Sunrise Resources will start the second phase of drilling at its Bay State silver project in Nevada on 7 September.
Three drill holes are planned as a follow up to high-grade silver mineralisation found in phase 1 drilling - two holes to test Chihuahua Vein south of Mining Canyon and beneath 19th/20th Century mine workings with an additional hole planned as first test of Lincoln vein system.
The objective is to demonstrate continuity of mineralisation along strike, to justify a substantial resource definition drilling programme and a scoping study for the development of future mining operations.
Assay results are expected within 6 weeks of completion of the two-week programme.
Executive chairman Patrick Cheetham said: "We are pleased to be announcing a start date for drilling, and we look forward to releasing results as soon as they become available."
