Turkmenistan intends to explore another potash deposit

A tender was published in the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper for exploration of the Turkmen part of the Tyubegatan deposit (Leilimekan) of potassium salts.

To participate in the tender you need to pay $ 2 thousand.

Partially, the field is located in Lebap velayat on the border of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The most promising part of the field is located on the territory of Uzbekistan, where in 2017 theconstruction of a potash plant also began .

This is the third deposit of potassium, which intends to develop Turkmenistan. In March 2017, the Garlyk GOK was commissioned, but at the moment it is only 2.3% of the planned capacity. The construction of a second potash plant is underway. For its construction, as well as for the construction of the Ashgabat-Turkmenabat highway, businessmen from the TESF were granted a preferential state loan of $ 3 billion.
