Southern Silver Exploration Corp. is a precious metal exploration and development company
with a focus on the discovery of world-class mineral deposits in north-central Mexico and the
southern USA. Our specific emphasis is the Cerro Las Minitas silver-lead-zinc project located in
the heart of Mexico’s Faja de Plata, which hosts multiple world-class mineral deposits such as
Penasquito, San Martin, Naica, Los Gatos and Pitarrilla. We have assembled a team of highly
experienced technical, operational and transactional professionals to support our exploration
efforts in developing, along with our partner, Electrum Global Holdings L.P., the Cerro Las
Minitas project into a premier, high-grade, silver-lead-zinc mine.
The Cerro Las Minitas project as of January 8 th , 2018 contains an estimated Indicated Resource,
at a 175g/t AgEq cut-off, of 33.6Mozs silver and 319Mlbs of lead and 813Mlbs zinc (116.1Mozs
AgEq) and an estimated Inferred Resource of 20.7Mozs silver, 131Mlbs lead and 870Mlbs zinc
(92.7Mozs AgEq). (1)
A total of 108 drill holes for 49,600 metres have now been completed on the Cerro Las Minitas
project with exploration expenditures of approximately US$15.5 million equating to exploration
cost of $0.07 per AgEq ounce. A further US$3.0 million is budgeted for 2018 exploration.
Our property portfolio also includes the Oro porphyry copper-gold project located in southern
New Mexico, USA. The Oro property consists of patented land, State leases and BLM located
mineral claims which cover a highly prospective quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration zone,
interpreted to overlie an unexposed porphyry centre and distal sediment-hosted, oxide-gold
