Mining Potash for Fertilizer Advancing Mining

Jun 26, 2014 Today, potash comes from either underground or solution mining. Underground potash deposits come from evaporated sea beds. Boring machines dig out the ore, which is transported to the surface to the processing mill, where the raw ore is crushed and refined to extract the potassium salts.

Geoalcali Potash Mining Quick guide to potash

Underground mining is the most common form of potash mining accounting for over 80% of global potash production. It is the extraction of mineral resources that takes place beneath the surface. The most widely used methods involve the use of shafts, tunnels, room and pillar extraction, cut and fill mining and sublevel stoping.
