ERITREA NEVSUN RESOURCES of Vancouver has encountered bonanza zinc grades at its Bisha massive sulphide project in this tiny African nation. The best intersection as 12.74% Zn over 83.9 metres. Over its 128.4-metre length, this hole (B-329) returned 8.4% Zn, 0.96% Cu, 0.32% Zn, 0.66 g/t Au and 49.1 g/t Ag.
Hole B-329 intersected two distinct zones of massive sulphides. The upper sphalerite-rich zone graded 0.72 g/t Au, 62.0 g/t Ag, 0.92% Cu, 0.49% Pb and 12.74% Zn over 83.9 metres. The second, copper-enriched zone returned 0.56 g/t Au, 22.9 g/t Ag, 1.05% Cu, 0.30% Pb and 0.30% Zn over 44.5 metres. Zinc assays are cut to 30%.
In addition to the Bisha project, Nevsun has other projects in Mali and Ghana. Details are available at www.Nevsun.com.
