The estimated total resource at Lake Way has now increased to 73 million tonnes of SOP calculated using total porosity and 8.2 million tonnes of SOP calculated using drainable porosity.
The new resource will enable Salt Lake Potash to finalise technical studies for a larger production scenario with an anticipated release date towards the end of Q2 2019.
Meanwhile, construction of the first phase of the Lake Way Evaporation Ponds is progressing well.
The Lake Way Ponds will be the first commercial scale on-lake sulphate of potash (SOP) evaporation ponds in Australia.
The first phase will enable de-watering of the Lake Way Williamson Pit that contains the highest grade brine resource in Australia.
