OVERVIEW

Salt Lake Potash is the owner of nine large salt lakes in the Northern Goldfields Region of Western Australia.  This outstanding portfolio of assets has a number of important, favourable characteristics:

·      Over 3,300km2 of playa surface, with in-situ clays suitable for low cost on-lake pond construction;

·      Very large paleochannel hosted brine aquifers, with chemistry amenable to evaporation of salts for SOP production, extractable from both low-cost trenches and deeper bores;

·      Excellent evaporation conditions;

·      Excellent access to transport, energy and other infrastructure in the Goldfields mining district;

·      Clear opportunity to reduce transport costs by developing lakes closer to infrastructure and by capturing economies of scale; and

·     Potential for multi-lake production offers optionality and significant scale potential, operational flexibility, cost advantages and risk mitigation from localised weather events.

Salt Lake Potash's immediate focus is on the rapid development of the Lake Way Project. Lake Way's location and logistical advantages make it the ideal location for the Company's first SOP operation. Construction on the Company's first commercial scale on-lake evaporation ponds completed during the Quarter.

The Company's long term plan is to develop an integrated SOP operation, producing from a number (or all) of the lakes.  Salt Lake Potash will progressively explore each of the lakes with a view to estimating resources for each Lake, and determining the development potential. Exploration of the lakes will be prioritised based on likely transport costs, scale, permitting pathway and brine chemistry.

LAKE WAY PROJECT

Lake Way is located in the Northern Goldfields Region of Western Australia, less than 15km south of Wiluna. The surface area of the Lake is over 270km2.

Salt Lake Potash holds five Exploration Licences (two granted and three under application) and one application for a Mining Lease, covering most of Lake Way and select areas off-lake, including the paleochannel defined by previous exploration. The northern end of the Lake is largely covered by a number of Mining Leases, held by Blackham Resources Limited, the owner of the Wiluna Gold Mine. The Blackham tenements are now subject to a Sales Agreement, where Salt Lake Potash will acquire a package of strategic tenements and other key assets for the Lake Way Project.

Lake Way has a number of compelling advantages which make it an ideal site for Salt Lake Potash's initial SOP operation, including:

Ø        Existing Mining Leases provide advanced permitting pathway for early development activity, including the construction of the initial Lake Way Evaporation Ponds.

Ø      Salt Lake Potash has now completed construction of the initial Lake Way Evaporation Ponds which will enable the Company to dewater the existing Williamson Pit. The pit contains an estimated 1.2GL of brine at the exceptional grade of 25kg/m3 of SOP. This brine is the ideal starter feed for evaporation ponds, having already evaporated from the normal Lake Way brine grade, which averages over 15kg/m3.

Ø     The high grade brines at Lake Way will result in lower capital and operating costs due to lower extraction and evaporation requirements.

Ø     The presence of clays in the upper levels of the lake which are amenable to low cost, on-lake evaporation pond construction.

Ø      The site has excellent freight solutions, being adjacent to the Goldfields Highway, which is permitted for heavy haulage, quad trailer road trains to the railhead at Leonora and then direct rail access to both Esperance and Fremantle Ports, or via other heavy haulage roads to Geraldton Port.

Ø        The Goldfields Gas Pipeline is adjacent to Salt Lake Potash's tenements, running past the eastern side of the Lake.

Acquisition of Strategic Tenement Package

In July 2019, Salt Lake Potash entered into a Sales Agreement with Blackham to acquire a package of tenements and other key assets for the Lake Way Project (Transaction).

Blackham and Salt Lake Potash have been cooperating on their respective projects in the Wiluna/Lake Way region for the past 18 months. Salt Lake Potash is currently progressing its Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) for the Lake Way Project, and has identified specific Blackham assets which provide synergies for the Lake Way Project and material value to Salt Lake Potash.

Under the Sales Agreement, Salt Lake Potash has agreed to acquire the tenements owned by Blackham that sit on the Northern end of Lake Way and to the East of the Gold Fields highway.

With effect from execution, Blackham has agreed to provide immediate access to process water, and consent to the grant of new tenure over its tenements to enable Salt Lake Potash to advance early works including camps and water infrastructure. Blackham has also granted Salt Lake Potash an option to acquire a key borefield which will support the Lake Way Project.

The Brine Royalty granted to Blackham as part of the Split Commodity Agreement will be extinguished effective 30 June 2020.

Salt Lake Potash will pay total consideration of A$10 million, inclusive of A$500,000 payable under the Split Commodity Agreement. Blackham retains the gold rights across the transferred tenements. The Company will also assume rehabilitation obligation for all existing disturbance on Lake Way.

