Santacruz Silver Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

“Although the production rate at the Rosario Mine decreased during the quarter due to some structural complexity and narrower veins at depth in the Rosario Mine, our mining costs were nonetheless in line with recent quarters. In addition, the mineralized material to be shipped from the Cinco Estrellas property to the Rosario mill facility contains higher gold grades relative to the Rosario Mine’s historical grades with the effect that gold will now represent a substantial revenue driver at the Rosario Mine,” said Arturo Préstamo, President and CEO. “The impairment charge against the San Felipe Project is the result of an internal analysis that identified the property as being a non-core asset at this time in light of the opportunity that exists at the Company’s recently established operating base in Zacatecas, Mexico.”

KOOTENAY ANNOUNCES NEW DRILL DISCOVERY PROXIMAL TO LA CIGARRA SILVER DEPOSIT; Multiple Intercepts of Silver Mineralization Confirmed Across 400-Meter Strike Length; Highlights Include 89.83 gpt Silver over 18.0 Meters; Including 190 gpt Silver over 3.0 Meters

Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states, “Results from the first 11 holes of the program confirm RAM is an entirely new silver discovery and development of this mineralized structure will remain a top priority for the Company. The strength and consistency of veining within the structure bodes well for the discovery of further silver resources at depth and along both strike directions. Drilling returned good continuity of silver grades across a 400-meter strike length and widespread silver mineralization was encountered in all but two of the eleven holes, confirming the structure’s large-scale potential. Moving forward, the close proximity of the RAM structure to our established La Cigarra silver resource offers excellent potential for future shared infrastructure and economies of scale, as we continue to develop RAM and advance our main La Cigarra deposit towards the economic stage.”
