Production Capacity

EcoMag plans to construct a commercial scale plant with the capacity to produce 80,000 tonnes per year of hydrated magnesium carbonate, approximately three kilometres north of Karratha near Nickol Bay. The site has immediate access to a 4,000 megalitre per year discarded bittern stream, and ready access to Dampier Port.

This scale would utilise approximately 500 megalitres per year of the bitterns, around one eighth of the total resource available at the site.

The initial plant site and bittern stream provides substantial scope for expansion of production capacity in an enlarged processing plant. In addition, EcoMag is in discussion with other salt producers and potash brine producers in Western Australia with a view to establishing plants at additional sites.
