VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 6, 2011) - Sunridge Gold Corp. (News - Market indicators) announces it has received encouraging gold assays for the first 27 of 51 reverse-circulation drill holes from the recent program at the Gupo Gold deposit on the Company's 100% owned Asmara Project, Eritrea. The approximately 4,500 meter drilling program was designed to expand and upgrade the current Inferred resource at Gupo to the Measured and Indicated categories as part of the ongoing prefeasibility study on the Asmara North Deposits which include the Emba Derho, Adi Nefas, and Gupo Gold deposits.

Gold mineralization at Gupo extends over a strike length of 1.6 kilometers and is associated with stockwork quartz veins and a sericite alteration halo controlled by a shear zone. Current resources contain 189,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 2.99 g/t (see details of resources at the end of this news release) The resource is at surface and extends down to 80 meters vertical depth and remains open. As can be seen in the attached map the results of these first 27 holes extend over only about a 600 metres strike length in the northern part of the deposit.

To view a map of the Gupo Gold 2011 Drill Program please visit the following link:


  • Drill hole GG-028-R intersected 37 meters averaging 1.51 g/t gold
  • Drill hole GG-030-R intersected 9 meters averaging 9.26 g/t gold
  • Drill hole GG-036-R intersected 47 meters averaging 2.13 g/t gold
  • Drill hole GG-039-R intersected 29 meters averaging 2.05 g/t gold
  • Drill hole GG-047-R intersected 64 meters averaging 1.25 g/t gold

"We are very pleased with the gold results in the first 27 holes," commented Michael Hopley, President and CEO of Sunridge Gold. "The results appear to support the previous resources and we hope that when we have received all the results the resource at Gupo will be both extended and upgraded and become part of proposed early mining operations at Asmara North." A summary of significant results are as follows:
