Abstract

Potash is the common name for various salts that contain potassium (K) in water-soluble form and is an important component of many fertilisers. Because of its importance, a review was carried out into the potential of Australian salt lake systems from arid areas for potash, lithium, boron, and calcrete-hosted uranium deposits (Mernagh et al., 2013). Following this study, Geoscience Australia investigated the depositional environments, studied various examples and considered exploration histories of Australian acid salt lakes.
