Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSXV:SSV,FWB:SEG) reported a 10.8 metre interval averaging 70.0g/t silver and 1.6% lead and 2.2% zinc which includes a 1.4 metre interval averaging 217g/t silver and 6.2% lead and 8.7% zinc from drill hole 11CLM-023. The new assays results have increased the down-hole thickness of mineralized intervals in the previously reported hole 11CLM-023 and continue to demonstrate continuity of mineralization along strike to the northwest in the Blind Zone, on its Cerro Las Minitas project located in Durango State, Mexico.
As quoted in the press release:
Highlights from the latest assay results include:
- a 10.8 metre interval averaging 70.0g/t silver and 1.6% lead and 2.2% zinc which includes a 1.4 metre interval averaging 217g/t silver and 6.2% lead and 8.7% zinc from drill hole 11CLM-023,
- a 3.1 metre interval averaging 209g/t silver and 6.7% lead and 6.5% zinc from drill hole 11CLM-018 and,
- a 0.5 metre interval averaging 920g/t silver and 18.4% lead and 11.1% zinc from drill hole 11CLM-021.
The reported mineralized interval in hole CLM-023 is in addition to a previously reported 11.5 metre interval averaging 140g/t silver, 4.9% lead, and 4.1% zinc (see NR-20-11) that occurs deeper in the hole. Furthermore, new shoulder sampling of this previously reported mineralization has now extended the interval to a 25.3 metres thickness averaging 69.9g/t silver, 2.0% lead and 2.3% zinc. These two combined intervals represent 36 metres of strong polymetallic mineralization along the projection of the main target horizon of the Blind zone. All mineralization is reported as down-hole intervals.
