- Sunrise Resources has announced the discovery of a new area of pozzolan to the north-east of the Main Zone pozzolan-perlite at its CS Pozzolan-Perlite Project in Nevada.

An additional 17 Mining Claims have now been staked to include the new discovery area which is now referred to as the "Northeast Zone".

The Company said the Northeast Zone has a mapped area approximately 650m long by 650m wide.

Four surface samples taken at different localities from within the Northeast Zone have been submitted to Magmatics Inc. for cement replacement strength testing. Seven-day strengths are now available from three of these samples and all exceed the seven-day strength requirements of ASTM standard C618N1. The four samples also exhibit perlitic expansion.

A number of trenches will be excavated within the new Northeast Zone as part of the recently announced field programme to collect representative samples from the sub-surface.

Commenting today, Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said:

"I am delighted to be announcing the discovery of a third zone of natural pozzolan close to the Company's existing areas of interest. This vindicates the Company's recently stated initiative to focus its resources on the CS Project. We believe that this discovery increases the value of the project and adds to the future production opportunities which we are progressing towards development."
