The Kronau Project’s final feasibility study has been completed. The company will now evaluate the results as part of determining the next steps for the project.
We remain committed to keeping our stakeholders informed as the Kronau Project further develops.
The potash discovery spans 51,840 hectares and is part of the Prairie Evaporite Formation, a geological layer that is located at 1,600 to 1,750 metres underground
We estimate the mine will produce some 3-4 million tonnes of potash per year for over 40 years while contributing significant economic benefits to the community
The core facilities site was chosen because its geology provides natural containment for brine within the tailings (waste) management area
Support infrastructure for the project will include water, power, natural gas, communications, and road and rail access
The project will use a dedicated combined heat and power plant during operations
We expect to employ up to 2,000 people on-site during construction and around 350 permanent employees for operations
We have been consulting with Aboriginal communities, rural municipalities and the general public about this project since 2011
On June 11, 2015 we honoured our commitment to the health and safety of our staff and communities by adding our name to the Saskatchewan Health & Safety Leadership Charter. The Charter advocates the continuous improvement of healthy and safe workplaces and communities. If the Kronau Project proceeds, we will continue to build an organizational culture that empowers employees to work safely. Signing the charter is a big step towards that goal.
