WELLINGTON New Zealand – Chatham Rock Phosphate Limited, “CRP” or “the Company” (TSXV: “NZP”, NZX: “CRP” FSE “3GRE”) advises that our CEO Chris Castle, in company with Cloncurry-based Executive Director Colin Randall and Field Manager Maurice March visited all Korella sites last week.


Accompanying them was Lindsay Crutch from consulting firm WSP who is assisting in the Mining Lease Application for Korella North and is the independent leader for the Pre-Feasibility Study for the 2Mtpa Korella South project.


Chris was also able to meet with elders of the Yulluna people who are the Native Title holders for both Korella North and Korella South.

During the 2-day visit inspections were made of the sites for the Cloncurry Distribution Hub and Korella MCP’s monocalcium phosphate plant.

Chris Castle commented, “This was a most instructive visit to the sites of our multiple proposed mining projects at Korella and the distribution hub and MCP plant at Cloncurry. Probably the most striking feature was the huge competitive advantage our projects have being adjacent to the railway. Not for us trucking rock phosphate huge distances across flood vulnerable roads and expensive double handling of our product. Our initial flagship project, Korella North, is a short walk from the train tracks”.
