Mesa Acquires Potash Projects
| ||Mesa Exploration Corp. (TSX-V: MSA) has acquired the White Mountain Potash Project in western Utah consisting of approximately 1,700 acres of Federal Potash Permit Applications.|
Potash occurs at the White Mountain project in the mineral alunite. The commercial products from alunite are potash, as sulfate of potassium ("SOP"), sulfuric acid and alumina. The potential deposit is shallow and would be mined by low-cost surface mining methods. The area is accessed by well- maintained gravel roads, supports year round work and is 12 miles from the Union Pacific Railroad.
Additionally, Mesa has filed for 350 acres of Federal Potash Permit Applications consisting of approximately 7% of the Blawn Mountain alunite deposit, the largest known alunite deposit in North America. Both Blawn Mountain and White Mountain will be evaluated this year by surface sampling, mapping and historic data reviews.
Mesa has elected not to pursue the Pine Valley alunite project (see News Release dated August 25, 2010) which is located 4 miles to the west of White Mountain.
