Underground systematic channel sampling completed

Southern Gold Limited has completed the first phase of systematic underground channel sampling at its Deokon Gold Project in the central-southwest of South Korea (Inset Figure 1) under its strategy to commence work quickly on newly acquired tenure.

Access discussions with the land-owner were approved and risk assessments conducted within three-weeks of tenement Jeonju 70 being granted (ASX Release 6 August 2018 “Tenements granted at Deokon, South Korea“). Underground sampling was undertaken between the 23rd and 27th August. A total of 79 channel samples were taken across 22 sample lines from two historical drives on the lower 224 Level of the historic Shin adit Au-Ag Mine (Figure 1).
