Over the year, Sunrise said it had submitted a 27-year mine plan of operations and reclamation permit application to regulators while its environmental assessment for the project was “at an advanced stage”.
The firm is also continuing customer testing programmes for perlite produced from its operations and has signed a due diligence agreement for a local mothballed grinding plant for its natural pozzolan product.
Sunrise added that recent market development had resulted in increased demand for both products.
“Whilst our activities have been constrained by limited funds in 2019, we have ensured that the permitting of our CS Project has progressed as quickly as possible”, said Patrick Cheetham, executive chairman of Sunrise.
“As we go forward in 2020, I think we can justifiably say that our flagship CS Project is still on track, if a little behind the original schedule, due to factors beyond our control, and we look forward to progressing the project further in 2020”, he added.
