Arianne Phosphate Inc. (OTCMKTS: DRRSF) is a promising phosphate mining company located in Quebec, Canada. The company’s Lac à Paul project is a response to the growing global demand for phosphate – historically, the global demand for phosphate increases by 2% to 3% each year, with demand driven primarily by its use in agriculture. Demand will likely be considerably higher when LFP batteries are taken into account, and the Lac à Paul project is a fully permitted, shovel-ready project.

Arianne’s is a world-class mining site and is the single largest greenfield deposit of phosphate. One major edge Arianne has is the deposit is igneous which allows it to produce a concentrate higher than 90% of the world’s phosphate, which is housed in sedimentary rock. This allows Arianne to produce a high-purity and low-contaminant phosphate concentrate ideal for use in batteries and fertilizer.

Arianne Phosphate recently announced a significant addition to its advisory team, reinforcing its already impressive executive lineup. Mark Edinger, a seasoned professional with 15 years of experience at Nutrien Ltd. and its predecessor Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, will be joining the company as an advisor. As the former Director of Phosphate Commercial and Product Management Teams at Nutrien, Edinger possesses a wealth of knowledge in global marketing of phosphate product lines, granting him a deep understanding of market participants, economics and the industry landscape.

Edinger's arrival is a major boost for Arianne. Having held a senior position in Nutrien's phosphate division as Director of Commercial and Product Management, he not only possesses extensive connections within the industry but also possesses extensive expertise in high-purity liquids (PPA) that are essential for LFP batteries. This strategic addition to Arianne's team signals a significant accomplishment for the company.

“Over the years, I have watched Arianne advance its Lac à Paul deposit from a grass roots exploration asset to, what is today, one of the most significant phosphate deposits in the world,” said Edinger. “Aside from its size and geopolitically safe jurisdiction, Arianne will produce a very high-purity, low-contaminant phosphate that will be required to meet the world’s growing demand. Further, as Arianne has already demonstrated, their phosphate is ideal for the materials required for the LFP battery, a market that will significantly increase the importance of the Arianne deposit. I am very excited to be part of this project and use my knowledge and contacts to see it come to fruition.”

The inclusion of Mark Edinger and other experienced advisors should provide considerable reassurance to investors. While investors may not possess in-depth knowledge of phosphate-related nuances such as geology, metallurgy and product use, the expertise of Edinger and his colleagues instills confidence in the project. The fact that professionals of their caliber want to collaborate with Arianne also speaks to the company's potential.

“I worked closely with Mark for many years at Nutrien and look forward to repeating our success at Arianne,” said Raef Sully, former CEO of Nutrien’s Phosphate and Nitrogen divisions and member of the Arianne Board of Directors, who joined Arianne earlier this year. “Aside from their significant phosphate fertilizer operations, Nutrien also produces purified phosphoric acid, the material required for industrial applications as well as the LFP battery. Mark and I both know first-hand the opportunities for high-purity market and believe that Arianne can be the major player in this market; we look forward to advancing it.”

Arianne Phosphate seems well poised to become a strong supplier of phosphate to multiple industries in the region that otherwise have to look to foreign countries for phosphate supply. And when it comes to investing in a phosphate supplier, Arianne’s 12-year history, strong leadership and quality mean it stands strong amongst the limited companies in the sector.


ARIANNE PHOSPHATE INC. ( owns the Lac à Paul phosphate deposit in Quebec, Canada. Fully permitted and shovel ready, the asset is among the world’s largest greenfield deposits, capable of producing an environmentally friendly phosphate concentrate. Due to the nature of its high-purity, low-contaminant product, Arianne’s phosphate can be used to produce fertilizer as well as meeting the technical requirements of specialty applications such as the lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery. The Lac à Paul deposit is rare due to its geographic location and geological structure. Arianne Phosphate is listed on both the TSX-V: DAN and the OTCQX: DRRSF.
