Reward Minerals Ltd (ASX:RWD) has now submitted the Environmental Review Document for the Lake Disappointment Sulphate of Potash Project to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) of Western Australia.
The document will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the environmental scoping guidelines established by the EPA in late October 2016.
After this initial review the EPA will provide feedback to Reward so that the document can be updated prior to being authorised for public release.
A six-week public review period will follow.
The Lake Disappointment Project is potentially the world’s largest and one of the highest-grade sulphate of potash deposits, and is positioned in a high evaporation location.
Greg Cochran, Reward’s recently appointed chief executive officer, commented:
"We welcome another landmark for the LD Project and are looking forward to engaging with the regulators and community during the assessment period.
"I would like to thank our committed team of consultants who have done an outstanding job in completing all the supporting studies and reports that ultimately made up the full assessment.
"I’d also like to acknowledge the role of the regulators in providing us regular feedback and guidance."
