Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSX.V: SSV) (“Southern Silver”) reported today further assay results from its 10,000 metre 2020-21 core drilling program on the Cerro Las Minitas project, Durango State, Mexico. These early results from the Mina La Bocona target include a near surface interval of strongly gold-enriched oxidized mineralization and a deeper poly-metallic sulphide zone from hole 20CLM-125 which returned:
- a 28.5m down hole interval averaging 1.41g/t Au and 36g/t Ag (201g/t AgEq) including a higher grade 2.8m interval averaging 5.1g/t Au and 72g/t Ag (552 AgEq) starting at 23.8m down-hole; and
- a 6.1m down-hole interval (4.0m est. TT) averaging 421g/t Ag, 0.45g/t Au, 5.5% Pb and 1.9% Zn (704g/t AgEq; 17.9% ZnEq) including a higher grade 0.9m (0.6m est. TT) grading 1420g/t Ag, 0.64g/t Au, 16.8% Pb and 0.6% Zn (2012g/t AgEq; 51.0% ZnEq) starting at 221.8 metres down-hole.
