Mr. Costa has worked for the Saskatchewan Geological Survey, provided project management in uranium and diamond exploration, and most recently was the chief geologist for Brazil Potash a private company with operations surrounding the majority of Pacific Potash’s Claims.

  • Soils in Brazil are deficient in potassium and require potash to remain productive
  • The Amazonas potash basin is similar in geology and dimension to the Saskatchewan potash basin in Canada
  • Recently signed non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with CapitalAsia Investment Holdings Group sets out the initial terms and conditions for entering into a formal off-take agreement at such time as Pacific Potash’s Amazonas Potash Property goes into commercial production.
