BHP of Australia is speeding up construction of a potash mine at Jansen, Sask, now aiming to have it producing nine to 12months earlier.
That means it will be marketing about 4.35 million tonnes a year beginning in early 2027.
And the company said it is also considering plans for the second phase that would add another four million tonnes per year.
“We are not saying we will do that today. We will wait and see how the market unfolds,” said company chief financial officer David Lamont.