Salt Lake Potash and Blackham have also identified a mutual opportunity for Salt Lake Potash to utilise part of the pre-strip material from Blackham's proposed Williamson Pit development for the construction of the Company's on-lake evaporation ponds. Under the arrangement, when Blackham recommission the Williamson Pit operation, Salt Lake Potash will contribute up to $10m towards the performance of the pre-strip of the Williamson Pit, with pre-strip material directly applied towards the construction of the bund walls of the on-lake evaporation ponds. This contribution forms part of the Project's existing construction capex and will be funded as part of project financing.

The Transaction is another important step in providing the Company with certainty over the timing and capital expenditure required to bring the Lake Way Project into production.

Scoping Study for Commercial Scale Development

The results of a Scoping Study for the commercial scale development of its SOP project at Lake Way were reported in June 2019. The Scoping Study demonstrates the potential for the Lake Way Project to support a low capital and operating cost operation on a commercial scale with the ability to support a long mine life:

Ø     Lake Way Project to produce an estimated 200,000 tonnes per year of premium grade SOP (>52% K2O)

Ø     High-grade SOP resource underpins long Mine Life of 20 years

Ø     Lowest operating cost for global SOP producers with an FOB operating cost estimate of A$264/t (US$185/t)

Ø   Low development capital requirements of approximately A$237m (US$166m) including a growth allowance of ~13% (A$32m) supported by the close proximity to infrastructure

Ø     Exceptional economics with estimated project post-tax NPV8 of A$381m (pre-tax NPV8 of A$580m) and post-tax IRR of 27% (pre-tax IRR 33%)

Ø      Steady state EBITDA of A$90m annually and average annual after tax cashflow of A$64m

Ø      Strong cashflow and low capital cost result in early payback period of 3.2 years

Ø      Construction now complete on the first phase of Evaporation Ponds (the Williamson Ponds) which will support the dewatering of the Williamson Pit's super saturated brine with an SOP grade of 25kg/m3

Ø      Plant commissioning expected Q4 2020 utilising salts from the Williamson Pit brine

Ø      BFS currently underway with completion expected in Q3 2019 to support project financing

Salt Lake Potash has already significantly de-risked the commercial scale project through the early construction works on the first phase of the Evaporation Ponds (the Williamson Ponds). The de-watering of the Williamson Pit and commencement of evaporation will provide additional insight into the critical evaporation processes which in turn will further de-risk the project.

Lowest Operating Costs

The results of the Scoping Study demonstrate the potential for very low operating costs. It was estimated that the Lake Way Project will have the lowest operating costs of any SOP operation globally with an FOB operating cost of $264/t (US$185/t).

Short Payback period

The low development capital requirements and significant margins received for the Lake Way Project provides a short payback period of just 3.2 years from first production. This will result in full repayment of development capital by 2024.

KCl Addition Opportunity

The resource at Lake Way contains a significant excess of sulphate (SO4) which provides the opportunity for the Company to explore value adding measures including a potassium chloride (KCl) reaction phase to the processing stage. Preliminary work has shown significant benefits to the Lake Way Project through the inclusion of the KCl reaction phase in the process, including a potential increase in annual production of SOP and subsequent improvements in financial returns to shareholders. The Company is exploring this opportunity as part of the BFS for the Lake Way Project including process testwork at Saskatchewan Research Council.

Robust Economics

The Study demonstrates that the Lake Way Project provides exceptional economics even under the most extreme downside pricing scenarios. The breakeven pricing scenario is a significant 40+% decrease in price at US$323/t.

Bankable Feasibility Study

Having completed the successful Scoping Study, Salt Lake Potash has subsequently commenced a BFS targeted for completion in Q3 2019. The Company has appointed GR Engineering Services Limited (GRES, ASX:GNG) as lead engineer for the BFS. GRES are working with a number of industry experts including Wood Saskatoon.

The BFS will include the following:

Ø        Further drilling and trenching programs to increase resource definition and confidence levels for the Lake Way Resource including lake playa and paleochannel

Ø       Additional test work at Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) on the process flow sheet, including completion of two pilot plant test runs

Ø        Review KCl opportunity and determine the options for the possible inclusion of a KCl reaction within the SOP Plant Process

Ø        Refinement of logistics solution and identification of preferred constructors

Ø        Update the trench hydraulic analysis and optimisation of trench design in partnership with Cardno

Ø      Incorporate findings from the first phase of Evaporation Pond construction into the design and construction methodology for the commercial scale project

Ø        On-going design and refinement of the Process Plant including partnering with vendors for major equipment including crystallisers to conduct testwork relevant to their equipment

In parallel with work being undertaken on the BFS and utilising experience gained from the construction of the initial Evaporation Ponds, the Company is moving into a Front End Engineering Design (FEED).

