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.

Anfield Resources Discloses Conceptual Vanadium Exploration Target at its Velvet-Wood Mine

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 13, 2017) - Anfield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ARY) (OTCQB: ANLDF) (FRANKFURT: 0AD) ("Anfield" or "the Company") announces a conceptual vanadium exploration target at its Velvet-Wood Mine, located in Utah. BRS Engineering, Inc. has completed an Exploration Target report, entitled "Velvet-Wood Vanadium Exploration Target, National Instrument 43-101, Utah, U.S.A.", with effective date of December 11, 2017 (the "Velvet-Wood Vanadium Report") which provides a vanadium exploration target of between 6.3Mlbs and 9.7Mlbs at a grade of between 0.4% V2O5 and 0.61% V2O5. BRS is a consulting and engineering firm with nearly 40 years of experience assessing both uranium and vanadium projects. The potential quantities and grades, as stated below, are conceptual in nature and have been approximated. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource for vanadium. Furthermore, it is uncertain if additional exploration will result in the exploration target being delineated as a mineral resource.
