ICL reaches agreement with the Israel Government over Dead sea salt harvesting project

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL: Israel Chemicals Ltd (ICL) has approved a framework agreement with ministry of finance, Israel government regarding ICL’s participation in the costs of the Dead sea salt harvesting project and level of royalties that ICL will pay on its sales of potash mined from the Dead sea. Execution of the agreement is pending approval by Israel government.

ICL will finance 100 per cent of the cost of salt harvesting, a major undertaking which is projected to cost approximately $1 billion over ICL’s concession period, until March 2030, assuming a 7 per cent discount rate. The government’s cash participation in the cost is $30 million it received from ICL in 1992, whose current value accounts for 20 per cent of the total project cost.
