K+S Potash Canada is part of the K+S Group, a German-based company that has been mining and processing potash and salt for over 125 years. At our Bethune solution potash mine near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, K+S Potash Canada extracts potash crude salt which is further processed into three types of potassium chloride. Our products are used as natural fertilizers and compacted for use in a variety of industrial applications.
Bethune is the first greenfield potash mine in the Province of Saskatchewan in more than 40 years and enables K+S to produce high quality potash for generations to come. With this facility, K+S can more easily reach the markets in Asia, as well as North and South America, and is well-equipped for expansion of total capacity as markets grow.
Bethune is a solution mine. Solution mining is the process of mining underground water-soluble minerals by dissolving the minerals with water. The mineral-rich solution (called brine) is then extracted from the ground and the minerals are recovered from it.
