Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN, OTC: KOOYF) (the "Company" or "Kootenay") is pleased to announce additional positive drill results from the Aztec-Kootenay JV on the Cervantes Project located in Sonora, Mexico.

Results continue to intersect wide intervals of good grade gold mineralization with every hole in the California Zone to date hitting wide intervals of anomalous gold in mineralized quartz feldspar porphyry and hydrothermal breccias.

California Zone Drill Highlights

* CAL22-011
0.43 gpt Au over 132.2 meters
, including 1.29 gpt Au over 12.2 meters along the north central edge of the mineralized zone.
* CAL22-012
0.87 gpt Au over 152.4 meters, including 2.05 gpt Au over 33.5 meters
along the north central edge of the mineralized zone.
* CAL22-014
0.48 gpt Au over 54.9 meters
located at the northern edge of the eastern portion of the mineralized zone

To-date, every hole drilled at California has intersected near surface, oxidized gold mineralization with minor copper oxides. There are 8 more holes pending from the California zone including one pending from each of the Jasper and California North targets.

California 2022 RC Drill Program Plan Map:

Gold mineralization at the California zone now measures approximately 900 metres long by 250 to 500 metres wide, with demonstrated, continuous mineralization up to 265 metres depth vertically. The porphyry gold-copper mineralization is still open in all directions.

Eight holes are awaiting assay results and will be reported accordingly. The program of Reverse circulation (RC) drilling totaled 26 holes and 4,649 metres. Four main target areas were tested with objectives to better define the open pit, heap leach gold potential of the porphyry oxide cap at California, evaluate the potential for deeper copper-gold porphyry sulfide mineralization underlying the oxide cap, test for north and west extensions of the California mineralization at California North and Jasper, and assess the breccia potential of Purisima East.

All widths are drilled widths, not true widths. Gold mineralization appears to be widely distributed in disseminations, fractures and veinlets within the quartz-feldspar porphyry and related hydrothermal breccias.

Drill samples cuttings are collected every 5 feet (1.52m) from all drill holes. The samples are analyzed by Bureau Veritas for gold with a 30-gram sample size using the method FA430 followed by MA300. Over limits, when present, are analyzed by AR404 or FA550. All holes contain certified blanks, standards, and duplicates as part of the quality control program. The QA/QC has delivered excellent results to date good data integrity. The samples are shipped to and received by Bureau Veritas Minerals laboratory for the gold and multielement geochemical analysis and additional gold results will be received and reported in the next several weeks. Final multielement ICP results are expected to follow the release of the preliminary gold assays and are expected to be received during the second quarter 2022.

Cervantes Property Overview
Cervantes is a highly prospective porphyry gold-copper property located in southeastern Sonora state, Mexico and is held under a joint venture with Aztec Minerals (65%) and Kootenay Silver (35%) respectively. The project lies 160 km east of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico within the prolific Laramide porphyry copper belt approximately 265 km southeast of the Cananea porphyry copper-molybdenum mine (Grupo Mexico). Cervantes also lies along an east-west trending gold belt 60 km west of the Mulatos epithermal gold mine (Alamos Gold), 35 km northeast of the Osisko San Antonio gold mine, 45 km west of the La India mine (Agnico Eagle), and 40 km northwest of Santana gold deposit (Minera Alamos).
