Potash mining in Saskatchewan - saskschoolsinfo

Most of the potash that is mined is used for fertilizer. Salt is separated from the potash and used for table salt, water softening salt, livestock salt and road de-icing salt. Potash is found over 1000 meters underground. A shaft is constructed from the surface so men and equipment can go underground.

Potash Mining • Gensource

Of the 11 potash mines in Saskatchewan, nine are conventional underground mining operations, which require underground equipment and personnel. The other two are solution mines, which involve pumping heated water through the ore body to dissolve the potash and pumping the resultant brine solution to a refinery for extraction.

How is Potash Mined? | Canpotex

Conventional mining usually occurs around 1,000 metres below the surface. Solution mining can access potash reserves at depths exceeding 1,600 metres below the earths' surface. The majority of Saskatchewan potash is mined by the conventional mining method, where large mining machines are used to extract the ore by cutting tunnels into the ore body.

Potash: Saskatchewan''s Red Gold - Shirley Collingridge

Today, potash is the name used for various soluble salts that contain potassium; Saskatchewan's potash-bearing ore is principally Sylvinite (39% KCl, 56% NaCl, 5% Clay). Potash is used agriculturally for fertilizer and feed, and industrially for computer screens, water softeners, soaps and de-icers.

Potash Solution Mining - saskmininged

The potash deposits originally crystallized from a saturated solution. • When the solution is saturated in potassium and the amount of water is decreased by evaporation the potassium salt will start to crystallize and precipitate out, so will the sodium salt.

Nov 19, 2009 · Potash is a soft rock that is mined by two different methods - conventional shaft mining (go down to the ore body and dig it out), and solution mining (drill a hole to the ore body, inject water, dissolve the ore and pump the potash rich solution out). Both methods require separation of the potash from the salt when the raw material is on surface.

Potash is produced in the United States from underground mines in New Mexico, solution mines in Michigan and Utah, and surface brines in Utah. Potash deposits in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota and Utah are under development for solution mining. Total world production of potash in 2010 was 33.7 million metric tons potassium oxide.

Ambitious Mining Project to Meet the Demand for Potash

Underground potash deposits come from evaporated sea beds. Boring machines dig out the ore, which is transported to the surface to the processing mill, where the raw ore is crushed and refined to extract the potassium salts. When deposits are located very deep in the earth, solution mining is used as an alternative to traditional underground ...
