Description
Sirius Minerals are building the first deep mine in the UK for over 40 years. The mine will extract polyhalite mineral which is sold as a multi-nutrient fertilizer. The project consists of two deep shafts, a 36km underground mineral transport system and new handling and export facilities on Teesside.
Sirius Minerals Plc is a FTSE listed company focussed on the development of its polyhalite mining project near Whitby, North Yorkshire. The polyhalite resource of 2.66 billion tonnes, as defined according to the JORC code, represents seven per cent of the Project’s area of interest. Polyhalite will be extracted via two deep mine shafts and transported outside of the North York Moors National Park to Teesside on a conveyer belt system in an underground tunnel. It will then be granulated at a materials handling facility, with the majority being exported to overseas markets. The Company is aiming to achieve first product from the mine by the end of 2021, ramping up to an initial production capacity of 10 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) and then full production of 20 Mtpa. Construction is already underway across the multiple project sites and once in operation the mine and facilities will employ over 1000 people.
Asher Haynes is Project Geologist at the company, working on ground investigations for input in to the design and build of aspects of the project. Asher is from the local area and joined the company on an undergraduate programme whilst studying at Durham.
