President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced that Ghana is preparing to launch large-scale salt production, attributing this milestone to the Ada Songhor Salt project led by Electrochem Salt Mine Limited. He believes this endeavor will profoundly impact Ghana’s economy.

Speaking on Ghana’s 67th Independence Day in Koforidua, Eastern Region, on March 6, the President disclosed that the project has finally commenced after years of disputes that impeded salt extraction at the site.

“The other major project that is coming on stream, which is bound to make a dramatic change to the economy, is the Ada Songhor Salt project, being spearheaded by Electrochem Salt Mine Ltd, led by the dynamic Ghanaian entrepreneur, Mr. Daniel McKorley, aka McDan. After many years of disputes, which prevented the exploitation of salt at the site, work has finally started and salt will be mined on a large commercial scale,” he announced.

President Akufo-Addo further stated that Electrochem Salt Mine is poised to become Africa’s largest salt production facility, with a projected production capacity of two million metric tonnes by 2027.

“With its initial ability to produce some six hundred and fifty thousand metric tons (650,000 MT) of salt per annum, and expanding its productive capacity to one million metric tonnes this year, and to two million metric tonnes by 2027, at ninety-nine-point-nine-nine-percent (99.99%) purity, the Electrochem Salt Mine will be the biggest salt producing facility in Africa. These are figures that should spell a significant change in the economy, and cheer us up,” he stated.
