Potassium Mining | Processing Equipment | Flow Chart

Potash is any salt, mined or manufactured, which contains the element potassium (K) in water-soluble form. Primary potash minerals include potassium chloride (KCl or sylvite), potassium sulfate [K 2 SO 4 or sulfate of potash (SO P), usually a manufactured product], and potassium-magnesium sulfate [K 2 SO 4 •2MgSO 4 or langbeinite or double sulfate of potash magnesia (SO PM or K-Mag)]

Solution mining can substitute for conventional shaft mining in potash deposits that occur below 3,000 feet. Vertical pipes are drilled to supply water to the ore zone and a return pipe brings the saturated brine to the surface where it is evaporated in surface ponds leaving potash. Uses.
