Trigg Mining Commences Gravity Surveys Across Sulphate of Potash Portfolio

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Trigg Mining (ASX: TMG) has commenced its first-ever ground-based exploration activities on the Lake Yeo sulphate of potash (SoP) project in Western Australia.

Trigg Mining recently secured the grant of the tenements covering what it considers to be an exciting growth opportunity, located immediately south-east of the company’s flagship Lake Throssell SOP project.

The results of the Lake Yeo gravity survey will assist in determining drill-hole targets to assess the porosity of the sediments, depth of the aquifer, and brine composition within the palaeovalley.

The company also has gravity surveys underway at Lake Throssell as part of the next phase of work for a current Pre-Feasibility Study.

“The current in-fill gravity program at Lake Throssell signifies the formal start of the Pre-Feasibility Study and will assist with identifying potential resource extensions and help to refine the planning for the test-production bores expected to be drilled in the middle of 2022,” Trigg Mining managing director Keren Paterson said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The grant of the tenements at Lake Yeo is also a major step in evaluating the broader regional potential for SOP mineralisation close to Lake Throssell – potential which we believe is very significant.

“Lake Yeo lies just to the south, along the same interpreted palaeovalley and has similar signatures for potassium and sulphate as Lake Throssell.

“The maiden gravity survey is designed to identify the palaeovalley and potential future drill-hole locations to test this exciting project.

“If we are successful with our upcoming exploration activities, this could be a transformational development that results in a dramatic expansion of our growth pipeline in the district, around a central SOP processing hub based at Lake Throssell.”
