THE DRILL SERGEANT: Trigg Mining (ASX: TMG) announced it has received results of drilling carried out in December 2019 over the company’s Laverton Links sulphate of potash (SOP) project in Western Australia.
Trigg Mining reported the results include the intersection of a 52 metres-thick sequence on sands and conglomerates on the periphery of the previously defined Lake Rason system.
This was achieved by hole LRATC001a from 44 metres with an average grade of 2,350 milligrams per litre (mg/l) potassium (or 5,230mg/l Sulphate of Potash (SOP) equivalent).
Elsewhere, scout drilling along the Lake Hope Campbell trend identified multiple thick basal sand aquifers with a peak intersection of:
11m at 2,330mg/l potassium (or 5,200mg/l SOP equivalent) in from 59m.
Trigg’s 2019 aircore drilling program at Lake Hope Campbell is the first known drilling over this 106-kilometres interpreted palaeochannel trend.
The company declared it has intercepted deep palaeochannel sands and gravels over multiple holes with transects of up to 1,300mwide.
These zones are also expected to have high permeability based upon Trigg’s field observations.
The results from this program, in addition to the program completed in 2017 at Lake Rason, will be included in a Mineral Resource estimate expected later this quarter.
“The 2019 drilling program tested the extent of the Laverton Links SOP Project and confirmed the extension of the mineralisation at Lake Rason,” Trigg Mining managing director Keren Paterson said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“At Lake Hope Campbell several thick basal sand aquifer units with potassium grades up to 2,330mg/l potassium were encountered with palaeochannel widths of up to 1,300 metres.
“The results achieved from across the Laverton Links potash project will allow Trigg to rationalise the large tenure and focus attention on the high-grade Lake Throssell potash project and the more significant areas of Laverton Links.”
