About Brazil Potash

Brazil Potash has advanced its large-scale development stage potash project to a near construction ready state. Brazil is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing consumers of potash but imports 98% of its needs at high cost. As a result, over 1.3 million tonnes of Greenhouse Gas emissions are unnecessarily generated from maritime transportation and potash production in jurisdictions with higher emission factors.  Brazil Potash’s sylvanite ore body is in Brazil beside a major river, which management anticipates will enable the company to extract, process and deliver potash for the same cost that importers pay for transportation alone.  The company has completed a feasibility study, EISA and has obtained a majority of the permits required for project construction.
