Commissioning of Legacy potash mine underway: K+S (Saskatoon StarPhoenix – August 24, 2016)

Just over a month after a major accident derailed K+S Potash Canada’s plan to bring its Legacy solution mine into production by the end of the year, the company has begun commissioning the massive $4.1 billion potash project.

“Legacy will make an important contribution to the future viability of K+S,” Ralf Bethke, chairman of the supervisory board of K+S AG, K+S Potash Canada’s parent company, said in a statement.

“The new plant will ensure that the company has access to high-grade resources for generations and will strengthen the position of K+S on the international potash market sustainably.”
