WELLINGTON New Zealand – Chatham Rock Phosphate Limited, “CRP” or “the Company” (TSXV: “NZP”, NZX: “CRP” FSE “3GRE”) wishes to announce that the Korella North mine development is advancing rapidly with both mine planning and marketing activities well underway.


Following preparation of the geological model for Korella North, first mine plans to produce 250,000 tonnes per annum from the now defined 5 million tonne deposit have been completed.


Detailed topographic mapping of Korella North will commence this week, to enable the design of on-site roads as well as the rail crossing to connect the mine site to the paved Phosphate Hill to Cloncurry Road.


At the Cloncurry phosphate distribution hub, the contract with Ergon Energy has been signed to relocate a major power line clearing the way for unfettered access for on-site storage and processing operations.


This week, Korella Fertilizers attended the Northern Australia Food Future Conference in Darwin and it was evident that there is significant interest by Northern Australia farmers in Korella North’s direct- application 20% P2O5 phosphate rock.


Phosphate deficient Northern Australia is awakening to increasing cropping activities that include vast areas of dry land and irrigated cotton.


Some 500 people with direct connection to farming in the Top End of Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia attended the four-day conference.


Korella North phosphate provides for Northern Australia farmers the economic and secure alternative to imported fertilizers.
