Reuters reports that the shares were halted in October 2017 after the company became 100% owner of the Khemisset Potash Project, which is located in northern Morocco. Reportedly, the company had originally planned to raise just £4 million, but the issue was oversubscribed.
The project has a number of advantages, including shallow, cheap-to-exploit resources, as well as a strategic location in Morocco, where potash demand is reportedly expected to increase, and which offers access to both Europe and other markets.
