In Brief: Miner's first exploration

Australia-based Southern Gold said Monday that it had completed its first exploration program for the 2009 season and is awaiting results. The company has four mineral properties in Cambodia where it is exploring for gold and base metals. The Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation is funding the three-year, US$4.5 million project. The company said "potentially significant mineralisation" was revealed in six trenches, with gold showings of up to 65 grams per tonne.
