Field Work Commences

Southern Gold is pleased to announce that field work has commenced after the winter break in South Korea. The period of March-April is important for boots-on-the-ground mapping activity as the geology is exposed due to vegetation die-off post melting of winter snow.A geological consultant expert at epithermal mineral systems has been deployed to advance technical assessments of several projects in preparation for drilling.

Work has commenced at Beopseongpo and will subsequently move to Deokon, both projects granted 100% to Southern Gold during 2018.These projects represent very large scale, multi-kilometre low and intermediate sulphidation epithermal systems that have returned very high gold and silver grades.
