Western Potash Corp. Mining News

Veteran mine developer joins Western Potash

Western Potash has brought in one of the big guns in the mining industry to develop its Milestone potash project in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Global interest in Western Potash-owned Milestone

In an article published on BNWnews.ca focussing on potash industry developments in the wake of continuing high prices and record food demand, Western Potash, with arguably the world’s most advanced ‘independent’ potash project, is highlighted as a company getting a lot of attention from potential state-funded buyers.

Western Potash rally runs out of steam despite takeover talk and Milestone milestone

Despite a pre-feasibility study packed with good news and an ever-louder drumbeat suggesting an imminent takeout, Western Potash sank 6.67% on Wednesday, a day the broader market managed to keep losses to less than 3%. Western Potash said on Monday it is upping the projected capacity of the Milestone project by 12% to 2.8 million tonnes per year and surprised by lowering its capex and opex cost projections. Scotia Capital commented that state-owned entities from Brazil, India and China could be interested in Western Potash to secure supply outside of Canpotex and Russian producers which together control around 57% of global supply.

No news is good news for Western Potash – jumps 18% and no-one knows why

Stock boards were buzzing on Tuesday as traders tried to figure out why Western Potash Corp. was soaring 18.2% without any news about the $200 million firm that would drive the share higher. Despite having nothing to go on, speculators had swapped 2.3m shares by 3pm in Toronto, 1.5 times usual volumes. The junior player in Saskatchewan’s potash industry is in the pre-feasability stage of its 940 million tonne Milestone Project, but some doubt if WPX would be able to muster the finances and logistics to go up against the giants operating in the province.

Western Potash Corp. (TSX.V: WPX, FSE: AHE) is pleased to announce that it has completed the purchase of a large parcel of surface lands, advancing the development of the plant site facility for its Milestone potash solution mining project in southern Saskatchewan.
