ACEC-SK Young Professionals Nutrien Mine Tour February 27,2018

Young Professionals Group

Potash Mine Tour

On Tuesday February 27, 2018 the ACEC-SK YP Group and Nutrien hosted a tour of Nutrien(formerly PotashCorp) Allan Mine Site. The attendeess were sent to the mine face with a mechanical engineer and one of the mine geologists. They were able to see the mining machine and a good portion of the mine itself. The mine tour was followed by a surface refinery tour where a refinery engineer and the refinery metallurgist took them around to every part of the mill. This was followed by a lunch provided by Nutrien.

Overall the tour went well, the attendees thought it was "really cool", they enjoyed driving in the buggy underground, and thought it was a nice change of pace from the office.
