Potash Mine Near Moab, Utah earthobservatory.nasa.gov
As the water evaporates, it leaves behind potassium salt deposits. Over geologic time, sediment buries these deposits and they become potash ore. The ore at Moab—which actually lies about 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) below the surface and within the Paradox Formation—began to
19. Potash Ore Grades – Check the Units
Having worked with the potash industry for many years, I have reviewed numerous geological reports for projects in Canada, Asia, Russia, and Africa. One of the curious things that I have seen is the reporting of resource grades in two different units either as potassium oxide (K2O) or potassium chloride (KCl). Is it K2O or Continue reading

The potash ore is called sylvinite which consists of a mixture of halite, sylvite), carnallite and an insoluble clay‐like material that largely consists of anhydrite with lesser quartz, dolomite and clay minerals. Sylvite is the principal ore mineral. Iron oxide staining is pervasive and ranges from pale flesh to

The number of potentially mineable and economically exploitable buried potash deposits is surprisingly large, and they are found stered throughout the world. The "quality" of the deposits, however, varies widely in regard to their size (ore reserves), grade (mineable %K 2 O), and economic factors such as their loion and the cost of
