Kalium Lakes Limited (KLL) has commenced commissioning of the Large Scale Pilot Evaporation Ponds at the Beyondie Sulphate Of Potash Project (BSOPP).
Filling of the Ponds with brine from production bores has commenced.
Costs associated with the construction of these ponds, bores, trenches, pumps and pipes will provide a direct input into the capital cost estimates being compiled for the PFS.
SOP Recovery for lined ponds estimated at up to 87% excluding purification plant recovery losses.
SOP Recovery for unlined ponds estimated at up to 69% assuming a 0.5 mm/day leakage rate and excluding purification plant recovery losses.
Pilot pond program is designed to verify current assumptions and operational parameters along with production of bulk samples for purification plant pilot works and marketing samples.
