Mines Could Exceed Expected Life Span

POTASSIUM fertiliser production and export in Western Australia, due to start later this year, has the potential to extend well beyond the 20 to 25-year initial life span estimates for leading projects.

Several potential Sulphate of Potash (SoP) producers have announced upgraded drilling program and sampling results in the past month, suggesting potassium-rich remote salt lake brine resources to be exploited are more extensive than initially thought.

Front runner in the race to produce local SoP in the fourth quarter this year, Kalium Lakes Ltd (KLL) last week told the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) a resampling after four years at Sunshine Lake and other lakes to the east - the proposed second stage of its Beyondie project 160 kilometres south east of Newman in the Pilbara - had confirmed "consistent" high-grade potassium reserves.
