Harvest Minerals Limited ('Harvest' or the 'Company')

Hosting First Strategic Meeting for Soil Remineralisers


Harvest Minerals Limited, the AIM listed fertiliser producer, is pleased to announce that on Tuesday 23rd July, it is hosting the first Strategic Meeting for Soil Remineralisers and New Agriculture at the Centro Universitário de Patos de Minas ('UNIPAM'), Brasil.  


Focused on sustainable agriculture and the role of new agricultural inputs such as KPfértil, the meeting will feature lectures by executives and industry experts including representatives of Harvest, EMBAPA Cerrados, the research unit of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply ('MAPA') and Superintendencia Regional de Regularização Ambiental ('SUPRAM'), the environmental agency of Minas Gerais State.


Harvest's Executive Chairman, Brian McMaster, said, "KPfértil, our natural organic product, has many advantages over traditional fertilisers, not least of which is its ability to reverse many of the detrimental effects of long-term intensive farming.  By using KPfértil we can help farmers adopt sustainable agricultural practices, which are critical in combating global climate change. We are therefore pleased to host the first strategic meeting on remineralisers and expect around 250 industry professionals and farmers to attend."


Further details can be found on the KPfértil website https://www.kpfertil.net.br/evento-24-07-19 or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/kpfertil/

Harvest Minerals (HMI.L) is a Brazilian focused fertiliser producer advancing the 100% owned Arapua Fertiliser Project, which produces KPfértil, a proven, multi-nutrient, slow release, organic, MAPA-certified remineraliser.  KPfértil offers many economic and agronomic benefits and addresses the significant demand for locally produced fertiliser in Brazil, with its abundant agricultural land; currently, the country imports 90% of the potash it uses but has a target to be self-sufficient in fertilisers by 2020.  Covering 14,946 hectares and located in the heart of the Brazilian agriculture belt in Minas Gerais, Arapua is a shallow, low cost mine with an indicated and inferred resource of 13.07Mt at 3.1% K2O and 2.49% P2O5.  This is based on drilling just 6.7% of the known mineralisation, leaving significant upside potential. This resource is equivalent over 29 years' production and the known mineralisation expected to support 100+ years' production at 450,000 tonnes per annum.