Civil Construction - On-Lake Infrastructure

Salt Lake Potash commenced construction of the first phase of commercial scale Sulphate of Potash (SOP) brine evaporation ponds (Williamson Ponds) at its Lake Way Project in March 2019 following receipt of the Part V works approval from the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER). The first phase of ponds consisted of:

·      Two evaporation ponds:

Kainite Harvest Pond 500m x 500m (25Ha); and

Halite Pond 2,000m x 500m (100Ha);

·      A 2km long and 6-8m deep trench running parallel to the ponds, which will provide additional brine feed into the pond network;

·      A 1.4km causeway from the Williamson Pit to the Kainite Harvest Pond; and

·      Associated piping and pumping infrastructure.

Construction of the evaporation ponds was completed in June 2019, and the 2km trench was completed in July 2019. The Company undertook a self-perform model for the delivery of the initial Lake Way Ponds. This delivery model allowed a fast track mobilisation and cost effective execution of the works, whilst providing the Company with critical hands on experience allowing testing and validating of various design criteria to de-risk the future on-lake construction.

The Williamson Ponds were designed to receive the 1.2GL of high-grade SOP brine from the Williamson Pit mine, with de-watering of the pit now underway and is scheduled to complete in second half of 2019.  Given the super-saturated nature of the Williamson Pit brines, precipitation of salts started immediately upon pumping into the evaporation pond. The Company will be able to harvest first salts from the Williamson Ponds which are expected to be utilised as initial feed stock for the process plant commissioning.

Engineering work to scope and design the Project's on-lake infrastructure progressed during the Quarter.

A geotechnical investigation program was completed on-lake at proposed evaporation pond sites. The campaign included carrying out cone penetration tests (CPT), boreholes and test pits to assess ground conditions and define soil characteristics. The data was used to evaluate pond seepage, analyse trench and pond stability and carry out geotechnical design work.

A civil engineering study was undertaken to assess the hydraulic performance of and further refine the trench network.

Evaporation pond design progressed significantly. Process modelling has been completed to size ponds and define harvest salt characteristics. Evaporation pond layout designs are nearing completion and provide a key input to the BFS.

Infrastructure engineering, piping analysis and mechanical design is ongoing to specify the requirements of the brine pumping systems.

Continuous Site Evaporation Trial

The Company commenced further site evaporation trials (SET) in Q1 2019, with the objective of replicating the proposed Lake Way evaporation process in a continuous manner to produce harvest salts representative of on-lake conditions. Furthermore, these trials will provide valuable experience to operators of large-scale ponds and enable testing of the currently proposed control philosophy of the solar evaporation ponds.

Data collected from the SET is being modelled and, along with the findings from the first phase of Evaporation Pond construction, will be incorporated into the design and construction methodology in the BFS for the commercial scale project.

An upgraded weather station has been installed at Lake Way to accurately log the weather conditions on the lake. Daily monitoring of weather conditions and Evaporation Pan Trials is ongoing, continuing to build the profile of expected conditions at Lake Way and to develop design and operational requirements.

Process Testwork

During the quarter, process testwork continued at the world leading potash laboratory, Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) processing salts harvested from the Lake Way evaporation trials.

The Scoping Study for the commercial scale development at Lake Way recommended the Company review the opportunity for the inclusion of a KCl reaction within the SOP Plant Process. Initial testwork has confirmed the addition of KCl will react with excess sulphate that naturally occurs in the harvest salts creating additional SOP product. 

Prior to operating the first of two planned process tests (Pilot 1) extensive bench scale testing was carried out using site generated harvest salts including; feed preparation, flotation tests, kainite conversion tests, SOP crystallisation tests.  Process flowsheet enhancements were considered during this bench scale testing phase. 

The Pilot 1 processing circuit utilised over one tonne of Lake Way harvest salts and confirmed that high quality SOP can be generated with the addition of KCl.

Pilot 1 produced in excess of 150kg of premium grade SOP which will be provided to key marketing customers in the coming months.

The second of the two planned process test will be completed in August 2019, with findings incorporated into the BFS.

