Use of funds
Salt Lake Potash chief executive officer Tony Swiericzuk said: “On behalf of the company, I would like to thank all of our shareholders for their ongoing support as evidenced by the strong demand for the SPP.
“The funds raised through the placement and SPP, have enabled the company to achieve financial close on the US$138 million Taurus/CEFC debt facility and draw the initial tranche of US$105 million and to finalise development of the Lake Way Project.”
