SULPHATE OF POTASH
WELCOME TO TRIGG MINING
At Trigg Mining, our purpose is to build mines communities can be proud of and we're delivering on this by exploring for an essential natural fertiliser for global food production. We're exploring for naturally occurring sulphate of potash (SOP), found in potassium-rich hypersaline brine water, which provides two essential elements for plant growth and human nutrition - potassium and sulphur. Beside from its ability to provide these two important macro nutrients, its other important characteristic is that it contains very little chloride which is detrimental to many crops such as fruit and vegetables including avocados, cocoa, coffee beans, grapes, berries and tree nuts, as well as arid and acidic soils.
In Australia we currently import all our potassium fertiliser needs, often from as far away as Canada and Germany, whilst we have known potassium-rich brines in the desert regions of Western Australia. Trigg Mining has built a competitive footprint across two SOP Projects in the Goldfields of Western Australia nearby established transport and energy infrastructure for access to Australian and International markets. The two Projects : Laverton Links and Lake Throssell Potash Projects cover approximately 2,640 square kilometres of granted tenure containing over 400 square km of salt lake playa and 300 km of interpreted palaeochannels (ancient underground rivers), all prospective for brine hosted sulphate of potash (SOP), approximately 200 km east of Laverton in Western Australia.
Early exploration work has established a JORC Compliant Exploration Target at the Lake Rason Prospect, identified the palaeochannel and SOP mineralisation at the Lake Hope Campbell Prospect, of which both Prospects form a part of the Laverton Links Potash Project and publicly available data shows a strong indication of the potential for SOP mineralisation at the Lake Throssell Potash Project.
