Southern Gold Begins Diamond Drilling in Cambodia

South Australia-based mining company Southern Gold has begun its first drilling campaign at the Snoul Prospect in Eastern Cambodia.

The diamond drilling programme will focus on a series of artisanal gold workings and new gold-in-soil anomalies.

To test the potential of these soil anomalies and mineralised structure, the company plans to complete eight diamond holes at the prospect of approximately 1,200m.

Southern Gold is planning further drilling campaigns during the first half of 2008 in both Australia and Cambodia.
