Gensource Sustainable Potash Mining Innovation | Geology
Traditional potash extraction is carried out by either open cast drag-mining, or subsurface solution mining. Typically, solution mining requires large evaporation ponds at surface to concentrate the potash brought up from below so that it can be extracted. These ponds are often dyed a spectacular blue colour to enhance evaporation Figures 1 and

In 2012, potash mining provided about 1,500 jobs in New Mexico, generating a payroll of over $98 million. Two companies in the area operate three active conventional potash mines and one solution underground mine.
Ethiopian (Danakhil) Potash Project, Afar - Mining
Mining will be carried out either through solution mining or conventional mining, if the deposit’s depth is increased further. the drilling programme is being conducted at the potash horizons closer to the current resources. The potash horizons hosted in the centre of the evaporite basin are also being tested. Top 5 Most Read.
The Milestone Project | Western Potash Corp
The 100% owned Milestone Project property is located approximately 30 kilometers southeast of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada, a region with some of the largest producing potash solution mines in the world. The Company has initiated the construction and operation of Phase I of a world-class potash mine in an ecologically sustainable, economically efficient, and socially responsible manner.
What is Solution Mining? SMRI views solution mining as mining of underground, water-soluble minerals, usually using one or more drilled wells to dissolve the minerals with water (not by using acids used in metal ore leaching). Minerals such as salt, potash, trona, and magnesium salts may be produced by pumping saturated fluid from underground
Economic geology of southern Saskatchewan potash mines
Almost all of the potash production from the Saskatchewan mines is controlled by two corporations, the Mosaic Company and Nutrien Ltd., which was formed upon the 2018 merger between the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan and Agrium Inc. Aside from these mining conglomerates, there is the solution mine operated by K + S Potash Canada.

Potash Pipe Solutions Potash Needs Corrosion Resistant Pipes Processing potash ore involves a variety of stages, each with its own operational conditions including ore composition, particle size, solid concentration, temperature, and chemical composition.
Potash Industry Mining & Processing Equipment | JNE Welding
Alternatively, solution mining pumps solution into the potash deposits and pumps the dissolved potash back to the surface for recovery. Potash can be processed either chemically, mechanically or a combination of both. The mechanical method involves flotation and the chemical method involves hot leaching.

Our Project - Karnalyte Resources - Karnalyte Resources
The Wynyard Potash Project is a Carnallite/Sylvinite solution mining project in central Saskatchewan. Using a modular approach, a 2.125 million tonnes per year plant will be constructed in 3 phases beginning with the 625,000 tpy Phase One. The project will produce a premium white granular potash product (KCl 97) with low sodium content.
Potash | The Canadian Encyclopedia
Potash is generally mined via one of two methods, conventional underground mining or solution mining. Because conventional underground mining can only be carried out to a depth of 1,200 m, solution mining is used in deeper mines.
North Atlantic Potash | Potash Production in Sask, Canada
North Atlantic Potash is committed to exploration and mining activities that benefit all of our stakeholders. Our business was established in early 2008 through the acquisition of potash permits which have been evaluated in order to allocate the best locations for developing a potash mine.
Solution Mining - Karnalyte Resources
At this point the oil control blanket is raised to allow mining of the potash bearing zone. With dissolution rates 5 times faster than salt, hot water will preferentially dissolve carnallite over salt. Solution mining of carnallite is advantageous due to: scalable mine
