ATCO MINING IDENTIFIES AT LEAST ONE SALT STRUCTURE SUITABLE FOR HYDROGEN STORAGE ON ITS FLAT BAY SALT PROJECT IN SW NEWFOUNDLAND & ENGAGES MILESTONE CAPITAL PARTNERS FOR INVESTOR RELATIONS IN EUROPE
Atco Mining Inc.'s contracted consultant partner, Respec Consulting, has completed an analysis of the previously announced 2-D seismic interpretation on the Flat Bay salt project, located in southwestern Newfoundland. Respec located at least one salt structure prospective for halite exploration, the mineral form of sodium chloride or road salt, and potentially suitable for hydrogen salt dome cavern development.
The gravity and 2-D seismic data show the potential presence of a salt structure within the project boundary; the maximum thickness of the salt structure is identified to be approximately 1,700 metres within the Flat Bay project site. Based on the depth and thickness of the salt strata identified from the gravity and 2-D seismic surveys, hydrogen storage salt caverns exceeding a storage volume of two million square metres could potentially be developed within the property.
Respec is currently working on building a 3-D geological model of the salt structure from the gravity and 2-D seismic data. The 3-D model will be used for the following:
The placement of future core well locations;
- Defining the dimensions of the salt structure;
- Estimating the potential number of salt caverns that could be developed within the property;
- Estimating the potential amount of hydrogen that could be stored in salt caverns in the project area.
Jai Duhan, subsurface energy storage consultant at Respec, comments: "The gravity and 2-D seismic data show the potential presence of a thick salt structure suitable for hydrogen storage cavern development at Atco's Flat Bay project site. Respec is currently working on developing the 3-D geological model of the salt structure and is looking forward to assisting Atco in defining the appropriate next steps in its exploration program."
