Saksrithai potash project seismic survey begins

Published by
Global Mining Review,

Vatic Ventures Corp. has now commenced the first phase of its exploration and development project for the Saksrithai potash project in Thailand: a 2-D seismic survey of the license area.

The seismic programme is designed to demonstrate the continuity of the underlying geological structure and provide information regarding the depth to, and thickness of, the potash-bearing layer. The programme will consist of up to 40 line-kilometres of seismic survey.

Geocon Co. Ltd has mobilised its crew and equipment to the project area and has completed a 1 km test line to demonstrate the depth to the target horizons and determine the optimum geophone spacing for the survey.

Geocon has 30 years in potash exploration, with particular knowledge of the potash deposits within the Khorat evaporite basin where the Company's Sakarithai project is situated. Geocon has provided services to a number of potash projects in Thailand and Laos, including Asia Pacific Resources' successful project at Udon Thani, Thailand.

Dr. Gerry Wright, the Company's CEO, commented: "We are excited to commence the exploration of the Saksrithai potash project. The seismic survey will enhance our technical knowledge of the project area and facilitate planning for the initial drilling programme for the project".
