Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 23, 2023) - Kuya Silver Corporation (CSE: KUYA) (OTCQB: KUYAF) (FSE: 6MR1) (the "Company" or "Kuya Silver") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 3,500+ m drill program at its wholly owned Silver Kings Project, located in the historical Cobalt silver mining camp in Northeastern Ontario. Drilling will be primarily focused on further delineation of the North Drummond mineralized vein cluster at Kerr Lake. Historically, the Kerr Lake area produced approximately 60 million ounces of silver.
Details on this North Drummond vein cluster prospect can be seen in Kuya Silver's January 9, 2023, news release.
David Lewis, Kuya Silver's Exploration Director, commented: "Kuya Silver drilled a new, mineralized vein cluster at Kerr Lake in 2021 and we have been excited to return ever since. In this new drill program, which has now started, we intend to test the distribution and density of mineralization at North Drummond which has already yielded drill intersections in excess of 2,000 g/t silver and 3% cobalt. We are specifically interested in testing the grade and density of veins nearer to surface, where grade has historically increased, and to establish the potential for additional high grade silver shoots."
Although drilling will be primarily focused on the North Drummond target area, two other target areas will be tested (Figure 1). The first is Campbell-Crawford, where silver-cobalt mineralization is known on surface and in a single adit, but with significant potential at depth below the workings. For example, underground drilling by Silver Century Explorations in the early 1980s intersected 1,300 oz/t (40,000 g/t) silver at depth and along trend from this area. The second is Mary Ann, which hosts comparable rock types and structural configurations to Kerr Lake and where recently discovered 1960s era drilling intersected several veins per drill hole. Silver grades up to 16 oz/t (500 g/t) were reported but cobalt, nickel, copper (which generally occur with the silver) were not.

The main target area is the North Drummond target, where a mineralized vein cluster was intersected (see Kuya Silver's January 9, 2023, news release for more details). Other drilling target areas include Campbell-Crawford and Mary Ann.
