Fort Cady progress

Apple Valley-based ABR’s flagship Fort Cady Borate Project in southern California has recently achieved several milestones including the completion of basic engineering, electricity connected to site, receipt of air quality permits and the beginning of gas connection to site.

Basic engineering has delivered definitive layouts to enable the company to move into the final phase of engineering.

Managing director and CEO Michael Schlumpberger said: “We are focused on the ongoing completion of milestones that will enable us to commence construction of our flagship Fort Cady Borate Mine in the current calendar year.”

The project has been rated as the best development project globally in its rated peer group.

Earlier this year, a definitive feasibility study (DFS) valued the three-phase Fort Cady project at US$1.08 billion.
