximately 100 meters deep, which gives us confidence that almost the entire epithermal system is preserved from erosion. With the 1:500 scale mapping program we have managed to extend this area by up to 600 meters on strike with vein widths of up to 1 meter on the surface. We look forward to the phase 4 program to begin drilling to expand this entire zone."
