Kootenay Expands Mineralization
At Promontorio Silver/Gold Project
15,000 m of Drilling Confirms Widespread Mineralization
USHERING IN A NEW ERA OF MINING DEVELOPMENT
The Mineral Rich Sierra Madre Trend of Mexico
The Sierra Madre region of Mexico is responsible for discoveries
in excess of 520 million oz silver, and 15 million oz of gold. Prior
to 2001 the Sierra Madre Trend had no major producers, just
seven years later it now has six producing mines each containing
multi million oz reserves of silver, gold and base metals. In addition,
there is one project under construction and one more in
feasibility. Kootenay has drilled over 15,000 meters at Promontorio, results to date suggest
the possibility of a large scale mineral system similar to major deposits within this region.

SETTING THE STAGE FOR ADVANCED EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT
For Kootenay, the milestone acquisition of
the Promontorio Silver project represented
the culmination of over 2 years of intense
negotiating with former property holders
and the Mexican Ministry of Mines. Cash
and equity commitments exceeding
$2million secured the right to a 100%
registered and beneficial interest in the
highly sought after Promontorio project,
which consists of contiguous claims
covering a total area of approximately
Since acquiring the Promontorio, Kootenay
has completed an airborne geophysical survey,
ground geophysics, geological mapping, till
sampling, prospecting along cut grid lines,
3D IP Survey and more than 15,000 meters
of detailed drilling. Drill Results received to
date indicate wide spread mineralization in
Pit Discovery and the Dorotea Discovery
zones. Assays from surface sampling
conducted over the last 12 months have also
identified an additional 7 separate zones of
surface mineralization north of the Pit and

Mining in Mexico
Mexico is the world’s second largest silver
producer. It has been estimated that about
one third of the silver currently in
circulation was produced in Mexico.
According to a survey conducted by The
Fraser Institute, Mexico is among the top
20 most attractive regions in the world for
exploration and mining. A strong mining
culture, excellent geology, political stability
and favourable tax and permitting structures
all combine to create a major appeal for
international mining companies. Furthermore, non-Mexican companies can maintain
100% ownership of their properties and reap the full benefits of successful exploration
under foreign-ownership laws.

Step-out drilling 1 km to the east of the Pit
Discovery has encountered mineralization
to a depth of 650 Meters.
Mineralization at Dorotea Discovery
confirmed through Drill Results
The Dorotea Zone is known to contain
significant values of gold and silver as
demonstrated from surface samples and
drill results in 3 holes announced in
February 2009. Highlights include 6
meters grading 5.92 g/t Au and 167.20 g/t
Ag within 13.5m grading 2.78g/t Au and
77g/t Ag in KP-55 from a 3m depth.
The Dorotea Zone remains a high priority
target for trenching and additional drilling.
The Dorotea structure has good strike
potential and may project into the Pit
Discovery area 1600 meters to the southeast.
Dorotea also is a positive indication of
the discovery potential of the numerous
other mineral occurrences within the
Kootenay completes 2.6 Kms of Trenching
to Identify Additional Drill Targets
Kootenay recently completed 2.6 kms of
trenching to identify the next round of
drill targets at Promontorio. Twelve
mineralized zones were tested and sought
to confirm mapping & sampling assays of
up to 24.9 g/t gold and 269 g/t silver.
A total of eleven trenches were dug,
mapped and sampled across the 950m
strike length at the Dorotea Zone.
Assay results are pending.
The Promontorio contains a documented
silver/gold dominant polymetallic deposit.
Given the positive results on over 15,000
meters of drilling and 1,450 surface samples
at Promontorio in 2007/08 there is a high
probability that additional areas of
mineralization will be found.

Rosetta Stone Property (JV):
The 11,588 hectares is located in southeastern BC, Canada. The drill program will test two newly discovered
gold showings named the “Road” and “Rosetta Stone” showings. The road showing is 94 m long and
4 to 6 m wide and can be projected for another 450 meters along strike; and the Rosetta Stone showing is
exposed for 40 m of strike over 2 to 4 m wide before disappearing into overburden on both ends. Grab
samples from the Rosetta Stone showing up to 21.1 grams per tonne (gpt.), gold. Grab samples from the
Road showing ranged from background to a high of 17.0 gpt. gold.
Connor Creek (JV)
The property is located in southeastern BC, Canada. Exploration conducted over the past few years has
identified several clear gold and gold-copper-lead-zinc enriched zones as defined by geophysics, geologic
mapping, rock and soil anomalies and ~1,850 meters of drilling. Two main types of mineralization found
are; semi-massive sulfide vein with characteristics similar to the Rossland veins in nearby Rossland that
produced nearly 3.0 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.4 ounces per tonnes and disseminated
sulfides hosted in zones of shearing.
Jumping Josephine (JV)
The 18,429.5 hectare gold project is located in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia within a
mining district boasting historical production in excess of 9 million ounces of high-grade gold. Jumping
Josephine drilling (6,000 meters) has defined a gold bearing structure 900 m long by 12m width by 225m
depth. The structure is open at both ends and at depth, with strong indications that parallel structures are

Located in Sonora, Mexico. The project area contains several styles of precious-metals mineralization.
Previous sampling of quartz veins by Kootenay has yielded good gold and silver grades. A complete Data
Package was purchased from Teck/Cominco in 2009 which contained information from more than
US$1 million of exploration conducted in the 1990's. Based on drill intercepts contained within the Data
Package we see very clear, compelling Drill Targets.
