VANCOUVER, BC, – April. 11, 2023 – SAGE POTASH CORP. (TSXV: SAGE) (“Sage Potash” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce the expansion of its district-scale potash project situated in Utah’s prolific Paradox Basin, known to host extensive underdeveloped world-class potash resources (approximately 2 billion tons, according to the US Geological Survey).
Additionally to the previously disclosed land portfolio consisting of 83,000 acres of State and Private Mineral leases and BLM prospecting permit applications, the company has negotiated and agreed on terms for the acquisition of 5,118.78 acres of private leases.
The combined landholdings of the Sage Plain projects now totals 88,118.78 acres representing an increase of ~6% of the total land package.
Patricio Varas, Sage’s COO & VP of Exploration commented, “Due to the nature of potash deposits and the rather flat lying topography of the deposits – as evidenced by our 2D seismic data and correlated between the Johnson 1 exploration well and the Western Natural Gas well, located 2.2 km away – an increase in private leases will equate to an increase in the resources outlined in our 43-101 technical report.”
Sage’s CEO Peter Hogendoorn stated, “The magnitude of our land portfolio in the potash-rich Paradox Basin is amplified by today’s announcement. Securing a controlling interest in the private mineral rights adjacent to the Sage Plain Project and the Johnson 1 exploration well is a key step forward in the development of the project, giving not only the ability to increase our resource, but also plan for future surface infrastructure.”
