Brazil Potash

As the world’s population continues to grow and there is less arable land available per person, Brazil’s agriculture productivity will only grow in its strategic importance to global food supply. Potash is an essential nutrient to grow food and therefore a key ingredient in Brazil’s ongoing agriculture success. When crops are harvested, nutrients are removed from the soil. Potash helps to make the soil healthy and productive and having a major new domestic source of this fertilizer located on existing shipping routes will in turn help to make Brazil healthy and productive.

About The Company

Brazil is the world’s second largest and fastest growing market for potash but imports 95% of its needs from mines located 13,000 to 20,000 kilometers away.

The Project

 

Brazil Potash Corporation holds exclusive title to a world-class scale potash basin located in Brazil only 8 kilometers from a major river system that will be used to transport initial planned production of 2.4MTpa on river barges to farmers in Brazil. Based on today’s depressed global oil prices and shipping rates, Brazil Potash is able to mine, process and deliver its potash for the same cost as importers logistics costs alone! This substantial and sustainable logistics cost advantage will increase with anticipated global raising oil prices and results in a Green House Gas (GHG) emission savings of roughly 508kTpa.

Brazil Potash has completed a NI 43-101 compliant Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS), Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), obtained the Preliminary Social and Environmental License (LP) and acquired majority of the land required for the plant and port. The company has NI 43-101 compliant proven and probable reserves supporting 34 years of mine life based on drilling only ~10% of the land package held.

About The Project

At Brazil Potash, we want to encourage and support local engagement to ensure that the voices of all stakeholders are being heard.

Sustainability & Community

 

At Brazil Potash, we are committed to being a proactive and responsible member of the community. We know it is important to our shareholders, our employees and our neighbors to be assured that Brazil Potash is acting as a good corporate citizen, encouraging open communication with all stakeholders and identifying ways to contribute to the community.

It is anticipated that development of the Autazes potash mine will directly create well over one thousand jobs during construction and more than one thousand jobs during operation. Indirect job creation is expected to be three to four times this amount as local entrepreneurs open businesses such as restaurants, shops, lodging and skilled trade services to cater to the new workforce.
