Salt Lake Potash (SO4) has received its Part IV Environmental Approval for the Lake Way project covering full-scale operations of 245 000 tpy of sulfate of potash (SOP).

The company’s Part IV Environmental submission has been approved by the Australian government, having been recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with no appeals in January 2021.

The permit enables SO4 to finalise construction of pond trains 4-6 as well as associated trench and bore construction that will support full scale operations at Lake Way.

Construction work on the final components of on-lake infrastructure will commence this quarter.

"Receiving final Environmental Approval over the full Lake Way project will enable our team to commence construction of the remaining on-lake infrastructure and deliver the full scope of the Lake Way project. We look forward to commencing work shortly on this final phase," said Tony Swiericzuk, CEO.
