Trigg Mining collects first samples from Lake Throssell sulphate of potash project

The company has doubled the Lake Throssell project area by securing an additional 434 square kilometres along the northern and southern extensions of the interpreted underlying paleochannels.

Trigg Mining Ltd (ASX:TMG) has completed three significant in-field exploration milestones at its two sulphate of potash (SOP) projects near Laverton in WA, just weeks after listing on the ASX.

Trigg Mining’s SOP Projects

Lake Throssell SOP Project

The completion of the heritage survey with the Ngaanyatjarra traditional owners at the Lake Throssell SOP Project paved the way for the very first SOP sampling program across Lake Throssell with results expected early in the next quarter.

The early positive signs of the potential mineralisation have led Trigg to apply for two additional tenements to the north and the south of Lake Throssell along the interpreted underlying paleochannels, securing the paleo-system and taking the project area to 752 square kilometres.

Laverton Links SOP Project

At Laverton Links the first drilling program at Lake Hope Campbell has also been completed with 1463 metres of air core drilling across 20 holes testing the entire 100 kilometres of the paleochannel.

Drilling targeted the gravity lows detected by the recently completed ground gravity survey in combination with the existing publicly available aerial electromagnetic (AEM) survey.

The drilling encountered traditional Goldfields style paleovalley sediments including a lacustrine clay aquitard up to 50 metres thick and basal sand and gravel aquifer beneath the clay up to 40 metres thick.

The drill rig has now moved to Lake Rason where 500 metres of drilling is planned to supplement the previous air core drilling results and will allow for an initial resource estimate to be calculated.

Further drilling planned

Trigg managing director Keren Paterson said: “In just a few weeks since listing we have completed multiple significant milestones.

“At Lake Throssell - a heritage survey, reconnaissance sampling and additional tenement applications covering the Lake Throssell system have been completed.

“At Laverton Links we’ve finished the first drilling program at Lake Hope Campbell which encountered multiple intersections of up to 40m of basal sands and gravels.

“Assay results for the sampling programs are expected next quarter and initial mineral resource estimates to follow.

“I would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to the of the Ngaanyatjarra, traditional owners of Lake Throssell, for their support in helping us to achieve the heritage clearance and for the cultural exchange we experienced.

“The field program will continue over the next few weeks with further drilling planned at Lake Rason and East Laverton and I look forward to keeping the market up to date on our rapid progress across both projects with assay results and initial mineral resource estimates due next quarter.”
