Here is an example of an extreme P deficiency in a corner of a research field in Storrs, Connecticut (courtesy of Dr. Tom Morris, University of Connecticut). The
 photo was taken July 27, 1999.  The two tall rows of corn on the right received 30 lb P2O5/A in a band 2 in. above and to the side of the seed row. The six rows
on the left and center did not receive any P fertilizer. Note the complete absence of purpling despite the strong P deficiency. Phosphorus is present in every living
cell in both plants and animals and is essential to the process of photosynthesis in plants. As such, phosphorus, among other fertilizers, is essential to plant
 growth. Plants absorb phosphorus through the soil as various forms of phosphate. Nitrogen and Potassium are the only other nutrients.

    Sterling Group Ventures, Inc. ("Sterling") is a natural resource company headquartered in Vancouver, Canada. Sterling signed two agreements (the "Agreements") with Chenxi County Hongyu Mining Co. Ltd. ("Hongyu") and its shareholders ("Hongyu Shareholders") regarding the Gaoping phosphate mine (the "GP Property') located in Tanjiaxiang, Chenxi County, Hunan Province, China and other phosphate resources in Hunan Province. There are about 75.7 million shares outstanding which are quoted on the Quality Board (QB) of the electronic system of OTCMarkets (OTCQB) under the symbol SGGV and on the Berlin Bremen Stock Exchange under the symbol GD7 .

    Hongyu is a Chinese private mining company with connections and resources in Hunan, China. Hongyu is interested in exploring, developing and expanding its phosphate business.

The mining permit is 0.425 square kilometers above an elevation of 510 meters. The phosphate is a sedimentary deposit and occurs at the Jinjiadong Formation of Upper Sinian. The mining permit allows initial production up to 100,000 tonnes of phosphate ore per year. The Inferred Resource is 2,190,000 tonnes of 22.58% P2O5 within the mining permit.
