Using blackstrap molasses as a source of minerals

I usually use 4 TBSP per day. What are you thoughts on its mineral content and how much do you think I should use. It has over 700 mg potassium, 15% rda for iron, 115 mg calcium, around 50 mg magnesium(10% rda) .

That's pretty potent.

It's also going to a source of pesticide residue.

Blackstrap molasses is nutrient dense, but it is also a fairly large source if sugar.

Here is a list that has some of the most nutrient dense sources of iron.

If the sugar doesn't affect you, this isn't a terrible approach, but I personally would avoid the extra ~40g of sugar daily.
