TABJ – African Potash, the AIM listed exploration company focused on sub-Saharan potash assets, has commenced drilling its first hole at the Company’s Lac Dinga Potash Project in the Republic of Congo.  This initial hole is the first of a two hole rotary/core drilling programme and is planned to a depth of 500m below surface.  The drilling programme will test two high-priority targets which are interpreted to have potential for high-grade potash mineralisation based on the interpretation of seismic data.

African Potash CEO, Edward Marlow, said, “Lac Dinga, which is located in a world-class potash bearing region, has to date demonstrated the potential to host significant high-grade sylvinite tonnage at attractive depths.  The objective of this maiden drilling campaign is to improve our understanding of the asset and provide a basis for evaluation of the resource potential of this highly strategic asset.  I look forward to providing further information regarding the advancement of this drilling campaign in due course.”
