A new mine in Saskatchewan will change the way potash is produced and sold.
The Saskatoon-based Gensource Potash Corporation plans to build a mine between Eyebrow and Tugaske, about one hour northwest of Moose Jaw. The Vanguard One project is currently in the financing phase and if everything goes as planned, construction is expected to begin this spring.
Construction will create about 150 jobs and should last approximately 1.5 years, with an expected completion date of late 2020. Once operational, the mine would create 45 to 48 full-time jobs with production starting in early 2021.
