Elemental Minerals starts phase3 drilling at Republic of Congo potash mine

PERTH, AUSTRALIA: Elemental Minerals Ltd has commenced the Phase 3A drilling at the Kola deposit on the Company’s Sintoukola Potash Project in the Republic of Congo. Phase 3A will comprise two boreholes to test the extension of sylvinite seams in the western part of the Kola deposit. There is good potential to intersect further high-grade sylvinite of the Upper and Lower Seams as well as additional extremely high-grade mineralisation of the Hangingwall Seam.

“At well over 50 per cent KCl, the Hangingwall Seam presents an exceptional opportunity; if either of these boreholes are positive it would support substantial increase in ELM’s resource target for this ‘super-high-grade’ sylvinite. Intersection of a sylvinite Upper and/or Lower Seam would also be a great result, opening up possibility for significant westward extension of these thick high-grade seams upon which the PFS is based,” said Iain Macpherson, CEO, Elemental Minerals.
