Potash Production to Commence in Afar Regional State

The Dallol-Potash Project controls 160sqms of the Danakil Depression in Afar Regional State, 740 kms north-east of Addis Abeba. The exploration proved the existence of 27 million tonnes of Sylvinite, a physical mixture of two salts – Potassium Chloride and Sodium Chloride. This is a very important ore in the production of potash.
