Trigg Mining 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.
The Trigg Mining SOP Projects (Figure 1) are located nearby established energy and transport infrastructure for access to Australian and international agricultural markets, approximately 170km east of Laverton in WA and including the high-grade discovery at Lake Throssell and a JORC Compliant Mineral Resource at Lake Rason. The Projects cover 1,500 km² and contain over 380 km² of salt lake playa and 170 km of interpreted palaeochannels (ancient underground rivers) all highly prospective for brine hosted SOP.
