Back to Potash Facilities


Esterhazy is home to our flagship potash site and mines one of the best ore deposits in the world. Two sites, K1 and K2 (named after the element symbol for potassium ‘K’) have supplied potash to global customers for decades. Currently, a third mine is being built, sensibly named K3.

Underground mining operations at K1 and K2 ended in June, 2021. An overland conveyance system carries K3 ore to the existing K1 and K2 mills. As development continues at K3, operations will incrementally shift to the new, state-of-the-art mine.


Leadership Team

Located in the South East corner of Saskatchewan, approximately 1,200 people work below or above ground to deliver millions of tonnes of potash to our global customers. As one of our low-cost-producers, Esterhazy is a key potash asset for the company.
