Watch this event

Through the development of its North Yorkshire polyhalite project, Sirius Minerals will become a world leading producer of polyhalite, a unique multi-nutrient fertilizer containing potassium, sulphur, magnesium and calcium.

The £3.2 billion project is constructing Woodsmith Mine – south of Whitby, North Yorkshire – to extract polyhalite, and a tunnel system to transport it to a materials handling facility and harbour at Teesside. The polyhalite deposit is the world's largest and highest grade.

This talk will offer an introduction to the project and offer an overview of the works to date that have the development of the mine site from a working farm into a world class construction project.

The project’s design strategy for shafts and the Mineral Transport System tunnels will also be covered, including some of the innovative measures used to enable a timely delivery of the mine extensive infrastructure.
