Salt Lake Potash Limited (SO4 or the Company) is pleased to announce positive results from the pumping of its paleochannel brine extraction bore at Lake Way.


-- Pumping of the initial brine extraction bore drilled into the Lake Way paleochannel delivered flow rates of 18 litres per second with a consistent Potassium grade of 7,100mg per litre (15.9kg/m(3) SOP), sustained over a 17 day period.

-- The results are significantly above average flow rates used in the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) announced 11 October 2019 of 8.4 litres per second (per bore) and average interpolated brine grades within the paleochannel of 6,100mg per litre (13.7kg/m(3) SOP).

-- Drawdown of brine observed in monitoring bores located next to the pumping bore aligned with hydrogeological assumptions used in the BFS.

-- The response to pumping observed in a monitoring bore 1.6 km away indicates continuity of the aquifer, whilst brine samples also indicate a consistent grade within this zone of the paleochannel.

-- Two additional brine extraction bores have been completed along the paleochannel with pumping expected to commence in the near term. In each case the primary basal sand aquifer was encountered in line with our geological model prediction.

TONY SWIERICZUK, Chief Executive Officer

"Strong results from pumping our first brine abstraction bore validates work undertaken as part of the BFS and highlights the value of the paleochannel resource which will be a significant contributor of brine supply to our ponds over the life of the project."

paleochannel drilling

In April SO4 commenced drilling its first brine extraction bore into the paleochannel basal sands at Lake Way.

The bore was located at Pad 17 with two monitoring bores also drilled adjacent. Test pumping was sustained over a 17 day period.

During the test pumping, brine samples were taken every 24 hours. Potassium and Sulphate grades were consistent throughout, averaging 7,100mg per litre and 29,700mg per litre respectively (15.9kg/m(3) SOP) . The 17 day duration of the test and constant pumping rate of 18 litres per second was sufficient to stress the aquifer and to model the longterm aquifer response to pumping.

Brine levels were measured in all three bores at Pad 17 and also in a monitoring bore at Pad 21 approximately 1.6km to the North.

Drawdown observed in the monitoring bores located at Pad 17 demonstrated that brine flow is sourced from lateral flow within the basal sand aquifer as well as from downward vertical leakage from the overlying paleovalley clays. This is consistent with modelling assumptions set out in the BFS.

Furthermore, drawdown was observed in the monitoring bore at Pad 21, indicating a strong continuity of flow and grade within this zone of the paleochannel. A brine sample taken from the monitoring bore at Pad 21 reported a grade of 7,230mg per litre Potassium (16.2kg/m(3) ) and 29,500 mg per litre Sulphate, consistent with that seen at Pad 17.

In the months ahead SO4 will drill and test pump further brine extraction bores along the Eastern side of Lake Way. During May bores have been completed at Pads 8 and 21, with test pumping expected to be completed in the near term. In each case the primary basal sand aquifer was encountered in line with our geological model prediction.
