Kalium Lakes (KLL) has entered the final stages of development at its Beyondie sulphate of potash (SOP) project in Western Australia.

The company ha been pushing to get the project to completion over the June quarter.

At the end of July, the company pumped 113,000 tonnes of contained SOP and more than 90,000 tonnes of potassium salt, which meets the plant feed cut-off grade, has been harvested and delivered to the run of mine (ROM) stockpile.

Harvesting operations continue, without delays or interruptions, and several other ponds are ready and available for harvest.

Kalium is targeting the first production of SOP in late September.

CEO Rudolph van Niekerk is pleased with the progress of Beyondie.

“Having installed a robust network of brine supply and evaporation ponds, we continue to reap the bounty of large volumes of potassium salts above the plant feed cut-off grade, which are harvested and delivered to the ROM pad,” he said.

“The operations team at the Beyondie SOP Project is working closely with the projects team through each of the separate commissioning stages of the SOP purification plant.

“We are entering the final phase of the project and, with several areas of the plant ready for water commissioning, there are only a couple of months to go before the commencement of SOP production.”

Just before the market opens, Kalium last traded at 23.5 cents per share.
