The company anticipates the product of 1-2Mt of potash via open pit mining methods in 2016 or sooner. The Colluli Project is situated in a uniquely young and shallow evaporate basin called the Danakil Depression which straddles the Eritrean and Ethiopian border in the south eastern coastal region of Eritrea.

Since June 2010 South Boulder has defined a substantial mineral resource and has been conducting feasibility study activities into mining the world’s first open cut potash.
