- Sunrise Resources said completion of permitting for its CS Pozzolan-Perlite Project in Nevada would be delayed slightly to the fourth quarter of 2019.

The company said it planned to submit a plan of operation and reclamation permit later this month.

An emissions inventory was also nearing completion for the Federal Environmental Assessment and State Air Quality Permit application, the company added.

A suitable water source had been identified and water rights and development rights of way applications had been submitted.

Sunrise also said that latest testwork at the project showed promise for production of premium-value super-coarse horticultural grades of perlite.

The company had also recorded positive results from concrete trials by a second large cement/ready-mix company using the company's natural pozzolan.
