Sirius Minerals

Through the development of its North Yorkshire polyhalite project, Sirius Minerals will become a world leading producer of polyhalite, a unique multi-nutrient fertilizer containing potassium, sulphur, magnesium and calcium. The £2.4 billion project is constructing Woodsmith Mine – south of Whitby, North Yorkshire – to extract polyhalite, and a tunnel system to transport it to a materials handling facility and harbour at Teesside. The polyhalite deposit is the world's largest and highest grade. At full production the Project will create over 1,000 direct jobs and many more indirectly. It has the potential to generate over £2 billion of annual exports for the UK.
