MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR PROJECTS Several multi-million dollar projects in the area are helping drive the local economy:
K+S POTASH CANADA LEGACY MINE The mine is located 58 kilometers north of Moose Jaw, near the village of Bethune. Building of this $4.25B solution potash mine is well underway and the company plans to be operational by the fall of 2016. K+S Potash Canada’s head office is located in Saskatoon.
K+S, one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers with hundreds of opportunities, including: industrial mechanics, instrumentation mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, welders, and power engineers. Production positions will be of interest to those with skills training plus previous industrial experience.
