Project Details

Dampier Salt (DSL) has three Salt operations in Western Australia located at Dampier, Port Hedland and Lake Mcleod. Salt production is achieved by pumping seawater through progressive ponds resulting in concentration via evaporation.

The salt is harvested and then transported to the wash plant by 180 tonne, bottom dump trucks. Thereafter, the salt is washed to remove insoluble materials and fed onto a static screen where brine and seawater sprays remove the residual liquor that surrounds the salt crystals. The product salt is then fed onto a radial stacker, which moves through an arc of 180 degrees to form a stockpile with storage capacity of over 750,000 tonnes.
