Photo of the Day: Ground opens up at potash mine

Steve Mitchell on ICIS Fertilizers has just sent me this photo of the further collapse last week of the Berezniki 1 potash mine in Russia’s Perm region. You can read about it in Rebecca’s article on ICIS news. The sinkhole was caused by flooding, and is now threatening the nearby railway line. Must be a bit worrying for the workers in those buildings too.

    Hi my name is Sophie Harwin and I work for The Field magazine at IPC Media. We are running a feature on harvests and the Berezniki sinkhole, Russia has been mentioned in the article. I was wondering if it would be possible to send me the high res image you have of this image please for us to use?

    Kind regards
    Sophie
