Progress Continues as Boulby Hits New Production Record

“We continue to progress in establishing our position as the world leader in developing the potential of Polysulphate to meet the needs of the farming industry across the world.”

That is how Malcolm Mewett, Vice President and General Manager at ICL Boulby, describes the financial report for the three months to June, revealing that the mine achieved record second quarter Polysulphate production of 267 thousand metric tonnes. This follows on from record production figures for both the fourth quarter in 2022 and first quarter of this year.

ICL Boulby remains the world’s first and only producer of the multi-nutrient mineral polyhalite—marketed ats Polysulphate—which is now sold across five continents and is the only commercial source of the mineral which provides a unique combination of sulphur, potassium, magnesium and calcium.

Said Mr Mewett “Once again this demonstrates that we are continuing to move forward in building a firm future for Boulby, following on from our strong performance in 2022, when our production rose by 21 per cent, and underlining the increasing importance of our products in meeting the needs of farmers and growers in many different countries.”
