Trigg Mining expands strategic footprint at Lake Throssell

Published by , Deputy Editor
World Fertilizer,

Trigg Mining’s new tenement application for the Lake Throssell Sulfate of Potash Project expands tenure to the south, increasing the project area to 937km2.


  • New tenement application covers interpreted extensions to the palaeovalley to the south.
  • Total project area increased to 937km2.
  • The application covers 55 linear km of the Great Central Road, improving project access and future site layout options to optimise project development and logistics.
  • Maiden air-core drilling programme of up to 23 holes is on track to mobilise next week. The imminent drill programme is designed to establish a maiden JORC Mineral Resource Estimate for Lake Throssell.

Trigg Mining Ltd has advised that it has expanded its strategic footprint at the highly prospective Lake Throssell Sulfate of Potash (SOP) Project in Western Australia with a new tenement application covering interpreted extensions to the prospective palaeochannel to the south. This tenement is adjacent to existing Throssell tenements.

The new application will also improve project access and future site layout options by incorporating the Great Central Road which will play a key role in transport logistics.

The expanded tenure covers potential extensions of the palaeochannel to the south-east beyond the existing tenement area defined by the recent ground gravity traverses, including a large interpreted bend in the palaeochannel.

The planned maiden air-core drilling programme to test the palaeochannel defined by the recent gravity survey is on track to commence next week and has been designed to drill the extent of the palaeochannel within the existing granted tenement E38/3065.

The results from the upcoming programme are expected to support a maiden mineral resource estimate for the project, targeted by the end of 2020.
