Potash Cycle No. 18¹

The Monument Potash Project’s area of interest lies in southeastern Utah, at the corner of the Arizona-Colorado-New Mexico state lines.  The area is geologically straightforward and there is little to no faulting predicted. Ambient temperatures in the region are thought to average 67-70°C, which is ideal for solution mining.

Early estimates indicate high potential for grades of 25-30% K2O with seams at average depths of approximately 2,100m (6,900ft).  Indications place anticipated deposit seam thickness in the range of 5-9m (16-30ft).

An independent report, containing reliable well data from seven wells surrounding the Monument Potash Project, states a large mineralized target using average thickness of 5m.  The Monument Potash Project leasehold area covers a prospective target area indicated in the report.  Three initial drill targets have already been identified and further work is being undertaken. 

Thickness Isopach & Well Data
 

Note 1: The above potential quantities and grades are conceptual in nature, and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource
