Great Quest Fertilizer Ltd has reported a geological programme has been initiated at the Tilemsi phosphate property, with the aim of advancing the Inferred resource to that of a Measured and Indicated resource. A bulk sample will be obtained, additional drilling will be undertaken and detailed topographical survey for mine planning will be completed.
The company has been able to recover large quantities of material from its property in Bourem, North Mali, which has been used for agronomic testing. Additionally during this period there have been visits on the site by both management and company geologists. This new programme will be the first comprehensive geological effort in last four years.
Crews will be mobilised in October as the rainy season concludes. The programme is expected to last six weeks.
Commenting, Jed Richardson CEO, said: "The completion of this work is a necessary step to secure mining permits for the phosphate project. We believe the upgrading and granting of the permits should advance the project to a stage where we can secure funding for construction of our project with the aid of regional and international development finance institutions."
