Danakali Ltd. said Thursday that tests for its Colluli potassium sulfate project in Eritrea prove predictable high-grade production at low chloride levels.
The group, which owns the project through a 50-50 partnership with the Eritrean National Mining Corporation, said an optimized-process plant design significantly reduces capital expenditure, operating costs and maintenance costs.
"Every study has increased our certainty that Colluli is the asset that will dominate the SOP (potassium sulfate) industry and change agriculture for the better in Eritrea, across Africa and beyond," Executive Chairman Seamus Cornelius said.
