Canadian base metals producer Nevsun Resources has found more mineralisation at its flagship Bisha mine and satellite deposits in Eritrea, on the Horn of Africa. Drilling undertaken in 2016 has increased the inferred resource at the Harena deposit by nearly 130% to 25-million tonnes grading 0.93% copper, 4.76% zinc, 0.8 g/t gold and 31 g/t silver. Harena, a satellite deposit to the Bisha mine, remains open with further drilling taking place this year.
