Highfield Resources completes exploration drilling at Vipasca permit area

Highfield Resources has completed exploration drilling at the Vipasca permit area in Spain, which is adjacent to the company's Muga potash project. 

Highlights

  • Recent drillholes at the Vipasca permit area have confirmed the presence of potash at good grades and potentially mineable depths.
  • V18-02 has confirmed the continuity of the Vipasca deposit and that the mineralisation remains open towards the West. Specifically, V18-02 intersected a total of 37 m of potash mineralisation including:
  • - 4.8 m at an average grade of 15.25% K2O from 996 m;
    - 2.4 m at an average grade of 14.18% K2O from 1119 m; and
    - 8.1 m at an average grade of 12.95% K2O from 1139 m.
  • V18-01 intersected a total of 1.8 metres of potash mineralisation at 9.32% K2O, confirming the continuity of the mineralisation towards the north-eastern edge of the Vipasca investigation permit.
  • A further drillhole, V18-05, is planned between the Muga Project and the Vipasca Permit Areas with the aim of confirming the continuity of mineralisation between Vipasca and the already delineated Muga Mineral Resource.

Highfield Resources CEO, Peter Albert, said: “The outstanding results from V18-02 are very encouraging, further reinforcing the interpretation of the geological model suggesting continuity between Muga and Vipasca. The results are so promising that we have decided to drill a further hole between Vipasca and Muga, which if positive will provide even more data for the development of a single Resource across Vipasca and Muga.”
