Mosaic says Colonsay potash mine to resume production
An idled potash mine east of Saskatoon is expected to resume production in the coming days. A spokesperson for Mosaic said the company plans to resume production at its Colonsay, Saskatchewan, mine by mid-January, however an exact date is not yet known.

The decision to resume production was made because Mosaic projects 2017 will be a stronger year for the potash industry.

“We expect supply reconciliation and demand growth will result in a productive operating environment and are optimistic that 2017 will be a stronger year for the potash industry,” a Mosaic spokesperson said in a statement. “Our philosophy is always to match supply with our customers demand.”

The site was idled last July when more than 300 workers were temporarily laid off – those employees were back on the job in early December.
