Sunridge Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGC) has reported assay results from the first four of 35 diamond drill holes completed as part of a detailed definition drilling being conducted at the high-grade copper-gold-zinc Debarwa VMS deposit, Asmara Project, Eritrea.
DEBD-126 and 127 were drilled to test the continuity of the deeper primary mineralization at Debarwa with DEBD-126 showing continuity of the copper mineralization in particular at depth. Both drill holes DEBD-128 and DEBD-129 intercepted the shallow, high-grade copper-enriched supergene zone showing copper grades of over 20% in some intervals providing further confidence in the continuity of this very high grade copper zone for the ongoing feasibility study.
The results of the recent drilling will be used in the new resource estimate for Debarwa which is expected to be completed in March 2011. Samples will also be taken from this drilling for metallurgical studies forming part of the ongoing feasibility study that commenced last November.
- A Quality Assurance/Quality Control program was part of the sampling program on the Debarwa copper-zinc-gold deposit. This program includes chain of custody protocols as well as systematic submittals of standards, duplicates and blank samples into the flow of samples produced by the sampling.
- Samples were prepared at African Horn Testing Services (Eritrea) and analyzed at Genalysis Laboratories (a NATA registered laboratory) in Perth, Western Australia.
- The results of the Debarwa drill program have been reviewed by Michael J. Hopley the Qualified Person for Sunridge. Mr. Hopley is also the person responsible for preparation of the technical information contained in this news release and is President and Chief Executive Officer of Sunridge.
