Southern Silver Exploration is a precious/base metal exploration company based in Vancouver, Canada and a member of the Manex Resource Group. The company’s growth strategy is to acquire, explore and develop high-quality properties in progressive jurisdictions within North America.
At over 150 sq. km in size, Southern Silver’s Cerro Las Minitas project, located in Durango State, features a large land position in the prolific Faja de Plata (Belt of Silver) of northern Mexico. Since acquisition, Southern has completed a comprehensive program involving surface exploration, airborne and ground geophysics followed by diamond drilling for 15,540 metres of coring in 62 holes. In-house modeling of two new deposits identified multiple distinct mineralized structures with an 820 metre cumulative strike-length, with depth projections of up to 300 metres below surface. Mineralization is open on strike and at depth. The recent option agreement with copper miner Freeport-McMoRan provides the stable funding, up to $25 million over ten years, required to advance the project toward additional discovery and development
In Arizona the company’s Dragoon project is a contiguous block of 12.8 sq. km that contains areas of exposed copper and molybdenum mineralization. Exploration on the Dragoon property is targeting a deeply buried porphyry Cu-Mo system of potentially similar size and grade as the Resolution deposit, a world-class porphyry Cu-Mo system.
The 6.9 sq. km Oro Project covers the majority of the historic Eureka Mining District in Grant County, New Mexico. The company has identified multiple prospective drill targets throughout a 2 kilometre long mineralized corridor largely untested by modern exploration. Oro is a gold, silver and base metal project with excellent potential for discovery.
Southern Silver is affiliated with Manex Resource Group, a private company comprised of an exceptional multi-disciplinary team of professionals, with specific expertise in all the areas of exploration, development and public company administration.
