Progressive Planet Solutions Inc (CVE:PLAN) (OTCMKTS:ASHXF) has received its largest order yet for its glacial moraine rock dust, the company announced Thursday.
The natural mineral product is used as a restorative additive to soil because it contains a number of minerals that often become depleted through modern farming.
The latest order contains 32 metric tons of the rock and is being shipped out on Thursday, the company said. According to CEO Steve Harpur, orders are ramping up.

"We continue to receive requests to supply rock dust and are utilizing an international engineering firm to conduct Bond Ball Mill Grindability Testing of a locally sourced glacial moraine rock which was selected for its excellent micronutrient profile,” Harpur said in a statement.
“We have also engaged mining engineers to assist in selecting equipment which will enable us to produce more of this product ourselves."
