THE prefeasibility study (PFS) into the Colluli potash project, in Eritrea, has estimated that the project would require an initial investment of some $442-million.

The PFS examined a two-module development with an expected production of 425 000 t/y sulphate potash for the first five years of operation, increasing to 850 000 t/y for the remainder of the proposed 30-year mine life.  Continue reading South Boulder Publishes Prefeasibility Study (PFS) for Eritrea Potash Project

Eritrea-Based Potash Project Primed to Service Budding Global Market

With few resources left in the world that are producing potassium sulphate, which is now considered a ‘premium product’, Australian company Sunridge Gold is rushing through the studies at its Eritrea-based Colluli potash project to get the product to the global market

“The fundamentals are exceptionally good for fertilisers. A growing population, the reduction of arable land and changing dietary preferences mean that fertiliser consumption will grow in future and it’s an essential agricultural commodity; it can’t be substituted,” he told Mining Weekly Online on Monday.
