LONDON (ICIS)--K+S does not expect to resume extraction and surface production at its Unterbreizbach potash site in ?xml:namespace>
K+S suspended operations at the site on 1 October after three miners died from exposure to carbon dioxide (CO2) gas following routine blasting works at the mine. The CO2, which is bound in the mine’s potash salts, was set free during the blasting.
In an update, K+S said that it was still working to ventilate the mine and remove remaining CO2.
The Kassel-based firm added that the suspension at Unterbreizbach did not affect deliveries to customers as existing orders will be met by other K+S plants.
