WELLINGTON, New Zealand, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Chatham Rock Phosphate Limited (TSXV: "NZP" and NZAX: "CRP" or the "Company") wishes to advise that we will again have a strategically located booth in the Investors Exchange in the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) annual conference being staged in Toronto in the first week of March.
PDAC is reputedly the largest mining investment show in the world, attracting in excess of 30,000 investor attendees and has proved to be a most successful venue for Chatham in the past.
The New Zealand Government has long recognised the significance of this marketing opportunity and NZPaM and GNS Science will again be there hosting an enlarged booth and presenting the NZ minerals estate to the world in an Investment Showcase to be held on Tuesday 6th March. Chatham will be presenting in the Explorer's Experience Session.
Attendance at PDAC 2018 is only a small part of Chatham's present drive to raise further capital in order to reapply for an environmental permit to accompany the mining permit we were granted in 2013. Presentations will be shared next week with groups of existing and possible investors in Munich, Zurich, Montreal and Toronto building on multiple road shows in those locations last year.
More TV Coverage
We also wish to advise that an interview of our CEO (to be filmed while we attend PDAC) will be shown again on selected Canadian TV channels in forthcoming months. We will advise more details soon and the clip will again be on the home page of our website.
About Chatham Rock Phosphate
Chatham Rock Phosphate is the custodian of New Zealand's only material resource of ultra-low cadmium, environmentally friendly pastoral phosphate fertiliser. Our key role is connecting the resource with those who need it.
Using this phosphate will support sustainable farming practices, including healthier soils and reduced accumulation of the heavy metal cadmium, reducing carbon emissions and dramatically lowering runoff to waterways and shrinking fertiliser needs over time.
The resource represents one of New Zealand's most valuable mineral assets and is of huge strategic significance because phosphate is essential to maintain New Zealand's high agricultural productivity.
New Zealand's current access to phosphate is vulnerable to economic and political events in the six countries controlling 98% of the world's phosphate reserves, with 85% of the total in the Western Saharan state of Morocco.
Chatham takes very seriously the responsibility vested in it through its mining permit to use the world's best knowledge and technology to safely extract this resource to help sustainably feed the world.
Our initial environmental consenting process independently established extraction would have no significant impact on fishing yields or profitability, marine mammals or seabirds.
We will be at PDAC from 4th to 7th March. Please visit us at Booth # 2752 in the Investors Exchange.
Neither the Exchange, its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined under the policies of the Exchange), or NZX Limited has in any way passed upon the merits of the Transaction and associated transactions, and has neither approved nor disapproved of the contents of this press release.
