Larmon Pty Ltd, trading as SunSalt, is a privately owned company operated by Duncan and Jan Thomson. The business commenced operating in 1983 producing crude salt from the unlimited supply of underground saline water at Hattah, North West Victoria. With greater than twenty years inland saline water mineral extraction experience, SunSalt has gained significant knowledge and developed distinctive techniques to effectively and efficiently extract value-added salts from inland brines.

Since 1986 the company has installed a refinery consisting of three factories at Hattah for making industrial salts, and more recently a factory in Mildura for the purpose of producing the gourmet pink flake salts, and high grade magnesium sulphate (Epsom salt).

The company employs fourteen full time people as well as eight - ten casual harvesting labour and a permanent contract cartage operator with a crew of five people. We see the contribution of SunSalt to the regional Australian employment as quite significant.

SunSalt is a growing small-medium-size business currently operating at two locations within the Murray Darling Basin:

Spectacle Salt Lake Hattah (NW Victoria 65kms south of Mildura)

Mourquong Basin (13kms NW of Mildura, NSW)

SunSalt are eager to grow further and produce other value-added products from salt and bitterns. The team believe they can produce and market more salt from the Interception Scheme disposal basins.

SunSalt believes with its extensive expertise it is in a good position to assist further in removing salt from the saline waters of inland Australia should the opportunity arise.
