Millennial Potash Corp. (TSXV: MLP | OTCQB: MLPNF | FSE: X0D) has received analytical results for the resampling programme of hole BA-003 at its Banio Potash Project.
The results have confirmed that BA-003 intersected evaporite Cycles V, VI, VII, and VIII, cutting 17 carnallitite seams including up to 28.61m of 58.9% carnallite, and four sylvinite seams. Interpretation of the data has confirmed previous values reported by the previous operator, indicating the historic data is suitable for future use to evaluate the potash potential of the Banio Potash Project.
Millennial’s Chair, Farhad Abasov, commented, “Millennial is pleased to have received the analytical results from re-sampling the pulps from historic drillhole BA-003 at our Banio Potash Project. The results confirm the extension of the main carnallitite seams over 2km from BA002 with significant widths of up to 28.6m grading 15.8% KCl or almost 59% carnallite.”
“Numerous other seams were confirmed as well supporting our interpretation that Banio has excellent potential to be a bulk solution mining project. In addition, the top of Cycle VIII in BA-003 contains several sylvinite seams up to 5.25m thick grading up to 31% KCl which correlate with seams in BA-002 representing an additional target that may be amenable to solution mining.”
The company, with a potash engineering consultancy firm, selected 230 key, stored pulp samples with high K-grades from Infinity’s potash drillhole BA-003, completed in 2017. Samples were analyzed by the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) geoanalytical laboratories which is world renowned for its potash analytical facilities.
The results were incorporated into the Banio Potash Project drillhole database, replacing the Infinity values.
In addition to confirming carnallitite seam widths and grades, Millennial’s resampling programme was designed to evaluate the quality of the historic data from ALS Global for overall intermediate grade potash samples by comparing it with a lab specializing on potash analysis.
