Southern Silver SSV Cerro Las Minitas

Southern Silver Exploration (SSV.V) has now published its long-awaited resource update and as we expected, the Cerro Las Minitas project now contains in excess of 200 million ounces silver-equivalent with 116 million ounces in the indicated category and almost 93 million ounces in the inferred resource category.

The average grade of the resource is pretty decent at 356 g/t silver-equivalent in the indicated category and 332 g/t in the inferred category. We now really have the impression Southern Silver is moving towards presenting Cerro Las Minitas as a base metal project as we believe this is the first time the company has also provided a zinc-equivalent grade and resource (3B pounds zinc-equivalent at an average grade of approximately 7.4%.
