Chief executive Brad Sampson spoke of the “the extremely high quality of the assets in the Sintoukola basin and the potential to bring an entirely new, globally significant potash district into production.”

He added: “I firmly believe that this a project that needs to be built, a combination of our high grade, shallow depth, and proximity to the coast means that we can produce MOP at, or amongst, the lowest operating costs anywhere in the world. Combined with the huge size of the resource this means that the basin can supply an increasing global demand for fertiliser for decades, and longer, to come.”
