Brazil Potash is aiming to reduce Brazil’s reliance on foreign, particularly Canadian, imports of potash to meet its agricultural needs by developing domestic mines. The move could reinforce the Brazilian economy and cut down on the environmental cost of transporting potash across the Americas, and establish the company as a key source of potash in a region that has historically struggled to meet its own demand for the mineral. We investigate.
Also in the next issue: President Biden is fighting for a $2tn US infrastructure bill, expected to positively impact global mining commodity markets. We speak with experts to discover the possible outcomes of this decision and its likely reflection on world supply chains. In addition, we ask how $36m of copper blister from a Swiss company got stolen by organised criminals in Turkey before it reached China.
Plus, we speak to education consultants New Leaf Technologies to find out about Covid-19's impact on eLearning, find out what Peru's presidential election means for the mining industry, and examine how Greenland's election has shifted mining policy.
