Sunrise Resources (AIM:SRES) Bulk Sampling – Hazen Pozzolan Project, Nevada, USA

Sunrise Resources plc is pleased to announce the start of a collaborative arrangement with an existing processor of natural pozzolan for mining and test grinding of a bulk sample of the Company’s Hazen natural pozzolan deposit in northern Nevada.

This follows successful laboratory testing of the Hazen pozzolan by both parties and the test programme will provide further information on the mining characteristics and grinding behaviour of the Hazen natural pozzolan on a commercial scale. Approximately 250 tons of natural pozzolan will be extracted and processed at no cost to Sunrise.

Mining equipment is being mobilised and the bulk sample is scheduled to be mined and delivered to the process plant this week for processing as soon as facilities allow. The owner of the process plant is already involved in the processing and marketing of natural pozzolan.

Commenting today, Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said:

“Whilst there is currently no obligation on either party to enter into a further agreement at this stage, this is an important collaboration. The other party has the processing facilities and marketing network in those regions targeted by the Hazen Project to commercialise the Hazen deposit in the future and the deposit is well located close to rail.

Our progress at the Hazen Project does not detract from our focus on the more advanced
CS Pozzolan-Perlite Project in Nevada as the two projects target different regional areas of cement and concrete demand served by a range of different cement and ready-mix companies.

We look forward to advancing the Hazen Pozzolan Project alongside the
CS Project, and to providing further news from our Pioche Sepiolite Project in Nevada where Tolsa, the world’s largest producer of sepiolite, recently applied for a permit to carry out a large trenching programme.”

A schematic plan showing the location of the CS and Hazen pozzolan deposits and their target markets is available on the Company’s website at:
