Progress on Kalium Lakes’ IES Strategy
Project: Beyondie Sulphate of Potash Project
Project Update: December 2020
Kalium Lakes (KLL) continue to deliver solid outcomes for the Gingirana and Birriliburu peoples through their Indigenous Engagement Strategy (IES) by providing project updates at regular meetings, investing in the Wiluna Remote Community School Training Centre and supporting the on-country Gingirana ranger trip in September. The rangers focussed on feral animal control, scoped out village landscaping, sewerage sprinkler and fencing repair works and undertook weed removal at camp.
In consultation with the local Traditional Owners, KLL has implemented a Small Project Program, whereby members of the Gingirana and Birriliburu communities are invited to express an interest in being involved in and tendering for small projects associated with the BSOPP. A number of Scope of Works have been issued under the SPP to date, with some discussions underway.
The intention is to include projects which also align with care for country and Aboriginal Ranger initiatives such as rehabilitation, landscaping and fire management, along with other project related activities, including; the installation of a viewing platform behind the administration facilities, production bore fencing and bore maintenance, along with other progressively added opportunities as they are identified and become available.
