Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the “Company” or “Kootenay”) is pleased to announce that a whollyowned
subsidiary of Antofagasta Plc (LSE: ANTO), under an option agreement with the Company has informed
Kootenay that a budget has been approved for the drilling of 5 separate targets on Kootenay’s Silver Fox Property
located in south eastern British Columbia. An estimated 3,000 meter drill program is scheduled to commence on the
Silver Fox Property during Q3 2017.
The Silver Fox Property is comprised of over 21,000 hectares of mineral claims covering the northern extension of an
established copper-silver mineralized belt originating from Montana, where the 3 principal deposits either host or
produced over 522 million ounces of silver and 2.39 million tonnes of copper at grades ranging from1.7 to 2.0 ounce per
ton silver and 0.7 to 0.8 % copper. This mineralized trend is best known as the Western Montana Copper Belt where the
copper-silver deposits are hosted in Proterozoic aged sediments of the Revett or Creston Formations.
The Silver Fox Property covers approximately 35 kilometres of strike length of the prospective hosting stratigraphy in
Canada. Exploration and field work conducted over the past two seasons has identified five prospective areas hosting
copper and silver mineralization indicative of potential copper silver deposits similar to what occurs in the same
stratigraphy in Montana. The focus areas are identified as the Oke, Jake, Yahk Mountain, Gilnockie and Ward targets.
Under the terms of the joint venture agreement, Antofagasta has the option to earn up to an 80% interest in the
Silver Fox Property.
