The company, in a project update, highlighted progress at the CS Pozzolan-Perlite and Sundance Gold projects in Nevada, and Baker's Gold project in Western Australia.
“We anticipate a high level of activity now that our CS Project is permitted for production and as we continue the exploration of our precious metals projects in Nevada and Australia,” said Patrick Cheetham, Sunrise executive chairman in the statement.
“The assay results from drilling at our Clayton Silver-Gold Project in Nevada are now keenly awaited."
At CS, the company noted that it has completed a 500-ton mining sample on schedule. The work is being done in collaboration with a large cement and ready-mix company which will use the material in commercial concrete trials.
A separate 200-ton perlite sample completed and delivered to the processing site.
The Sundance project saw a soil sampling programme completed, with a gold in soil anomaly identified for further testing.
In Australia, an aboriginal heritage survey was completed – and no sites were identified - and the proposed drill programme was approved.
The company plans a five-hole reverse circulation drill programme to test three target areas These are the old mine workings, areas of gold nugget production and a large gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly. It is expected that drilling will start as soon as possible. Presently, quotes are being obtained from contractors.
