Sustainable Engineering Solutions Program for Salt Damaged Soils in Northern Alberta Continues

ZMM Canada Minerals Corp. (ZMM) is pleased to announce continued sponsorship of research on soil remediation using Z-1 Zeolite. In early April 2018, additional Z-1 Zeolite from the Z1 Quarry at Cache Creek, BC, was shipped to Dr. Jean-Marie Sobze of Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) to continue the research on Z-1 Zeolite’s efficacy in reclamation of salt contaminated soils.  This program’s intention is to test novel approaches to enhance and improve existing technologies to meet the demands of reclaiming naturally saline soil in northern Alberta.

“This is the second year that Z-1 Zeolites have been used in this research project supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).  We believe this speaks highly of the efficacy of Z-1 zeolites in soil remediation efforts.” states Steve Harpur, CEO of Ashburton Ventures Inc. (ABR).

The work is being conducted by the Boreal Research Institute of NAIT with industry partners Paramount Resources (ACL) Ltd., ZMM, Alberta Economic Development and Trade, and Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

“To be a part of developing these breakthrough technologies utilizing zeolites embodies our core values. This project exemplifies this, and we are very pleased with the progress to date” stated Verne Hogg, CEO of ZMM.

ZMM acknowledges the support of NSERC, which annually invests over $1 billion in people, discovery and innovation.
