Our Projects

As the global population grows, so does our need for food. The fertilizer industry will play an increasingly important role in filling this need. We are focused on investing in nitrogen, phosphate and potash production to help farmers meet the challenge of feeding the world.

Since 2009, we have explored potash deposits in Saskatchewan which is home to some of the world's richest potash deposits. The deposits we've examined have the potential to produce three to four million tonnes of potash per year for over 40 years. 

On December 19, 2016, Vale announced the sale of fertilizer assets to Mosaic, which includes the Kronau Project.

This is a very complex and large transaction that is expected to take until the end of 2017 to be completed, and the Kronau Project is just one part of this transaction. A transition process will eventually be defined and we will do our best to keep you informed.

The Kronau Project remains committed to be a good neighbour and will continue to maintain its land and mineral assets.

We are grateful for the support that has been given to us from all of our stakeholders and we value the relationships that we have developed over these past few years.
