Our CAD$14 billion (US$10.5 billion) investment in the Jansen project will deliver a potash mine in Saskatchewan designed to maximise sustainability. The Jansen site, of which we own 100 per cent, is located approximately 140 kilometers east of Saskatoon. For potash, a new commodity for BHP, Jansen is key to our long-term growth ambitions.
Committed to Saskatchewan
BHP is committed to contributing to a strong and sustainable Saskatchewan by leveraging the province's strengths in the economy, talent and expertise. We are proud to be an active member of the local community and have contributed over CAD$50 million since 2015 to support initiatives in the province, including through Opportunities Agreements with six First Nations communities.
Potash is an essential resource
The Jansen mine will produce potash
As the world’s population rises, access to arable land decreases and diets improve, potash is essential for more sustainable farming. At a time when fertilisers enriched by potash are critical for food security, BHP is well positioned to become one of the leading potash producers in the world.
Careers at Jansen
We are building an operational workforce that reflects the communities we’re part of. This includes maintaining a gender balanced2 workforce and achieving our target of 20 per cent Indigenous employee participation at Jansen by FY2026.
