Southern Silver has completed nine drill holes totaling a 3,202 metre diamond drill program on the project. Potential for bulk-tonnage intrusion-related gold, polymetallic replacement (CRD)/skarn deposits, and copper-gold porphyries remains high with drilling having encountered strongly altered intrusive and sedimentary rocks, with anomalous metals, reflecting the large size of this mineral system. Mapping and sampling peripheral to the main altered area at the property has identified the shallow Stock Pond disseminated gold target. Permits have been received for additional drill testing of up to 14 holes which will expedite future exploration on the property.
