Southern Silver Closes First Tranche of Private Placement: Options Oro Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SSV)(FRANKFURT:SEG) ("Southern Silver") has closed the first tranche of its previously reported (NR-01-13; January 16, 2013) non-brokered private placement by issuing 8,002,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of $400,100. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share for a period of three years at an exercise price of $0.10 per share.

Securities issued pursuant to this tranche of the private placement, including common shares, share purchase warrants and finder's warrants issued as finder's fees, carry a legend restricting trading of the securities until June 1, 2013. The private placement and finder's fees are subject to regulatory approval. Net proceeds from the Offering will be utilized for exploration and property maintenance expenses incurred at the Dragoon and Oro projects in the southwestern USA and will be added to general working capital.

Oro Project

The company also announces that it has entered into an option agreement dated Jan. 14, 2013, with Desert Star Resources Ltd. ("Desert Star") which can earn up to a 70-per-cent interest in Southern Silver's copper and gold project (the Oro project), located in southwestern New Mexico, United States.

In accordance with the terms of the option agreement, Desert Star paid to Southern Silver $75,000 upon execution of the agreement. The option agreement provides that Desert Star can earn an initial undivided 51-per-cent interest in the Oro project by making an additional cash payment of $150,000 by Aug. 1, 2013, and, over a period of 42 months after approval of the option agreement by the TSX Venture Exchange, incurring exploration expenditures totaling $3-million and issuing one million common shares of Desert Star to Southern Silver. Desert Star also has the option to earn an additional 19-per-cent undivided interest in the Oro project by incurring a further $3-million in exploration expenditures and completing a preliminary economic assessment, on or before the date that is 66 months after exchange approval. If exchange approval is not obtained by March 15, 2013, either party may terminate the option agreement, in which case Southern Silver will refund the $75,000 paid by Desert Star on execution of the option agreement.

About the Oro Property

The Oro project comprises a contiguous block of federal, state and private land totaling 17.2 square kilometres in the historic Eureka mining district in Grant County, New Mexico and is located approximately 40 kilometres southwest of the Silver City porphyry copper district. The property consists of 157 unpatented lode claims and a relatively large group of private mineral and surface patents and two parcels of New Mexico State Land which are critical to the further evaluation of the Oro property and which had previously hampered exploration due to fragmented land holdings in the district.

Mining primarily occurred in the Eureka District during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but a small amount of production was reported into the 1950's. Production has been estimated at 2.9 million lbs Pb, 1.7 million lbs Zn, 500,000 lbs Cu, 450,000 ounces Ag, and 5,000 ounces Au. In addition to widespread precious- and base-metal mineralization, favorable features of the Oro property include: prospective carbonate host rocks, low- and high-angle faults, a possible 'cap rock', and multiple Laramide or Tertiary intrusions with well-zoned, prograde and retrograde alteration haloes.

Southern Silver has completed nine drill holes totaling a 3,202 metre diamond drill program on the project. Potential for bulk-tonnage intrusion-related gold, polymetallic replacement (CRD)/skarn deposits, and copper-gold porphyries remains high with drilling having encountered strongly altered intrusive and sedimentary rocks, with anomalous metals, reflecting the large size of this mineral system. Mapping and sampling peripheral to the main altered area at the property has identified the shallow Stock Pond disseminated gold target. Permits have been received for additional drill testing of up to 14 holes which will expedite future exploration on the property.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
