  • The company has now completed construction of 400 ha. of evaporation ponds and 35 km of brine abstraction trenches.
  • Stage 2 includes 275 ha. of brine evaporation ponds which will provide feed salts to the process plant in 2021.
  • Focus has now shifted to construction of the process plant as well as other non-process infrastructure, where ground clearing and early stage civil activity has commenced.
  • The project remains on-track to commence plant commissioning in December 2020, with first SOP sales in the March’21 quarter.

Tony Swiericzuk, CEO, said: “The rapid delivery of the Lake Way SOP project continues. Completion of the Stage 2 ponds, ahead of schedule and on budget, means the company now has the infrastructure in place to supply harvest salts to the process plant in 2021. As these key milestones are completed the project continues to be significantly de-risked with expected first SOP production now just 10 months away.”
