South Harz Potash Ltd (ASX:SHP) chief operating officer Lawrence Berthelet speaks to Proactive's Thomas Warner about progress at the potash exploration and development company's flagship Ohmgebirge development in Germany.
The project is located in the South Harz region of the country, an area with a rich history of producing potash. He says that the preliminary feasibility study (PFS) for the mine is around 50% complete and that the company is currently focused on optimising the process flow diagram, refining the mine plan, and developing logistics solutions. Berthelet emphasises the availability of well-developed infrastructure in Germany, including gas, power, rail, and water resources, which significantly de-risks the project.
He also highlights the benefit South Harz potash is getting from its good relationship with its neighbours in the region. "The fact that there is an existing, geotechnically sound mine.beside us allows us to get samples, it allows us to do more geotechnical analysis for our mine plan… really I think we are probably the only junior potash play in the world that can go underground and be 700m from our deposit and take representative samples."
