Eritrea copper/gold project development stepped up


Australian mining group Sub-Sahara Resources said yesterday that its joint venture partner Sunridge Gold Corp has agreed to increase its 2004 budget to $3,5-million to substantially expand and accelerate the Asmara copper/gold project.

The Asmara project consists of four tenements, immediately outside the Eritrean capital city of Asmara.

Based on previous mining and exploration activity, the ground covered by the tenements is an excellent geological environment for hosting copper/gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) type deposits, as well as primary shear-controlled gold mineralisation.

The Debarwa copper/gold project was the subject of a positive full feasibility study and significant development work during the 1970s by Ethio-Nippon Mining and this work included the sinking of a 136-m shaft, underground development and the extraction of a 2 000 t bulk sample.

While most of this data is extant, the venture partners believe the planned increased expenditure will allow the completion of resource definition drilling, as well as exploration drilling at the high-grade copper/gold Debarwa deposit in order to complete a scoping study and extend the original historic resource base.

In addition, substantial exploration will be conducted over other known VMS prospects, colonial mines, and new gold and VMS targets identified by the recent project wide airborne electromagnetic (EM) geophysical survey.

The new work programme will include extensive drilling, soil sampling and trenching, as well as first pass exploration of at least eight primary targets and 12 secondary VMS-style targets generated by the extensive EM geophysical survey.

The outline for each tenement is as follows: “Sub-Sahara views the expanded budget from Sunridge as a strong commitment to a very exciting project, with excellent potential; and during this expenditure phase, Sunridge will have earned a 40% interest in the project, having funded the minimum of $2,4-million in exploration expenditure,” Sub-Sahara said in a statement.
