Australian Potash has confirmed the appointment of Rhett Brans to the role of Project Director on the Lake Wells sulfate of potash project (LSOP).

Brans has been a Non-executive Director of the company since May 2017 and is intricately familiar with the LSOP. Brans will work closely with continuing Project Manager Stewart McCallion, building on the methodical and comprehensive project work done to date.

Managing Director and CEO, Matt Shackleton, commented: “Our project team has done an outstanding job to complete the LSOP definitive feasibility study and progress to this point of the FEED programme. The recent support of our shareholders now allows us to supply more horsepower to the team as we close out the FEED programme and begin pre-construction activities. Rhett comes into the team with a wealth of experience from both the owner’s and contractor’s side of the fence.

“Rhett will assume principal responsibility for contracting strategy, schedule maintenance and capital works. With the development of the WA sulfate of potash sector in its infancy, we are focussed on mitigating risks associated with project implementation, which underpins APC’s capacity to execute its project funding plan and deliver long term value to shareholders.

“Rhett’s long, varied and successful experience across different continents, different commodities and different mineral processing developments will give our team invaluable in-field insight through early works leading into the development proper.”
