SASKATCHEWAN – Vancouver-based Encanto Potash Corp. and its partner the Muskowekwan First Nation in this province have asked Golder Associates to prepare two environmental reports for their solution potash project on the First Nation’s land.

Golder will produce a study to finalize the best way to supply water to the Muskowekwan potash project with regards to cost savings and environmental stewardship. The firm will also prepare an environmental impact study gap analysis to determine what needs to be done to complete the full EIS and safeguard the project.

Funding for the studies will come in part from the Canadian government through Indigenous Services Canada.

Encanto hopes to have the project construction ready by November 2019.
