Assay Results Demonstrate Continuity and Thickness of Mineralization on the Blind Zone

- November 22nd, 2011

Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSXV:SSV,FWB:SEG) reported that assays results from core drilling continue to demonstrate both the continuity and thickness of mineralization on the Blind Zone, one of several silver-enriched, high-grade polymetallic targets at its Cerro Las Minitas project located in Durango State, Mexico. Positive exploration results have prompted an expansion of the current exploration program from 13,000 metres to 18,000 metres.

Positive exploration results have prompted an expansion of the current exploration program from 13,000 metres to 18,000 metres.

As quoted in the press release:

Highlights from the latest assay results include:

  • an 11.5 metre interval averaging 140g/t silver, 0.2% copper, 4.9% lead and 4.2% zinc which contains a 2.9 metre interval averaging 280g/t silver, 0.3% copper, 10.3% lead and 9.5% zinc from drill hole 11CLM-023, and
  • a 1.3 metre interval averaging 126g/t silver, 3.1% lead and 3.6% zinc from drill hole 11CLM-019

Drill holes 11CLM-023 and 11CLM-019 tested the down-dip projection of the Blind Zone by 220 metres and 160 metres respectively. The holes form part of a program of systematic drill offsets designed to delineate the full dimension of this previously undiscovered gravel covered target. The Blind zone is outboard of both the main intrusive stock and the area of historic mining and exploration and is the first of several buried targets identified on the property through IP geophysics to be drill tested.
