Mosaic reports production outage at Esterhazy K2 mine

Mosaic Co said on Friday an outage at its Esterhazy K2 potash mine in Saskatchewan will likely reduce production by 200,000-300,000 tonnes.

The disruption will impact second-quarter potash sales volumes, the world’s largest producer of finished phosphate products said.

The outage was caused by a skip, a device that transports potash to the surface.

Operations in the mine are expected to resume over the next few days, the company said.
