“We are excited to have Cathy join us at this very important time and look forward to her bringing her equity capital markets background and network to the APC team.”
Developing SOP project
APC holds a 100% interest in the Lake Wells SOP Project (LSOP) about 500 kilometres northeast of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia's Eastern Goldfields.
Following the release of a definitive feasibility study (DFS) in August 2019, APC is focused on the Front-end Engineering Design (FEED) Study, finalising offtake discussions and securing financing to develop the LSOP.
The DFS was underpinned by extensive and rigorous test-work, data, and modelling. It confirmed that the LSOP will be a long-life, low-capital and high-margin SOP producer.
