The Beyondie SOP project comprises 15 granted exploration licences and a miscellaneous licence covering an area of approximately 2,400 square kilometres.
As quoted from the press release:
KLL previously announced, on May 28, 2018, that it had received a notice of decision to consent to minor and preliminary works under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (WA) from the Environmental Protection Authority of Western Australia (EPA) for the BSOPP.
- The approvals allow for the construction, operation and maintenance of:

- Upgrade accommodation camp, including waste water treatment plant;
- Workshop upgrade; and
- Upgrade of communication towers.
- KLL is also pleased to advise that in addition to its recently granted Mining Leases for the BSOPP, all of the key Miscellaneous Licence Applications for the project have now been granted.
These miscellaneous licences allow for the development of the following supporting infrastructure; gas pipeline, water pipeline, power line, bridge/culverts, search for groundwater, taking water, meteorological station, communications facility, drainage channel, pump station, mine site accommodation facility, bore and borefield, water management facility, power generation, storage and transport facility for mine concentrate, mine site administration facility, workshop and storage facility.
Kalium Lakes’ full list of exploration and mining tenure associated with the 100% owned BSOPP is set out in Table 1 below. The mining tenure location (Figure 1) covers the Stage 1 area of the Project (Figure 2). Minor ancillary applications may be made in the future, as required.
“The approval of the Mining Proposal and grant of our initial Mining Tenure requirements ensures that we are able to undertake the early works construction activities this calendar year, while the remaining approvals for the BSOPP are processed,” said managing director, Brett Hazelden.
