LCK said it was already well advanced with work that’s required to establish the commercial feasibility of the project to then gain a production license.

The project, located five and a half hours north of Adelaide in South Australia, will produce pipeline quality gas and or nitrogen fertiliser products, when production starts in a few years time.

The company is now in the development phase after it conducted the Pre-Commercial Demonstration (PCD) in 2019, which proved up the reserve of 1,153 Petajoules and fulfilled its Statement of Environmental Objectives requirements for the PCD.

“Along with (the) completion of the PCD, we see the granting of the PRL as demonstration of our commitment to the project.”

Managing Director, Phil Staveley

“It is good to see in these tough times that projects that will bring significant employment and revenue to the state are progressing. We look forward to sharing our commercial plans with shareholders as they develop.” Mr Staveley said.

Despite the news, LCK is down eleven and a half per cent and selling shares for 11.5 cents each at 1:30 pm AEST.
