600,000 to 700,000 tonnes of potash expected to be mined at Bethune this year
The new Bethune mine produced its first tonnes of marketable potash over the weekend.
The K+S-owned mine, located 60 kilometres northwest of Regina, is the first potash mine to open in Saskatchewan in 40 years. The company calls it “the most modern potash facility in the world.”
The mine held its grand opening in May.
