K +S Potash breaks ground on mine in Bethune
By paNOW staff
The K + S Potash company has officially broken ground on the first new Saskatchewan potash mine in 40 years.
The K+S group held a ground-breaking ceremony on Tuesday at the Legacy mine project near Bethune, about 60 kilometres northwest of Regina.
The $3.25-billion project run by the German-owned fertilzer company, is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs during peak construction and employ 300 people when the operation hits full production.
Production from the Legacy mine is expected to begin in 2015 and ramp up over the next few years.
