Potash Ridge is a Canadian based exploration and development company with a unique opportunity to develop a mine and processing facility to produce sulphate of potash (SOP) and an alumina-rich material. SOP is a premium priced potash fertilizer which is chloride free.
The Corporation’s Blawn Mountain Project consists of four areas of surface mineable alunite mineralization in the State of Utah. Alunite is a sulfate mineral rich in both SOP and alumina.
Located in a mining friendly jurisdiction with established infrastructure nearby, the project covers approximately 11,550 acres of state-owned land and has a known permitting process. Extensive development was completed in the 1970s including a mine plan, feasibility study and 3-year pilot plant operation.
Potash Ridge has a highly qualified and proven management team in place with significant financial, project management and operational experience and the ability to take projects into production.
Valleyfield Fertilizer Corporation was acquired by Potash Ridge in August, 2015. Valleyfield Fertilzer's strategy is to build and operate fertilizer production facilities in locations ideally suitable for sourcing raw materials such as muriate of potash (MOP) and sulphuric acid and selling two end products: sulphate of potash (SOP) and hydrochloric acid (HCL). The Company intends to build a 40,000 tpa SOP plant as its first production facility using the proven Mannheim process.
