SOUTHERN ARC ANNOUNCES SECURING A 2ND DRILL FOR ITS SELODONG PORPHYRY CU-AU PROSPECT
Vancouver, B.C.: Southern Arc Minerals Inc. (TSX Venture: SA) is pleased to announce that a second diamond drill rig has been secured for exploration activities at its Selodong Porphyry Cu-Au prospect. The drill rig will be mobilized to site on November 5, 2007 and immediately commence drilling at Kekalik (Figure 1), one of 15 defined porphyry Cu-Au drill target areas within SA's Selodong Intrusive Complex (SIC). Details of each of these targets were previously reported in NR 07-19, August 14, 2007.
The drill rig supplied by PT. Antero Indodrill is capable of coring 150-200 m PQ, 400-450 m HQ and 650-700 m NQ. Management feels based on encouraging Cu-Au drill intercepts from the first six holes (SLD01-06), together with information from detailed geologic mapping and 3D geological/geomagnetic modeling that an increase in drilling production is warranted to accelerate the advancement of the project.
