08-14 - Cornerstone acquires property with potash potential
Mount Pearl, NL, Canada: Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc.
(TSXV-CGP) (F-GWN) (B-GWN) (OTC-CTNFN) today announced further
expansion of its Codroy project in southwestern Newfoundland. An
additional 480 map staked claims were acquired by staking bringing the
total land position to 956 claims (238 square km). The new claims
cover favourable geology with demonstrated potential for salt and
potash (Codroy Location -
The Codroy project, underlain by Carboniferous age sedimentary rocks of
the Bay St. George Basin, was initially acquired to explore for
sediment hosted, stratiform copper deposits and uranium deposits.
However, the area is also highly prospective for salt and potash and
Cornerstone is now focusing attention on evaluation of that potential.
The new claims cover geological units of the Codroy Group which host
numerous gypsum, anhydrite and potassium salt prospects throughout the
Bay St. George Basin, and which are also stratigraphically equivalent
to the Windsor Group of the Maritime Provinces which host the
world-class potash deposits near Sussex New Brunswick. Cornerstone is
also exploring for copper, uranium and potash in the same geological
environment in New Brunswick.
Colin McKenzie, Cornerstone's President and CEO, stated "Cornerstone
has considerable expertise in exploring the mineral potential of
sedimentary basins through its experience in the search for sediment
hosted copper deposits whose geological environments are often also
prospective for uranium, salt and potash. The staking we are
announcing today gives us the opportunity to use that expertise in the
search for potash in three locations that are all within the broader
Maritimes Sedimentary Basin."
