Southern Silver Exploration Identifies Polymetallic Mineralization at Cerro Las Minitas Project

Southern Silver Exploration has discovered large polymetallic mineralization at its Cerro Las Minitas project in Mexico, through offset drilling.

The company has 0.4 g/t gold, 214 g/t silver, 4.1% lead and 5.8% zinc over 5.0 m in the drill hole 11CLM-011, and 0.5% copper, 141 g/t silver, 5.0% lead and 7.1% zinc over 4.4 m in the hole 11CLM-012.

Southern Silver has drilled 50 m lateral offset holes to the southern and northern part of the 11CLM-008 hole’s early high-grade mineralization. It has cut 12.9% lead, 818 g/t silver and 10.9% zinc over 3.3 m. These three holes have numerous distinct intervals of mineralization. The buried mineralized zone has been expanded for more than 100 m of strike-length. The geophysical sign and the high-grade mineralization are open along a strike for up to a length of 400 m.

El Sol zone, which was not examined formerly, has been drilled by the deep mineralized intercepts of the hole 11CLM-011 and the zone is situated 150 m to the primary target’s northeast part and also shows further drilling prospective on the project.

Additionally, Southern Silver is conducting the phase II drill program at the Cerro Las Minitas project. It has completed six holes, totaling 1,675 m. The focus of the upcoming drill program will be on definite occurrences in the significant mining target regions that are noted from the latest surface IP geophysical program. Moreover, a further drill campaign has been performed along the down-dip and strike of the fresh drill holes.
