Mineral exploration and development company Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) this morning issued an update on its exploration activities and upcoming drill testing at the Sully project. Notably, field programs have continued through May and early June with a specific focus on the company’s E3 target, including detailed gravity surveying, interpretation and mass modeling, prospecting and mapping, soil geochemistry sampling, drilling preparations and road/access preparations. Excel Geophysics recently completed interpretation and mass modeling of this new data, identifying a “well-defined, sizeable and discreet anomaly at this target location.” Brian Jones, principle of Excel Geophysics, noted E3’s attractiveness as a drilling target in the news release. “E3 has emerged as a strong geophysical target,” he stated. “Now it needs to be tested.” Per the update, a drill site at the E3 target has already been identified, and preparations are currently underway to mobilize FB Drilling of Cranbrook, British Columbia, in order to identify the source of the gravity anomalies.

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.
