President and general manager, operations Sam Farris said,  “We’ve experienced a lot of changes moving from a project into operations, but the one constant has been our strong team. We’ve learned a lot together.”

The Bethune potash mine owned by K+S has been operating since the spring of 2017 near the town of the same name. The company has a total of slightly more than 400 employees at the mine, its Saskatoon headquarters, and at a small logistics office in Vancouver.

“We’re proud to be recognized among some of our peers in the industry as Top Employers in the province,” said Dan Ross, manager, human resources. “We believe the mining industry has and will continue to offer great opportunities to the people of Saskatchewan. We’re happy to be here.”
