VR COMMENCES 2018 SURFACE EXPLORATION AT JUNCTION; GRAVITY ANOMALY CONFIRMS THE DOWN-DIP POTENTIAL OF COPPER-SILVER VEINS
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 update provided by VR Resources Ltd (“VR”) for the Junction Copper-Silver-Gold Project area in Nevada, USA, in which Sunrise holds an interest.
This follows on from the recent announcement of the expansion of the project area and the discovery high grade copper-silver-gold mineralisation along a 6km trend as announced on 12 December 2017.
· 2018 surface exploration at Junction underway with gravity survey already completed
· Large high-contrast gravity anomaly at Denio Summit confirms the down dip potential of copper-silver veins, all in the Sunrise Area of Interest
· Further exploration planned for this spring at Junction includes:
· Induced Polarisation geophysical survey
· Airborne magnetic and radiometric survey
VR also advises that it has increased the size of the Junction Property again by staking an additional 19 claims within the Sunrise Area of Interest.
Commenting on the news today, VR stated: “We are compelled to see the strong spatial association of the gravity anomaly and surface copper-silver showings at the Denio Summit target; the size and magnitude (density contrast) of the anomaly are evidence for the down-dip continuation of the sulphide veins, and potentially a sulphide bearing intrusive source. The overall vein system at Junction extends for six kilometres along the Antelope Shear Zone; our work this spring will increase our understanding of the entire system, and more specifically refine and evaluate the Denio Summit target for first-pass drilling.”
