Our Community

Australian Potash is committed to supporting jobs, economic development and building capability in the local communities which are close to our operations.

For our flagship Lake Wells Project, this means the remote community of Laverton.

To help our understanding we have worked closely with the Shire of Laverton, the Laverton School and other important stakeholders in the region, and we will continue to work with our community to ensure we are a  good neighbour.

We have pledged jobs through the Wirrpanda Foundation's sector leading programs that encompass work skills, on the job mentoring and on-going employment support for Indigenous new hires.

We're supporting the development of a new VTEC Training program in Laverton.

We will also provide opportunities for a drive-in drive-out workforce from Laverton and surrounding communities.

Australian Potash has also invested in a significant three year STEM Program in the Laverton School which comprises of the Laverton, Mulga Queen and Cosmo Newberry remote campuses.

In addition to the significant regional benefit the Lake Wells project will deliver, there are tangible benefits that will accrue to the Western Australian agricultural industry with the creation of a local supply of this premium fertiliser.
