Canada Jansen Potash Project


We hold exploration permits and mining leases covering approximately 9,400km2 in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Our Canadian operation consist of the Jansen Potash Project, located approximately 140 kilometres east of Saskatoon in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. We have announced an investment of US$5.7 billion in the Jansen Stage 1 project.

We own 100 per cent of the project. Its large resource endowment provides the opportunity to develop it in stages, with anticipated initial capacity of 4.3 - 4.5 Mtpa. The demand for potash could double over the coming decades to meet our population's needs in a land-scarce, nutrient-depleted world.
