Sunrise Resources plc announced 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.
