Kore Potash to release pre-feasibility study for Dougou extension in May

Kore Potash has announced results from recent drilling at the Dougou extension (DX) potash solution mining project, at the Sintoukola potash project in the Republic of Congo, as part of the DX pre-feasibility study (PFS).


  • Drilling of diamond drill infill holes for the DX PFS was completed during 1Q20.
  • Significant high grade sylvinite intersections include:
  • - Hole DX_07 containing 4.2 m grading 56.4% KCl; and
    - Hole DX_09B containing 4.9 m grading 32% KCl.
  • Results from these drill holes are being incorporated into the DX PFS.

The PFS drill programme was designed to obtain additional information on the two seams which host the high grade sylvinite mineralisation at the DX deposit, the Top Seam and the Hanging Wall Seam.

Three holes were drilled; DX_07, DX_08 and DX_09B.

Drill holes DX_07 and DX_09B were drilled to the planned depth and intersected significant sylvinite mineralisation. The drilling of these holes included diamond coring through the targeted salt and potash layers and was completed in February 2020.

Drill hole DX_08 did not achieve planned depth and was stopped before intersecting the salt or potash layers. Drilling of this hole was halted following equipment failure.

Samples of the core from drill holes DX_07 and DX_09B were analysed at SGS Lakefield laboratory in Canada. Both DX_07 and DX_09B intersected high grade, thick sylvinite seams with low insoluble content.

The results of this drilling programme are being incorporated into the DX PFS and the company anticipates release of the PFS results to shareholders during May 2020.
