The study has indicated the project is capable of achieving a nameplate production target of 245 000 tpy of SOP over an initial Life-of-Mine (LOM) of 21 years.
The total drainable Mineral Resource now stands at 14.4 million t at 4665 mg/L potassium (or 10.4 kg/m3 K2SO4).
The initial capital cost of is estimated at AUS$378 million, including a AUS$70 million contingency with an accuracy of ±25-35%. According to the study, Lake Throssell will generate an average EBITDA of AUS$97 million per annum at a US$550/t SOP price.
