Potash One has submitted an environmental impact statement to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment for its proposed $1.9bn Legacy potash solution mine, near Belle Plaine in Southern Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Canada-based company said it is expecting the final decision on environmental approval before the end of 2010.

The Legacy project has a measured resource of 29 million tons of recoverable KCl, an indicated mineral resource of 222 million tons of KCl and an inferred mineral resource of 853 million tons of KCl.

The company has completed a pre-feasibility study of the Legacy project, which is adjacent to the largest producing solution potash mine in the world.
