Major project status will allow the project to receive additional government support. The status has been approved for a period of three years, which is the period that the company plans to advance the project through its approvals, project funding and construction phases.
Mark Savich, CEO of Agrimin said: “We are delighted to receive this support from the Australian federal government as we advance our strategy of becoming the world’s leading seaborne supplier of SOP fertilizer. The world-class Mackay potash project will produce a premium quality SOP product and is located on the doorstep of Asia Pacific’s key growth markets.”
"The granting of major project status is an acknowledgement of the Mackay potash project as being of strategic significance to Australia, along with producing long-term benefits through a contribution to exports, employment and infrastructure development.”
“We look forward to working with the Major Projects Facilitation Agency who will provide welcomed assistance during our Commonwealth Government approvals process.”
