Salt Lake Potash Ltd (ASX:SO4) (LON:SO4) (OTCMKTS:WHELF) has procured 90% of all major long-lead items for its process plant and non-process infrastructure in line with or ahead of schedule for its Lake Way Project.

The project in the Goldfields region of Western Australia remains on track for first SOP sales in the March 2021 quarter.

Chief executive officer Tony Swiericzuk said: “During the June quarter our procurement and engineering teams have been busy finalising contracts with suppliers and completing detailed engineering of the plant and non-process infrastructure.

“So far we have seen no impact to the project schedule from COVID-19 as we push towards first production in the March quarter of next year.”
