York Potash Limited (YPL) intend to build the first potash mine in the UK for over 40 years – a plan
for North Yorkshire that has both local and national significance. A state-of-the-art new mine to
extract polyhalite, a unique multi-nutrient form of potash, will not only safeguard UK supplies, but
will also boost the local, regional and UK national economies.
This talk describes the proposed mine and ground investigations carried out to date and discusses
the various geological, geotechnical and hydrogeological aspects of the tunnel investigations.
