Karnalyte Resources Inc. (TSX:KRN) reported successful commissioning of the second phase of the optimization program at the Company’s potash solution mine at Wynyard, Saskatchewan.
As quoted in the press release:

The Brine Production Phase consists of a hot leaching process to produce a concentrated potash brine solution. This is accomplished by injecting heated source water from the 500 metre deep Blairmore formation into the production cavern in the 950 metre deep Belle Plaine formation. The concentrated potash brine solution is then brought to surface and analyzed for potash concentration levels in lab facilities at the Saskatchewan Research Council. All brine generated from the optimization program is disposed of in the Company’s 1,500 metre deep disposal well.
“The optimization program is a critical step in the development of the Company’s Wynyard potash project,” said Phinney. “We believe it has the potential to make the already compelling economics of our project even stronger.”
Karnalyte anticipates that the Brine Production Phase will run for approximately two months until the end of October, 2016 with a final report on the optimization program expected to be issued by December, 2016.
