Mosaic will celebrate a major milestone at its potash mine near Esterhazy Wednesday.
After nearly five years, Mosaic’s K3 shafts hit the potash ore bed near Esterhazy this winter.
Mosaic says the new production shafts are the first to be sunk in Saskatchewan in almost 50 years.
Mosaic says K3 signifies the next 50 years for the company and its Esterhazy operations.
Upon completion of K3, Mosaic’s Esterhazy operation is expected to be the largest, most-competitive underground potash mine in the world.
Design capacity is 6.3 million tons of product or 19 million ore tons per year.
