Harvest Minerals (HMI.L) owns the Arapua Fertiliser Project in Brazil, which produces and sells KPfértil, a proven, multi-nutrient, slow release, natural fertiliser and remineraliser, that offers many economic and agronomic benefits.  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 resource translates into a mine life of over 100 years at a rate of 450k tonnes per annum and crucially is based on drilling just 6.7% of the known mineralisation, leaving significant upside potential.  Given that Brazil currently imports 90% of the fertiliser it uses but has set a target to be self-sufficient in fertilisers by 2020, Harvest is ideally placed to address the increasing demand for locally produced fertiliser.
