Trigg Mining (TMG) has announced its high-grade Lake Throssell sulphate of potash (SOP) project is set to receive a hefty infrastructure boost.
This news comes off the back of the Western Australia Federal and State Governments announcing a $20 million contract to Wongutha Way Alliance, a joint venture between CareyMC and Central Earthmoving Company.
The money will go towards sealing a 41-kilometre section of the Great Central Road towards Trigg’s project.
The Great Central Road is a key route that runs from Leonora and Laverton, through the Lake Throssell tenements, and onwards through the Northern Territory to Winton in Queensland.
Trigg is pleased with the announcement, as its Lake Throssell project is expected to have significantly improved access and future logistics in terms of the transport of people, equipment, materials and product to and from the project.
The contract is aimed at providing interstate connectivity for tourists, communities and the freight industry, provide support for the regional economy, and forms part of a longer-term planned upgrade of the ‘Outback Way.’
Essentially, the project will create Australia’s first Transcontinental Highway, providing a sealed route from Western Australia to Winton in Queensland.
This initiative is jointly funded between the Australian Government ($37.2 million
commitment) and the West Australian Government ($9.3 million).
“This week’s announcement from the WA Government regarding upgrades to the Great Central Road further highlights the outstanding position of the Lake Throssell Sulphate of Potash Project in a world-class mining province,” Managing Director Keren Paterson said.
Field activities and exploration have taken a hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions but WA has recently announced some intrastate travel restrictions will be lifted.
Meetings are scheduled with the Traditional Owners of the Lake Throssell Project to discuss access arrangements for the company’s field exploration teams.
If this gets approved, Trigg will conduct a maiden drilling program at Lake Throssell targeting a JORC resource. Drilling is expected to commence in the September quarter.
Based on a recent gravity survey, several targets were defined. Trigg believes these targets have strong potential for large-scale SOP mineralisation.
