As quoted from the press release:

Highlights

• Robust, Bankable Project: BFS confirms that Kalium Lakes’ 100 percent owned, Beyondie sulphate of potash project (BSOPP), is technically and financially robust, with production anticipated in 2020.

90 percent increase in ore reserves: Based solely within the Stage 1 Approval Footprint which represents less than a quarter of total lake surface area within the tenement package 1:
Proved Reserve of 1.65 Mt @ 13,830 mg/l SOP at a cut-off grade of 2,500mg/l K
Probable Reserve of 3.49 Mt @ 11,820 mg/l SOP at a cut-off grade of 2,500mg/l K
Measured Resource of 1.72 Mt @ 11,488 mg/l SOP
Indicated Resource of 9.17 Mt @ 12,459 mg/l SOP
Inferred Resource of 8.75 Mt @ 12,593 mg/l SOP

• Increased Production Rates: The base case outcome of the BFS for the Beyondie SOP project is a 164ktpa SOP operation. This is an increase of 10 percent on the pre-feasibility study (PFS) based on (amongst other matters) an update to the Company’s increased Ore Reserve, detailed brine extraction modelling, pilot scale pond and processing outcomes.

After taking into consideration operational, SOP market and financing risk management perspectives, the Company has confirmed a phased ramp-up development scenario, starting with a commercial demonstration scale 82ktpa SOP operation, before
ramping up to a 164ktpa full scale SOP production facility.

  • Extended Mine Life In Excess of 30 years 2
    Based on production of 164ktpa SOP, the extended
    mine life represents an increase of 7 years on the PFS estimated mine life. The Economic Evaluation
    excludes any production post 30 years from the Base Case Mine Plan.
  • Improved Financial Outcomes for the Base Case:
    Pre-tax NPV8 AU$575M, IRR of 20 percent
    Average EBITDA of AU$116Mpa, EBITDA margin of 61 percent
    A payback period of 7 years and Life of Mine (LOM) 30 years
    Free cash flows of more than +AU$2 billion
    Based on CRU forecast US$606/t nominal average LOM SOP @ $AU/$US exchange rate of 0.73.

Rare Earth Elements Demand is Still Growing

Rare Earth Elements are 17 silvery-white heavy metals with special magnetic capabilities. REEs have diverse applications and are commonly used in lasers, glass, superconductors, hard drives, wind turbine generators, and magnetic materials. Despite the name, REEs are abundant in the world, often found underground alongside uranium in sand structures called monazite. REEs concentrate must first be separated from the sand. Neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr) represent about 80% of the value of REE concentrate. Demand for these elements is growing because of their use in electric vehicles, wind turbines, and appliances. Adams Intelligence expects the demand for NdPr to double in the next five years. Removing REEs from monazite and then separating REEs into individual components is a complicated process.
