Southern Silver Exploration Announces Commencement of Drilling at Cerras Las Minitas

Southern Silver Exploration Corp. ("Southern Silver") reports today that equipment has mobilized and drilling has commenced on the Cerro Las Minitas project located in Durango, Mexico.

The drill program, to be carried out by Freeport-McMoRan Exploration Corporation ("FMEC") which is operator of the project, will utilize two drill rigs to advance the project quickly through this initial discovery and evaluation stage.

Current plans are for a 3000 to 5000 metres core hole program that will test deeper offsets of known mineralized zones at the South Skarn, Blind Zone and Santo Nino targets and several geophysical and geochemical targets identified in recent surface exploration by FMEC. The current drill program is targeting a deep seated porphyry/skarn mineral system similar to the historic San Martin deposit (60Mt of 118g/t silver, 0.9% copper and 3.9% zinc) located about 100 kilometres to the south of the Cerro Las Minitas project. See news release NR-07-13, April 2, 2013 for further details of exploration to date and the proposed drilling program.
