Highfield receives permit for muriate of potash mine in Spain, Argus states

Argus has reported that a prospective potash producer Highfield Resources has received its environmental permit for its 1 million tpy Muga potash project in Spain.

The permit was key to move the project forward, and Highfield Resources will now work on securing a mining concession and construction permits, as well as completing the final project design.

Highfield expects construction to start in one year, with first production projected to start at the end of 2022. The project is in a favourable location, close to port and the premium muriate of potash market of west Europe. The region is served by some nearby existing mines, but European muriate of potash production is declining, as many of the mines are expensive to operate.

Mineral resources at Muga are pegged at 235 million t of 12.3pc K20, with 109 million t of proven and probable reserves at 10.2pc K20. The project is currently for a muriate of potash mine, but it could potentially produce both muriate of potash and sulphate of potash.
