- Sunrise Resources has announced that, following on from its recent fundraising, surface and underground sampling is to continue to the south of existing exploration areas at its Bay State Silver Project in Nevada in preparation for follow-up drilling of earlier high-grade silver drill results.

Trenching and soil sampling is to be undertaken on the Garfield and Junction gold-copper projects in Nevada to evaluate high-grade surface mineralisation.

Sampling and process testwork is now planned for Pozz Ash Project in Nevada to determine suitability as a natural "green" cement replacement raw material.

Other project updates:

New Nevada subsidiary to be formed to acquire gold projects in Nevada using low-cost project generator model.

Fieldwork planned at Cue Diamond Project in Australia targeting the source of Target 5 diamondiferous kimberlite float and additional kimberlite geophysical anomalies.

Commenting today, Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said: "I am pleased to have increased my interest in the Company by participating in our recent fundraising and look forward to reporting results from our work programmes over the coming months. I am particularly excited about increasing our exposure to the resurgent gold sector in Nevada, one of the major gold producing areas of the World, where a five year decline in the junior resource sector has opened up some great opportunities."
