- 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;
- 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.
- 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.
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.”
