Larmon Pty Ltd trading as SunSalt/Murray River Salt is a privately owned company started by Duncan & Jan Thomson. The business commenced operating in 1983 producing crude salt from the unlimited supply of underground saline water at Hattah NW Victoria. Due to the increased salt sales and lack of surface area at Hattah the company started operations at the Mourquong Basin NSW (ML1512) in 1997.
With greater than thirty years’ experience in inland saline water extraction SunSalt has gained significant knowledge and developed distinctive techniques to effectively and efficiently produce salt/salt by-products from the inland brines of the Murray Darling Basin. In 2004 the company were winners of the Engineers of Australia Award for demonstrated processes to assist in combatting salinity.
The company continues to grow and now operates at three locations with a competent team of employees combined with supporting many local businesses.
