Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSX.V: SSV) (“Southern Silver”) reported today further assay results from its 10,000 metre 2020-21 core drilling program nearing completion on the Cerro Las Minitas project, Durango State, Mexico. Results include strongly silver-enriched semi-massive to massive sulphide mineralization in the South Skarn target in two diamond drill holes which returned:
- a 15.6m down hole interval (10.4m est. TT) averaging 172g/t Ag, 3.8% Pb and 3.7% Zn (520g/t AgEq; 10.7% ZnEq) including a higher grade 0.9m interval (0.6m est. TT) grading 975g/t Ag, 21.2% Pb and 18.5% Zn (2,830/t AgEq; 58.5% ZnEq) from drill hole 20CLM-124.
- a 3.7m down hole interval (2.7m est. TT) averaging 511g/t Ag, 5.0% Pb and 3.7% Zn (907g/t AgEq; 18.7% ZnEq) from drill hole 20CLM-120;
