Agricultural Commodities

Agricultural minerals, or fertilizers, are bulk commodities with world wide trade patterns. No living organism can exist without phosphorus, potassium, or nitrogen. Phosphorous must be present in adequate amounts in living cells for cell division to take place.

Agricultural Commodities

  • Phosphate -   A phosphate, in inorganic chemistry, is a salt of phosphoric acid. Phosphates are also important in biochemistry and biogeochemistry.

  • Potash -   Potash (or carbonate of potash) is an impure form of potassium carbonate (K2CO3) mixed with other potassium salts. Potash has been used since antiquity in the manufacture of glass and soap and as a fertilizer. The name comes from the English words pot and ash, referring to its discovery in the water-soluble fraction of wood ash. The term has become somewhat ambiguous due to the substitution in fertilizers of cheaper potassium salts, such as potassium chloride (KCl) or potassium oxide (K2O), to which the same common name is now sometimes also applied. In addition, potassium hydroxide (KOH) is commonly called caustic potash, an additional source of confusion.

  • Nitrogen -   Is a chemical element which has the symbol N and atomic number 7. Elemental nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and mostly inert diatomic gas at standard conditions, constituting 78.1% by volume of Earth's atmosphere. Nitrogen is a constituent element of all living tissues and amino acids. Many industrially important compounds, such as ammonia, nitric acid, and cyanides, contain nitrogen.

North Arrow Discovers Diamonds at the Mel Project, Nunavut
Mon, 16 Oct 2017 08:30:00 EDT

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 16, 2017) - North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: NAR) is pleased to report the discovery of diamonds at the Company's 100% owned Mel Diamond Project on the Melville Peninsula, Nunavut. Highlights of this announcement include:

  • Diamondiferous kimberlite float, including pieces up to 0.50 m in size, has been identified over a 100 m extent within, and to the north of, a small lake near the up-ice termination of a well-defined kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) train. This discovery is herein referred to as the ML-8 kimberlite;
  • A 62.1 kg sample of the ML-8 kimberlite has returned 23 diamonds larger than the 0.106 mm sieve size, including a single, colourless diamond larger than the 0.85 mm sieve size;
  • The ML-8 kimberlite discovery is coincident with an identified airborne magnetic geophysical anomaly that straddles the northern shoreline of the 200 m by 400 m lake;
  • A number of additional geophysical targets, coincident with permissive topographic areas, have been identified near the up ice termination of unexplained KIM trains within the property and, along with ML-8, will be drilled tested in 2018.

Ken Armstrong, President and CEO of North Arrow commented, "As we thought possible, detailed prospecting of the well-defined KIM trains at Mel has led to the discovery of kimberlite and diamonds - the second discovery by North Arrow of a diamondiferous kimberlite field in Canada. Delineation and exploration drilling of the ML-8 discovery and other identified targets is now planned for 2018 and will benefit from sharing logistics and infrastructure with North Arrow's ongoing evaluation of the Q1-4 kimberlite at the Naujaat Diamond Project."
