Southern Hemisphere Mining Limited has announced RC/Diamond Drilling program at its Colina2 Gold Project in Chile is complete, with work to begin on a new drilling program at the neighbouring Llahuin Copper-Gold Project in November 2021.

Highlights from Colina2 Project Completion:

  • A total of 19 holes were drilled at Colina2 with a combination of RC and Diamond drilling for a total program length of 2,793 metres drilled.
  • The original 800m program was extended following initial results including 34m @1.39g/t Gold from 24m.
  • Preliminary Au cyanidation leach testwork started with ALS Chile.

The company’s Colina2 Results to date include 34m @1.39g/t Gold from 24m (ASX release 13 September 2021).

Samples have been sent to the ALS laboratory in Chile. The remainder will be dispatched to the lab by the end of this week. Results and analysis from the remaining drill holes are pending.

ALS Chile have organised 16 – 5m composite samples of material from gold bearing samples to be made up and tested by fire assay with ICP_MS finish and the remaining 1kg composite sample to be tested for cyanidation leach testwork using the Leachwell method.

Further results will be reported as assays are received and interpreted.

Llahuin Copper/Gold/Moly Project (100%)

The large Llahuin copper/gold/moly porphyry system is the Company’s next drilling program in H2 2021.

It is located 8km SE from Colina2, and 8km East of Pucobre’s – El Espino Copper/Gold mine development.

The current resource at Llahuin is in the measured and indicated category- 149mt@ 0.41% CuEq and the Company is working to expand this significantly following recent drone magnetics being flown, and recent surface sampling and interpretation.

Sourcing of a more powerful RC drill rig that can drill to 200m dry is underway, which will test several targets.

More detail about the drill rig timing, drilling targets, drone mag analysis and other exploration being planned will be provided in due course.