Approvals Advancing

During the Quarter, the Company continued its engagement with the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) in relation to its referral under section 38 of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (EP Act) for development works for the Project on the existing Mining Leases. This included the following infrastructure:

·      Up to 757 hectares of on lake pond disturbance to allow the following activities:

Halite ponds 

Kainite harvest ponds.

Carnallite harvest pond.

Bitterns ponds (being the non-halite residue).

Up to 35km of on lake trenches.

·      Up to 47 hectares of off lake disturbance to allow for the following activities:

A process plant for sulphate of potash production.

Miscellaneous infrastructure including power and water.

The EPA has confirmed these works do not warrant formal assessment and pursuant to section 39(1) of the EP Act, a decision was granted to not assess the proposal.

Following the EPA decision, Salt Lake Potash can proceed to submit the remaining approvals required for this next phase of the Project, with a focus on the on-lake ponds and trenches to allow brine extraction and evaporation.

The Company has submitted a mining proposal and closure plan to the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) and the Works Approval to the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) for the following work scope.

·      Halite ponds 

·      Kainite harvest ponds.

·      Carnallite harvest pond.

·      Bitterns ponds (being the non-halite residue).

·      Up to 35km of on lake trenches.

Obtaining these approvals will enable the Company to commence construction of this next phase of the project, including the significant areas of evaporation ponds and trenches. Salt Lake Potash anticipates approvals will be received during H2 2019.

Native Title

In December 2018, the Company signed a Native Title Land Access and Brine Minerals Exploration Agreement (the Agreement) with Tarlka Matuwa Piarku (Aboriginal Corporation) RNTBC (TMPAC) covering the Lake Way Project area.

TMPAC entered into the Agreement with Salt Lake Potash on behalf of the Wiluna People who are the recognised Native Title Holders of the land covering the Lake Way Project area. TMPAC also provided consent for the total area required for the construction and operation of the initial Lake Way Ponds.

The Company is finalising negotiations with TMPAC to achieve a Native Title Mining Agreement to provide consent to the grant of its mining lease and for the ongoing mining operation. The Native Title Mining Agreement is expected to be finalised and signed in the coming months.

CORPORATE

Capital Raising

In June 2019, the Company completed a placement to strategic investors of 37.5 million shares to raise gross proceeds of A$20.25 million (Placement).

The placement was led by a consortium of cornerstone investors, including the founders of LionOre Mining International (LionOre) as well as the key investors in Mantra Resources at its inception, who will collectively subscribe for 26.4 million shares to raise A$14.25 million. LionOre was bought by Norilsk Nickel for US$6.3 billion in 2007, whilst Mantra Resources was sold to Rosatom in 2010 for A$1.02 billion.

The Company's largest shareholder, Lombard Odier, also subscribed for 11.1 million shares to raise A$6.0 million, further confirming its continued support for Salt Lake Potash and the Lake Way Project.

Subject to Shareholder approval at a meeting to be held on 2 August 2019, subscribers will also receive one for four attaching options exercisable at A$0.85 on or before 30 June 2023 (Options).

The Placement is funding the ongoing construction of the Lake Way Project, including the development of on-lake infrastructure, the payment of deposits on certain process plant long-lead items, completion of feasibility studies, and general working capital.  

In July 2019, the Company agreed to place a further 10.58 million shares to Fidelity International at A$0.70 each to raise A$7.4 million before costs. The Placement under the Company's existing Listing Rule 7.1 placement capacity will fund the majority of the consideration to be paid for the acquisition of the strategic tenement package from Blackham, and is expected to complete on or around 5 August 2019.

Project Funding Advanced

The Company is in advanced discussions with a debt provider for a debt funding package which will support the funding for the Lake Way Project. The Company expects to be able to release details of this funding shortly.

R&D Tax Incentive

During the Quarter, the Company received an R&D tax incentive payment of A$1.6m from the Australian Taxation Office in respect of its research and development activities in the year ended 30 June 2017.

Board Change

Mr Matthew Syme retired as a non-executive director of the Company to pursue his other business interests effective 23 July 2019.

Mr Syme was Chief Executive Officer of the Company from acquisition of its initial salt lake properties in mid 2015, until the appointment of Mr Tony Swiericzuk as Managing Director in late 2018. During this successful period, he led the team which demonstrated the technical and commercial viability of SOP production from salt lakes in the Northern Goldfields of Western Australia. He also managed the acquisition of the majority of the salt lakes in the Company's expansive portfolio today, including Lake Way, where the Company's first commercial SOP operation is being developed.
