Trigg Mining Limited (ASX: TMG) has commenced the next crucial step in establishing the mineral endowment of its large SOP tenure near Laverton in Western Australia with the mobilisation of a geophysics team and an aircore drill rig to its Laverton Links SOP Project.
Later this month the company will also seek heritage clearance from the Ngaanyatjarra traditional owners at the highly prospective Lake Throssell SOP Project paving the way for a shallow pit sampling program of the playa lake surface.
Managing Director, Keren Paterson said Trigg is looking to secure Australia’s sustainable agriculture future through the exploration of essential potassium fertiliser, sulphate of potash (SOP), necessary for global food production and human nutrition. SOP provides essential macro nutrients for plant growth without any detrimental elements, such as chloride found in muriate of potash (MOP).
In addition, SOP can be produced sustainably through the solar evaporation of potassium-rich hypersaline brine water, without the need for large open pits or waste-rock dumps.
Trigg listed on the ASX last month following completion of a $4.5 million IPO and is actively exploring approximately 2,640 km2 of granted tenure for the essential mineral fertiliser, sulphate of potash, across two projects: Laverton Links SOP and Lake Throssell SOP.
We are very pleased to have exploration underway across the Trigg’s Sulphate of Potash Projects,” Ms Paterson said,
“Over the coming weeks we will see drilling occur across the Laverton Links SOP Project where we are targeting the reporting of initial Mineral Resource estimate and at Lake Throssell reconnaissance exploration will commence once Trigg has secured heritage clearance from the Ngaanyatjarra traditional owners.
“We look forward to reporting the results from each of these programs to our shareholders in the New Year.”
