⚒️ Southern Hemisphere Mining Limited releases drone footage of the Llahuin Sulphide Corridor diamond and RC drilling in progress at its flagship Llahuin Copper-Gold-Moly Project in Chile.
The drone flight highlights the large IP Chargeability Sulphide Zone with the drone flying over part of the Cerro-Ferro link deposit, with the drill rigs starting to scope out how much bigger the current 680,000t CuEq resource at Llahuin can be.
The drilling program commenced in late October 2023 (continuing in November 2023) at the Cerro de Oro deposit testing downdip extensions from the previous drilling program and the area between the Cerro de Oro and Ferrocarril sectors where recent soil geochemistry demonstrates a significant copper and gold anomaly.

The high chargeability values (>40 mV/V & which should be related to pyrite distribution) tend to be elongated along and associated with the main NNW fault system.
The Central Porphyry and Cerro-Ferro deposits sit in the dextral dilation zone which has allowed the emplacement of the main porphyry root stock.

⚒️ A recent rock chip sampling program as part of mapping and refining drill targets returned a number of significant results as listed in Table 1 including, copper to 7.28%, gold to 18.65g/t and silver to 55g/t.

Regular updates will be provided during the drilling and as assay results are received from the ALS laboratory in La Serena with first results expected mid-November.
