Special guests were welcomed by Mosaic Company this (Wed) afternoon at the Saskatchewan Potash Interpretive Centre in Esterhazy.
A program and tour of the new mine was held to mark the milestone being the new multi billion dollar K3 potash project.
On February 16th, 2017 potash was reached over 3 thousand feet below ground at the K3 site near Esterhazy after 5 years of work to complete the 2 production shafts, K1 and K2.
The K3 production shafts are the first to be sunk in Saskatchewan in nearly 50 years.
Upon completion of K3, Mosaic’s operation in Esterhazy is expected to be the largest, most competitive underground potash mine in the world.
