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) deposit and is mainly hosted in strongly foliated and distorted altered mafic volcanic tuff and flows. (see map 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.
