Agrimin Awards Construction Contract, Advances Potash Project

The recently finalized contract will see Primero Group engineer a design for a process plant at the Mackay site.

July has been a busy and productive month of wheeling and dealing for Australian potash company Agrimin (ASX:AMN).

The company awarded a construction contract for its Mackay potash project, expanded its product offerings and penned a memorandum of understanding with a local native title holder group.

The recently finalized construction contract will see Primero Group (ASX:PGX) engineer a design for a process plant, which will be located at the Mackay site.

Primero is an internationally recognized engineering firm specializing in the design, construction and subsequent commissioning of various resource projects around the world.

“This engagement follows a competitive process to select a contractor with suitable experience and capabilities to undertake both the engineering design and subsequent construction of the process plant and associated site based non-process infrastructure,” states the Agrimin press release.

Currently, designs for the process plant are being reviewed following the completion of process modeling.

As mentioned, the recent contract granting isn’t the only news from the Australian potash company this month. On July 8, Agrimin announced plans to extend its specialty potash product range beyond its current roster.

Agrimin will now offer a sulfate of potash magnesia (SOPM) product, ideal for use on high-value crops such as fruits, vegetables and tree nuts, as well as for use on pasture for livestock.

“We are excited to expand and diversify our product range with a high-quality SOPM fertilizer. Based on five years of engagement with the fertilizer industry, we believe this product has excellent market potential, especially in Agrimin’s key target markets,” said Mark Savich, CEO of Agrimin.

“A broader product range will allow Agrimin to adapt its product mix to suit market demand and to build strong brand value for our products. Ultimately, we expect this to deliver greater market share over the long-term,” he continued.

Lastly, the month started positively for the sulfate of potash and SOPM producer, as it was able to pen a memorandum of understanding with Parna Ngururrpa — the registered native title body representing the title holders for the land in and around Mackay.

The agreement covers the construction of a haul road and borefield, as well as the expansion of brine extraction infrastructure.

In an announcement, Tom Lyons, general manager of Agrimin, pointed out the potential the project will bring to the area in terms of infrastructure development and employment. He also cited the need to work alongside the native title holders to “protect and preserve their country and culture.”

Shares of Agrimin were down 2.86 percent on Wednesday (July 17), trading at AU$0.68.

So far there are no clear indicators as to when or if Australia could legalise recreational cannabis, but attitudes seem to be changing. Public support is growing, and there’s even some political acceptance.

Read on to learn more about when Australia may legalise recreational cannabis.

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:
