Mineral exploration and development company Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) today announced that its drilling contractor, FB Drilling Ltd., has mobilized to the E3 Target on its Sully Project and has commenced drilling. Ongoing exploration activities are focused on the discovery of sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) deposits, which serve as the most important source of a number of ores, including zinc, lead and barite. As previously reported, the E3 target at the 1,375-hectacre Sully Project located in British Columbia, Canada, features a promising gravity anomaly. This anomaly will be tested for the first time as part of these drilling efforts. Kootenay outlined its forward strategy in today’s news release. “Initially, two holes will assess the near surface (less than 300m deep) portions of the target to potentially identify, and provide proof of concept as to the source of what causes the gravity anomalies identified at Sully.”

About Kootenay Zinc Corp.
Kootenay Zinc Corp. is a mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia that is presently targeting the Sully Property. The Company is focused on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative (“SEDEX”) deposits. The Sully Property comprises 1,375 hectares located approximately 30 kilometres (18 miles) east of Kimberley, B.C., and overlies rocks of similar age and origin as those which host the world-class Sullivan deposit, owned by Teck Resources Ltd. Sullivan was discovered in 1892, and is known to be one of the largest SEDEX deposits in the world. Over its 100-year lifetime, Sullivan produced approximately 150 million tonnes of ore, including approximately three hundred million ounces of silver, eight million tonnes of zinc and eight million tonnes of lead. The equivalent level of strata as at Sullivan and that formed on the margin of that same basin are present at the Sully Property. The Company cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Sully Property.
