In the coming months, Southern Silver Exploration (TSXV: SSV; US-OTC: SSVFF) will drill up to 13,000 metres at its 265 sq. km Cerro Las Minitas (CLM) polymetallic silver project, 70 km northeast of Durango, Mexico. Drilling will begin soon with up to 3,000 metres at the newly staked CLM West claim group before transitioning to the main CLM area in June. The program has a US$3-million budget. A central monzonite intrusion acts as the heat pump for the mineralizing system. So far, Southern Silver has found four deposits in the main CLM area: Blind, El Sol, Las Victorias and Skarn Front. The Blind, El Sol and Las Victorias zones are near surface, dike replacement style deposits located west of the central monzonite intrusion. The Skarn Front zone is located in the halo of the central monzonite intrusion. Mineralization has been traced 1 km below surface, and the zone is open along strike and at depth. It’s the largest mineral deposit at CLM, comprising 70% of the resource. High grade mineralization forms near the Blind and El Sol intersections with the Skarn Front.
