Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (CVE: SSV) said today that it has begun a 3,000 metre diamond drill program at its Cerro Las Minitas silver-lead-zinc project in Durango State, Mexico.

The Vancouver-based junior explorer has already completed a 1,100 line kilometre airborne magnetic survey on the property, identifying a number of targets that will be tested during the drill program.

The initial 3,000 metres will focus on four main target areas, and will look for both high-grade, silver-rich polymetallic and copper-gold skarn mineralization.

The 10,980 hectare Cerro project includes a 425 hectare area that has been the subject of previous small-scale mining by Noranda, and a larger unexplored gravel-covered area.

"Only a small portion of the property is exposed and the recent airborne and on-going surface geophysics have identified potentially significant unexplored gravel covered targets along some of the 25 kilometre strike-length," said president Lawrence Page.

Highlights of some Noranda drill results include an 11.45 metre interval grading 123g/t silver, 1.55% lead and 7.79% zinc from drill hole NGV-00-02; and a 1.41 metre interval grading 529g/t silver, 6.99% lead and 1.27% zinc from drill hole NGV-00-06.
