Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 10, 2024) - Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSXV: SSV) (the "Company" or "Southern Silver") announces that due to increased interest, the previously announced $3,300,000 private placement has been increased to $4,500,000. The Company now plans to issue up to 20,454,546 units in the non-brokered private placement ("Offering") at a price of $0.22 per unit for gross proceeds of $4,500,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half (0.5) of one warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share for a period of 3 years at a price of $0.30.

The Company may pay finders' fees comprised of cash and non-transferable warrants in connection with the Offering, subject to compliance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued and sold under the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from closing. Completion of the Offering and the payment of any finders' fees remain subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Net proceeds from the private placement will be used for the continued development of the Cerro Las Minitas (CLM) property, Durango, Mexico and for working capital. Following the recent PEA update, management is now considering the Company's next steps in the advancement and development of the project.

As currently modelled, the CLM project features a large-Scale underground mining operation with robust project economics and high gross revenues in a well located and mining friendly jurisdiction in southeast Durango, Mexico.
