07.05.2018 in Sondershausen (Germany) was organized by the initiative of K + S Group Company, a tripartite meeting of the managers and specialists of K + S Group Company (Germany), AG Salt Technologies (K-UTEC) ( Germany) and JSC "Complex Mining Investments" (JSC "KGDI") (Russia)
At the meeting, the parties confirmed their common preliminary interest in the joint development of a project for the study and development of the Northern Krasnoborsk and East Krasnoborsk deposits of polygalite ores, and the development of a premium product, sulphate-potassium fertilizers, on their raw materials base.
K-UTEC has confirmed that it has experience in developing technology, geology, economics, ecology for such assets and has an appropriate pilot plant base, and tends to a positive assessment of the geological, technological and economic factors of the Krasnoborsky polygalite ore project.
And K + S Group Company announced its current search for an asset for SOP production and reported that, after studying by K + S specialists together with specialists of K-UTEC, provided to JSC "KGDI" all available information on geology, technology, economics of the project with a field visit to the Kaliningrad region to inspect wells and cores, will formulate their conclusions about the quality of the asset and provide their assessment and calculations for further development of the FS phase of the project.
In the 2nd quarter of 2018, work was completed on the preparation of a geological report on the results of the “SEARCH AND ESTIMATION WORKS ON THE POTASSIUM MAGNEYE SALT ON THE NORTH KRASNOBORSKY NEDR” site and on the preparation of a feasibility study on temporary exploration standards and the production of the monopoly flamethroughs. Krasnoborsky subsoil plot. The prepared materials passed the state expert commission created by the order of the St. Petersburg branch of the FBU "GKZ" dated 05.14.2018 No. SP-0-9 / 20-org and supplement 30.05.2018 No. SP-01-9 / 28-org.
