Jun 26 14
Acron Group and Rio Tinto Group announced that it forms a joint venture company to continue evaluation of the development of the jointly held potash properties in Saskatchewan Canada, held its first Board of Directors meeting in London, UK. The JV Company holds nine potash permits covering 586,000 acres in the southern region of the district. The work undertaken has focused on permit KP 405 (the Albany Project) with the completion of drilling 13 wells, a 3-D seismic survey, and the preparation of a 43-101 Compliant Resource Study. The Albany Project is a massive, high quality resource, sufficient to support a world-class potash operation for many generations within mineral leases secured by the Joint Venture. The Project area contains an inferred resource of 1.4 billion tonnes within the mining caverns at an average grade of 31% KCl with a total recoverable amount of 329 million tonnes of KCl. The critically important downhole temperatures averaged 63 (o) C ranking it one of the high in the region. The deposit will be developed using a solution cavern mining design which compared to a conventional underground operation normally results in lower capital requirements per product tonne, faster construction, greater overall flexibility, and ease of future plant scalability.
