Southern Hemisphere Mining on track to deliver Llahuin copper Resource on drill results


Southern Hemisphere Mining (ASX: SUH; TSX-V: SH) has returned highly promising results from drilling at its Llahuin Copper Project in Chile, remaining on track for a maiden JORC Resource in the first Quarter of 2012.

Following the arrival of a second diamond drill rig and deepening of three previous reverse circulation drill holes results include:

- 133 metres at 0.44% copper from surface;
- 124 metres at 0.39% copper from 192 metres; and
- 294 metres at 0.30% copper from 232 metres , which included 82 metres at 0.39% copper.

Two further diamond drill holes are currently underway and geophysics (magnetic and IP) survey results have been received which are providing guidance to locate drill collars.

The drilling program at Llahuin continues to extend the mineralisation, which remains open at depth and along strike. Importantly, drilling continues to yield economic copper grades and has extended the porphyry footprint.

The results of the deeper holes provide encouragement to the company and the arrival of the second diamond drill rig will accelerate testing of the deeper mineralisation.

The JORC Resource is expected to lay the foundations for the commencement of a Scoping Study, also planned to commence during the first quarter of 2012.
