1965 Saskatchewan Potash Show

[Download is below]

In 1965 potash was forecasted to change Saskatchewan’s economy and the first ever “Saskatchewan Potash Show” was held in Saskatoon.  Below are scans of the 32-page Star Phoenix supplement created for the event – they provide a glimpse into what potash was doing for the province at that time and what it was expected to do in the future.

There are 2 versions posted below – (1) very large and (2) much-smaller file sizes
When published, newspapers had a much larger format than today’s, so each page was scanned twice – once as one very-large-file jpeg per page (20 mb per scan) and another as a much smaller 2-part PDF per page (less than 1 mb per scan).

I would like to thank Steve Halabura, one of Saskatchewan’s leading resource geologists, for working with me to scan this historical document. Steve is also known as the new “Mr. Potash” given his involvement in potash’s recent resurgence. He’s also a student of history and is preparing a series of short articles for me, which look into the history of potash in Saskatchewan I will post these in the coming months and base some radio commentaries on them. Contact him through his LinkedIn profile or his website at http://www.conceptforge.ca/ .

If the “b” items appear upside down, right click on the image an option to rotate clockwise should appear, or try simultaneously hitting “ctrl” “shift” and “+” keys twice and the item should rotate into position.
