Chatham Rock Phosphate Limited (TSXV: NZP, NZAX: CRP): New Zealand’s Only Ultralow Cadmium, Environmentally Friendly Phosphate Fertilizer; Interview with Chris Castle, President and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Chatham Rock Phosphate Limited (TSXV: NZP, NZAX: CRP) is the custodian of New Zealand’s only material resource of ultralow cadmium, environmentally friendly pastoral phosphate fertilizer, and aims to be the premier supplier of direct application phosphate to the New Zealand and global agricultural sector. The low-cost resource located 400 meters under the water offshore New Zealand, represents one of New Zealand’s most valuable mineral assets and is of huge strategic significance because phosphate is essential to maintain New Zealand’s high agricultural productivity. We learned from Mr. Chris Castle, who's President and CEO of Chatham Rock Phosphate, that once they are fully permitted they will be able to operate in three or four years' time with no capital cost, and with established markets for their product in several countries of Asia-Pacific and Australasia, particularly India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Australia, and New Zealand. The recent decision of the European Union and European Council to put restrictions on the level of cancer-causing cadmium in phosphate excludes rock from most of the major phosphate exporters around the world and gives Chatham Rock Phosphate a huge advantage in the industry.
