Nevsun Resources (TSX:NSU) has announced new results from exploration at its Harena Mining License, 10 kilometers south of the Bisha Mine.

As quoted in the press release:

Holes HX-040 and HX-041 were drilled to test greater than 100 meter wide gaps in the drill pattern of Harena above the 400 meter depth level. Both holes hit considerable intervals of massive sulphide that is recrystallized and coarse grained and contain appreciable chalcopyrite and sphalerite. This mineralization should be simple to process metallurgically. BHTEM surveys completed in these holes, coupled with the survey results from neighboring holes have defined a large geophysical plate that extends well below the current level of drilling.

Nevsun CEO, Cliff Davis, said:

Our exploration program is demonstrating the enormous growth potential of the Bisha VMS District. Our exploration methodology and execution has been very effective and we will continue to employ it over the entire under-explored Bisha area. Results from our work to-date at Harena will be included in the Company’s annual mineral reserve and resource statement, expected in February 2015. In 2015, exploration work will be expanded at Harena and will continue across the Bisha VMS District with further diamond drilling and geophysical programs.
