Belarusian Brands: In the Mine of Belaruskali

Thanks to the deposits of potash salt which are believed to be the richest on Earth, robust production of ores and modern mineral fertilizers, Belarus is one of the top ten suppliers on the global potash market. There are three large deposits of potash salt in the Belarusian Polesye, i.e. Oktyabrskoye, Petrikovskoye and Starobinskoye which is the largest one. The history of the famous brand Belaruskali started from the exploration of the Starobinskoye field. Over the decades of its existence an underground metropolis with the tunnels of mines, conveyor lines and even a unique underground hospital has been built near Soligorsk which is the first town of miners in Belarus. At present the total area of minefields on the territory of the Starobinskoye potash deposit is about 600 square kilometers. Since 2012 Belaruskali has been developing a large-scale investment project to build a new mining and processing plant near Petrikov which can become the second town of miners in the country.

In 2014 Belaruskali produced a record-high volume of fertilizers and became the world’s leader in potash mining and production. In H1 2015 every fifth tonne of potash fertilizers available on the global market was made in Belarus.

The process of mining potash salt can be seen in our video from the mine of Belaruskali…
