Danakali Ltd (ASX:DNK ) (LON:DNK) has welcomed the United Nations’ (UN) decision to lift the arms embargo and targeted sanctions imposed on the East African country of Eritrea since December 23, 2009.

Danakali is focused on the development of the world-class Colluli Sulphate of Potash (SOP) Project in Eritrea.

Colluli is 100% owned by the Colluli Mining Share Company (CMSC), a 50:50 joint venture between Danakali and the Eritrean National Mining Corporation.

The deposit comprises a massive ore reserve estimate of 1.1 billion tonnes grading 10.5% potassium oxide for 203 million tonnes of contained SOP equivalent.

Front end engineering design (FEED) has confirmed a post-tax net present value of US$902 million and post-tax internal rate of return (IRR) of 29.9% for the Colluli project.
