Mineral projects developer Sunrise Resources has submitted a combined document to US authorities relating to the CS pozzolan-perlite project in Nevada.

The combined mine plan of operations/Nevada reclamation permit application has been submitted to the US Bureau of Land Management, as well as Nevada’s Bureau of Mining Regulation & Reclamation.

The company said the plan sets out in detail how it plans to develop the CS mine over time and how it would then be reclaimed and closed.

Sunrise said in a 15-year plan, which was outlined in October 2018, that it plans to initially mine from either the Main Zone or Tuff Zone pits, or both with separate mining plans for each.

“We look forward now to progressing the project on several fronts as we continue to advance the project towards production.”

The new plan includes both options, as well as, a longer, 27-year life-of-mine, with perlite and pozzolan being mined in the initial 15 years from the Main Zone and then just pozzolan from the Tuff Zone.

The plan of operations also features programmes of drilling and bulk sampling to run simultaneously with mining.

Sunrise noted that the exploration programmes will test for extensions of perlite and natural pozzolan, which are open-ended and project beyond the existing pit limits.

Plans include the assessment of the Northeast Zone, which has so far been tested by a single drill hole intersecting 40m of high-quality natural pozzolan from the surface. Earlier exploration indicates that the Northeast Zone target extends over an area at least as large as the Main Zone.

Commenting on the company’s document submission, Sunrise Resources executive chairman Patrick Cheetham said: “This is a key milestone in the permitting of the CS Project, following months of hard work by our small team. We look forward now to progressing the project on several fronts as we continue to advance the project towards production.”
