Western Potash Corp. (TSX:WRX) is building Canada's most efficient potash solution mine. Utilizing innovative selective solution mining technologies, Western plans to develop the world-class Milestone potash deposit in an ecologically sustainable, economically efficient, and socially responsible manner. Western Potash Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Western Resources Corporation, is headquartered in Regina, Saskatchewan. Western Potash Corporation was established in April 2017 with the acquisition of over 148,000 acres of Crown and Freehold mineral leases in Saskatchewan.
Implementing a three-stage development plan, Western plans to exploit the Milestone potash field with innovative selective solution mining technique resulting in potash production of 146,000 tomes per annum. The Phase I model will then be expanded and scaled up for Phase II at 1.4 million tons per annual, and finally duplicated in Phase III and IV for a total capacity of 2.8 million tons per annum.
