Lac Dinga Project

Block Commodities is interested in the exploration side of the fertiliser industry through its 70% interest in La Societe des Potasses et des Mines S.A. ('SPM'), which holds the exclusive right to conduct mining research activities for potash salts over the 555 sq km Lac Dinga Project Area ('Lac Dinga' or the 'Project') in the Republic of Congo.

Lake DingaLac Dinga is located in a highly prospective area, extending 57km NW-SE in the Kouilou region. The Project is adjacent to the Dougou Potash Deposit, part of the Sintoukola Potash Permit held by Elemental Minerals Limited (ASX/TSX: ELM) and the Makola licence of Evergreen Resources Holdings (BVI) Ltd. The Dougou Potash Deposit has a JORC compliant Measured and Indicated mineral resource of 1.1Bt grading 20.6% KCl.

A drilling campaign was undertaken in Q3 2014 and results received from assays confirmed the presence of multiple potash seams.

The analytical results for the two completed exploration drill holes (LDDH_001 and LDDH_002) on conceptual targets identified from seismic data confirmed the presence of potash mineralisation over significant thicknesses with individual sample grades of up to 25% KCl (~15.8% K2O). The results confirmed laterally extensive potash mineralisation which is characteristic of the Congolese coastal basin and further underpins the Project's potential to host significant potash deposits. About 250km2 of the licence area is interpreted to be underlain by salt-bearing strata which occurs at depths of about 300m to 420m below surface and mineralogical studies confirm that the potash seams are partially converted to sylvite mineralisation.
