Sunridge Gold Drills 58 Metres Of 1.44% Copper At Adi Rassi Copper-Gold Project, Asmara Project, Eritrea

The objective of this recently completed thirteen hole drilling program is to better define and possibly extend the depth and strike extent of the mineralized zone at Adi Rassi. The results of these first three drill holes certainly verify the strong copper and gold mineralization over long intervals in the northern part of the zone.

Further drilling results will be issued when received over the next few weeks.

Copper and gold mineralization at Adi Rassi is associated with quartz veins and breccia zones along a major shear zone that trends northeast for over 3 kilometres and dips steeply to the west. This mineralization is considered to be remobilized from a distal source, possibly an as yet unidentified buried volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralization and is mainly hosted in strongly foliated and distorted altered mafic volcanic tuff and flows. (see maps and cross-section at the end of this news release).

The Adi Rassi prospect is located less than 10 kilometres from Sunridge’s Debarwa copper-zinc-gold VMS deposit where a positive feasibility study was completed and announced May 14, 2012. This proximity could have positive implications for any mining opportunities in the southern part of the Asmara Project.
