READ: Salt Lake Potash begins BFS after Lake Way Potash scoping study shows commercial viability

Having completed a scoping study for a commercial scale 200,000 tonnes per annum SOP development, Salt Lake is focused on completing the BFS in quarter-three 2019.

Salt Lake Potash intends for Lake Way to be the first salt lake brine SOP production operation in Australia.

The scoping study was based on a mineral resource estimate amounting to 8.2 million tonnes of SOP calculated using drainable porosity and 73 million tonnes using total porosity.

Results indicate Lake Way would generate strong economic returns due to its low capital intensity bottom quartile operating costs and sustainable mining life.

Advanced discussions for development funding with a debt provider are continuing and the company is moving into front end engineering design, utilising experience gained from construction of the initial evaporation ponds.
