Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 6, 2017) – Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSXV: SSV) (OTCQB: SSVFF) (FSE: SEG1) (“Southern Silver“)reported today that it has intersected the down-dip projection of two mineralized zones in the newly identified Las Victorias target located southeast of the known mineral deposits on the Cerro Las Minitas project, Durango State, Mexico. The mineral intercepts from drill hole 17CLM-105 are significant since:
- they confirm the extension of the Blind Zone and Skarn Front deposits to the southeast of their previously drilled extents; and
- they open a 500 metre strike-length of new target area for further drill testing.
Highlights from hole 17CLM-105 include:
- a 10.9m down hole interval (6.8m est. True Thickness) averaging 194g/t Ag, 0.8 g/t Au, 4.4% Pb and 2.0% Zn (480g/t AgEq; 13.6% ZnEq) starting at 356.9m downhole, including a higher grade 3.3m interval (2.0m est. TT) averaging 551g/t Ag, 0.8g/t Au, 11.9% Pb and 4.7% Zn (1208g/t AgEq; 34.1% ZnEq); and
- a 13.3m down hole interval (13.0m est. TT) averaging 105g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu, 0.5% Pb and 0.4% Zn (153g/t AgEq; 4.3% ZnEq) starting at 507.6m down hole, including a higher grade 2.5m interval (2.5m est. TT) averaging 318g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu, 1.4% Pb and 0.8% Zn (444g/t AgEq; 12.5% ZnEq).
