Parkway Minerals (ASX: PWN) has assembled a portfolio of high-quality resource projects focused on the sustainable production of fertiliser minerals as well as lithium salts, which can be found in certain naturally occurring brines.
Through our strategic investment in Davenport Resources (ASX: DAV), we own a material interest in a globally significant potash resource in Germany, and also own a direct 100% interest in the Dandaragan Trough Project (DTP), where we have invested in excess of $10 million over 8 years, to delineate one of the world’s largest potassium and phosphate containing glauconite/greensands deposits.
In addition to the K-Max® technology we developed specifically for processing glauconite feedstock from the DTP, we recently acquired the innovative aMES™ technology, which has been developed to process a range of challenging brine streams from the mining industry, in order to recover valuable minerals and produce fresh water.
Whilst the aMES™ technology is applicable to the processing of a broad range of brines, Parkway Minerals is currently focused on leveraging this state-of-the-art technology to improve the efficiency, sustainability and ultimately the profitability of global potash production, by enabling the development of more innovative project development concepts. A recent scoping study highlighted the advantages of incorporating the aMES™
technology into the development concept for the Karinga Lakes Potash Project (KLPP). In addition to the KLPP, our ongoing piloting and evaluation studies of several third-party potash projects continue to provide further encouragement of the transformative potential of the aMES™ technology.
As we move forward with our plans to improve global potash production, at Parkway Minerals, our vision is even more ambitious. We plan to, "transform global brine processing methods, through innovative technology, in order to improve sustainability, and create value."
