Ashburton Ventures Inc. has provided an update on a recent site visit at the BC Bud Depot research and development facility on Salt Spring Island, B.C., site of a continuing scientific study of the effects zeolite and carbon on cannabis yields and quality.

Ashburton directors met with facility owners and management to view progress of cannabis trials. The owner of the 1,900-plant facility requested, based on the healthy appearance of plants grown with zeolite, an ongoing supply of clinoptilolite zeolite from Ashburton's Z1 Zeolite Mine near Cache Creek, BC. However this request remains subject to the final results of the study,

Biologist and plantation manager Albert Kasprowicz stated, "It's still early, but the plants amended with 15% zeolite appear to have growth rates significantly surpassing the greenhouse average."

Ashburton's Zeolite from the Z-1 Quarry in Cache Creek is believed to enhance plant health by increasing the bioavailability of nutrients and filtering contaminants from the soil. Plants with increased nutrient uptake and a reduced burden on their immune system focus more energy on growth and productivity.

Ashburton President David Gdanski stated, "The cannabis industry is taking note of zeolite's natural capacity to provide a competitive edge in terms of yields and quality. We're now compiling a client list that includes growers at the forefront of innovation in BC's cannabis industry."

Ashburton Ventures Inc. is a Canadian-based junior exploration company focused on Canadian mineral projects in Quebec and British Columbia, Canada
