Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSX.V:SSV) (“Southern Silver”) reported today that it continues to identify high-grade mineralization from the current core drilling program on the Cerro Las Minitas project, Durango State, Mexico. Recent drilling has identified two thick intervals of mineralization in hole 17CLM-101 opening up the potential for significant extensions to the Blind Zone and Skarn Front deposits to the southeast of their currently drill extents.  Highlights from hole 17CLM-101 include:

  • a 17.6m down hole interval (12.5m est. True Thickness) averaging 154g/t Ag, 2.0g/t Au, 3.2% Pb and 3.9% Zn (558g/t AgEq; 15.7% ZnEq) starting at 229.9m downhole, including a higher grade 4.2m interval (3.0m est. TT) averaging 329g/t Ag, 4.6g/t Au, 7.4% Pb and 7.3% Zn (1175g/t AgEq; 33.2% ZnEq); and  
  • a 10.1m down hole interval (9.2m est. TT) averaging 220g/t Ag, 0.3% Cu, 3.6% Pb and 5.4% Zn (574g/t AgEq; 16.2% ZnEq) starting at 462.5m down hole, including a higher grade 2.3m interval (2.1m est. TT) averaging 373g/t Ag, 0.9% Cu, 7.4% Pb and 10.3% Zn (1089g/t AgEq; 30.7% ZnEq).
