South Boulder Mines Limited (ASX:STB) New Potash Discovery Continues To Deliver Shallow Potash
- 1.10m of carnallitite from 30.41m and;
- 9.43m of kainitite from 31.51m.
- 5.51m of sylvinite from 35.70m and;
- 0.93m of carnallitite from 41.21m and;
- 9.17m of kainitite from 41.93m.
- 3.25m of sylvinite from 82.65m and;
- 5.04m of carnallitite from 85.90m and;
- 7.04m of kainitite from 90.94m.
Preliminary geological logging of all the holes has indicated that the sylvinite (KCl) mineralisation appears to be very similar to high grade intervals that have been identified at the Colluli Resource. Grades up to 44% KCl have been intersected within the Colluli Resource.
The carnallite intersected contains the sulphate mineral kieserite (MgSO4.H2O) which is a mineral used for large scale production of SOP (K2SO4).
Further definition and extensional drilling at the new area is planned to resume soon after Easter and a scheduled rig maintenance/field break.
Once resumed, drilling activity will focus on the general area. The proposed hole locations will initially explore a priority area of approximately 20km2.
It is expected the new discovery will significantly enhance the Colluli project economics that are currently under scoping study and become part of the full feasibility study.
The samples will be dispatched for assaying as soon as possible once all South Boulder standard quality control and quality assurance procedures have been completed. Details on further exploration will be released as they come to hand.

About the Nickel Joint Venture
The Duketon Nickel JV has had recent success at The Rosie and C2 Nickel sulphide prospects where drilling has defined intercepts of 5.20m @ 9.13% Ni, 1.09% Cu, 0.21% Co and 7.09g/t PGE's at Rosie and 50m @ 0.92% Ni including 37m @ 1.05% Ni at C2. The deposits are located approximately 120km NNW of Laverton, W.A in the Duketon Greenstone Belt. The deposits are approximately 2km apart and the mineralisation at both prospects is considered open in most directions. A Mining Lease was granted over the Rosie and C2 deposits on the 19th of November. A resource definition and exploration drilling program and scoping study into an open pit mine at C2 and an underground mine at Rosie is underway.
