The company continues to monitor the potash price environment, which shows some positive signs for price improvement, as it continues the process to update initial capital costs and operating costs during the balance of 2019 in order to position the company to advance the development of Wynyard Potash project in Saskatchewan, Canada, when feasible.
Progress on the development of the Proteos Nitrogen project in Saskatchewan continues at a steady pace as land assembly for the project site continues, to be followed by environmental baseline field work, technology provider selection and the preparation of an independent feasibility study to solidify the technical project and establish initial project economics. The company is continuing discussions with local agricultural industry partners regarding their potential participation in Proteos Nitrogen.
