Bethune, Saskatchewan – K+S Potash Canada (KSPC) is pleased to announce a long-term growth plan, part of the K+S Group’s global strategy, focused on planning for a sustained increase of potash production at its Bethune mine. The final production capacity is intended to grow continuously over the next couple of decades, and is currently targeted toward 4 million tonnes per year, effectively doubling the current production output of the operation.
“Saskatchewan has the food, fuel and fertilizer the world needs, and we are thankful for partners like K+S who will continue to play an important role in sustainable food security conversations world-wide,” says Premier Scott Moe.
“Today’s announcement represents another vote of confidence in Saskatchewan as a global leader in sustainable, responsible potash production,” says Energy and Resources Minister Bronwyn Eyre. “We look forward to continuing to work with K+S as we grow our potash sector and our economy.”
KSPC is currently undertaking a feasibility stage, mapping out the future milestones of growth and timelines for supporting projects. The company will work closely with provincial and federal governments during this phase to ensure it remains in a successful position to sustain future growth.
The intended growth will also provide KSPC opportunities for innovation that will support the business in its journey toward being a world-class potash producer and future leader in climate change responsibility while sustainably feeding the growing global population.
