About Highfield Resources
Highfield Resources is an ASX listed potash company which is focusing on the construction of its flagship low cost, low capex Muga Project in Spain having now received all permits and key licences needed. With the Mining Concession being granted in July 2021, the ramp construction licence in Aragón in June 2022 and the process plant construction licence in Navarra in March 2023. Following the finalisation of the initial site preparatory work of the mine gate and decline area, full scale construction is expected to commence in early 2024.

Muga is a unique project – with shallow mineralization with no aquifers above it there is no need to build a shaft. There is quality and readily accessible infrastructure already in place in the region and importantly, the Muga Project is located in the heart of a European agricultural region which has a clear deficit in potash supply. In addition to Muga’s secure southern European location, since February 2022 events in Russia and Belarus have heightened the awareness of the strategic value of the Muga Project for both Spain and the European Union.

Highfield’s potash tenements (Muga-Vipasca, Pintanos, and Sierra del Perdón) are located in the Ebro potash producing basin in Northern Spain, covering an area of around 250km2.
