Potash mining in Saskatchewan generates $1.6 billion dollars in gross revenues, equivalent to $251 million dollars in wages and benefits, employing 3,400 workers directly or through contractors (Source: Saskatchewan Mining Association, 2000). The major share of the potash produced in Saskatchewan goes for export. The US is the major
Potash (especially potassium carbonate) has been used in bleaching textiles, making glass, and making soap, since about AD 500.Potash was principally obtained by leaching the ashes of land and sea plants. Beginning in the 14th century potash was mined in Ethiopia.One of the world's largest deposits, 140 to 150 million tons, is located in the Tigray's Dallol area.
The majority of fertilizer grade potash is processed using flotation processing. A second method, crystallization, is used mainly to produce Industrial and specialty-grade (white) potash. In both methods, impurities are removed from the potash ore, and the size of granules can be changed, but the final product is the same naturally-occurring mineral as was originally mined.
History. Potash has played an important role in both the development and economy of Saskatchewan for over 40 years. Potash was first discovered in Saskatchewan in the process of drilling for oil in the early 1940’s, although active potash exploration didn’t begin until 1951.
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. The raw ore is then conveyed to a production hoist where it is transferred to the surface for processing.

Saskatchewan, a size reduction to <9 mm would give an adequate liberation. POTASH ORE PROCESSING Meeting the needs of an exacting market The production of marketable potash from the basic ore may comprise a series of processes, including crushing and pre-screening, milling, flotation, salt leaching from the flotation
The primary methods of potash ore processing are flotation (mechanical method) and hot leaching (chemical method). JSC Belaruskali uses both methods: Productions Units 1, 2 and 3 process the potash ore by flotation and Production Unit 4 uses the hot leaching method.
In the Saskatchewan potash mining industry vast quantities of brine wastewater are generated from potash processing and mine inflow water. As treatment of such waste is prohibitively expensive, disposal in deep saline aquifers is the only readily available option.
Saskatchewan Mining produces many different types of useful ore and minerals. Potash. Potash is an important mineral to Saskatchewan and the world. The mineral's name refers to several forms of potassium salt, the most important being potassium chloride or KCL. It is one of the world's three important fertilizers. Used in combination with
