Junction Project - Exploration Update

RNS Number : 3420U
Sunrise Resources Plc
11 July 2018


("Sunrise" or "the Company")


11 July 2018




Sunrise Resources plc, the AIM-traded company focusing on the development of its CS Pozzolan-Perlite Project in Nevada, USA, is pleased to provide the following exploration summary and update announced today by VR Resources Ltd ("VR") for the Junction Copper-Silver-Gold Project area in Nevada, USA, in which Sunrise holds an interest1.


This follows on from the discovery of high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralisation along a 6km trend as announced on 12 December 2017 and the exploration update announced on 17 April 2018.  




VR has announced that its ongoing surface exploration this spring has strengthened the targets within the high-grade copper-silver-gold vein system at Junction as it continues to compile and synthesize new data towards the prioritisation of targets for a first-pass drill programme planned for this autumn.


VR reports the following summary update for the Denio Summit Target, which occurs wholly within the Sunrise Area of Interest1.  This includes the latest exploration results from an Induced Polarisation (IP) geophysical survey and an integrated airborne magnetic and radiometric survey.


Denio Summit Target: 


·     1.5km trend of surface showings of copper-silver-gold quartz veins and pegmatites; 


·     Gold enrichment in 86 soil samples on 10 lines covering 1km of the surface trend of showings;


·     Potassium depletion anomaly approximately 800m long defined by airborne magnetic and radiometric survey coincident with the soil anomaly, and coincident with an interior low in the gravity high anomaly at the Denio Summit target. The potassium depletion and low density are indicative of mineral alteration;


·     IP chargeability anomaly defined from surface to depth along the down-dip extension of the veins in the northern part of the trend, coincident with the gravity low, the potassium depletion zone and the strongest (widest) part of the multi-station, copper-gold-tungsten soil anomaly.



Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham today commented: "I am pleased to see that VR is continuing its systematic exploration of this exciting property and planning a drill programme this autumn, an event that triggers a further issue of shares to Sunrise. Whilst our focus remains firmly on developing the CS Project in Nevada, this news is a timely reminder of the value that we have built up in our wider portfolio of drill stage exploration projects.
