Media Release: Chatham Rock Phosphate attends PDAC

Chatham Rock Phosphate is once again an exhibitor at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada convention, the world’s largest minerals investment and trade show being held in Toronto Canada next week. 

“It is THE place where the mining industry talks turkey and does business, this year we have secured a speaking slot and will be presenting the Chatham project to both Canadian and international investors“ CRP Managing Director Chris Castle said today.

 He has attended the mining show for more than twelve years and this year secured a prime booth position among the 1,000-plus in the investor exhibition area. 

Government agency New Zealand Petroleum and Minerals, together with GNS Science, are also operating a booth to promote New Zealand minerals projects and investment. 

Mr Castle is hosting the CRP booth with Cam McKenzie, of Kenex Information Systems, who provide a range of geological and database management services to Chatham.  The booth is providing a focus for people wanting to learn more about CRP’s innovative deep sea mining project.  The convention is mid-way through its four day programme and there has been a steady flow of visitors to the Chatham booth.

 “Investor interest here is certainly more focused now that potential international investors are aware that Chatham is listing on the Canadian market TSX.V by means of the announced merger with Antipodes Gold. This is gratifying because it is precisely why we are proceeding with the merger” 

CRP’s technical partner Royal Boskalis is also displaying information on its capability.

PDAC has been running since 1932 and the annual convention now has more than 1000 exhibitors and 500 speakers.  The 30,000 people who come from more than 120 different countries attend hundreds of presentations, courses, workshops and technical sessions during the four-day event.

CRP holds a strategic, multi-million tonne organic rock phosphate deposit uniquely positioned to access Asian and Australasian fertiliser markets.  It was granted a 20-year mining licence in 2013
