Sunshine has applied for prospecting licences for the Jejevo nickel deposit and Tausere bauxite deposit in the Solomon Islands and the funds will be used to obtain the Jejevo licence and Tausere land user agreement. Sunshine already has in place a land user agreement for Jejevo and has been granted a prospecting licence for Tausere.
Jejevo nickel deposit
Work previously completed on the Jejevo nickel deposit comprises 6 diamond drill holes completed in 2012 and 332 diamond core drill holes completed in 2013.
A technological study on the Jejevo deposit was carried out by Golder Associates in 2011 identifying 14mt @1.19% Ni and .05% Co at a 0.7% Ni cut off.
Tausere bauxite deposit
The Tausere bauxite deposit is a non resource defined early stage exploration asset over a 510km² tenement area with 3 target areas.
Details of the Strategic Investment
Gunsynd has subscribed for 1,110,000 shares in Sunshine. After the closing of the placement, Gunsynd will hold 10% of the issued equity of Sunshine.
Hamish Harris, the Company's Executive Chairman, commented:
"Whilst this investment is not in line with our recent onshore oil and gas focus it does provide the potential for a very large reward at a small cost. We will be working closely with Sunshine in order to help them to both obtain the jejevo licence and then if successful to obtain a maiden JORC resource and bring the company to market. Sunshine have already agreed a deal with the relevant landowners with respect to Jejevo and are confident that the licence can be achieved in the next few months"
