Sirius Minerals has announced the name of the mine at its North Yorkshire polyhalite project. The “Woodsmith Mine” name was unveiled today by Andrew Percy MP, the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse.
Highways contractors are to start enabling works for Sirius Minerals’ polyhalite project which will create over 1,000 jobs in the local area.
The capital funding requirement for our North Yorkshire polyhalite project has been reduced.
We have selected our preferred contractors for the mine site development and mineral transport system following a 19 month competitive tendering process.
A new independent trustee is being sought to join the board of the York Potash Foundation, which was set up as a community fund by Sirius Minerals.
