AZTEC MINERALS - KOOTENAY SILVER JOINT VENTURE COMMENCES 2021 EXPLORATION PROGRAM ON THE CERVANTES PORPHYRY GOLD-COPPER PROPERTY IN SONORA, MEXICO

Aztec Minerals Corp. and Kootenay Silver Inc. have commenced the 2021 exploration program on the Cervantes porphyry gold-copper property in Sonora, Mexico. The exploration program was recently approved by the management committee overseeing the Cervantes joint venture between Aztec Minerals (65 per cent) and Kootenay Silver (35 per cent).

As operator of the Cervantes joint venture, Aztec has mobilized a field crew to conduct a plus-500 soil sample program aimed at extending previous soil grids and covering targets with limited historic exploration. The soil sample grid will cover 518 hectares (5.18 square kilometres) with 100-metre by 100-metre spaced samples to extend coverage over the Estrella and California North targets to the western, northern and eastern limits of the property. The existing soil sample database of over 1,100 samples covers the California, Purisima east, Purisima west, Jasper and Jacobo targets. Detailed lithologic, alteration, structural mapping and rock chip sampling will proceed along with the soil sampling program.

Cervantes is a highly prospective porphyry gold-copper property located in southeastern Sonora state, Mexico. The project lies 160 kilometres east of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, within the prolific Laramide porphyry copper belt approximately 265 kilometres southeast of the Cananea porphyry copper-molybdenum mine (Grupo Mexico). Cervantes also lies along an east-west-trending gold belt 60 kilometres west of the Mulatos epithermal gold mine (Alamos Gold), 45 kilometres west of the La India mine (Agnico Eagle) and 40 kilometres northwest of Santana gold deposit (Minera Alamos).

All sampling will be conducted with strict quality assurance/quality control controls, standards and blanks. Samples will be delivered directly to Bureau Veritas Minerals in Hermosillo for analysis. Joey Wilkins, BSc, PGeo, is the qualified person and vice-president of exploration at Aztec Minerals who reviewed and approved the technical disclosures in this news release.
