Kalium Lakes receives green light for WA sulphate of potash project

Kalium Lakes has received Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) approval relating to the proposal and mining closure plan for its Beyondie sulphate of potash project (BSOPP) in Western Australia.

The BSOPP hosts Australia’s highest-grade sulphate of potash (SOP) brine deposit, with a probable reserve of 2.66 million tonnes (Mt) at 14.2kg per cubic metre SOP.

The BSOPP aims to produce 150,000 tonnes (t) of SOP per year for domestic and international sale.

The approval of DMIRS, coupled with the consent of the Environmental Protection Authority of Western Australia (EPA) that Kalium Lakes received in May, allows it to construct, operate and maintain several project upgrades.

These upgrades cover its BSOPP workshop, site access road, communication towers, accommodation camp and wastewater treatment plant.

Managing director Brett Hazelden said that the approvals have paved the way for Kalium Lakes to undertake its early works construction activities this year.

In June 2018, Kalium Lakes was granted two mining leases for the BSOPP. The company is now processing the remaining approvals for the BSOPP. Read more…
