Belarus ranks third in global potassium salt exports, sharing the top 3 with Canada and Russia. Three potash salt deposits and two potash salt areas with total reserves of 7.5 billion tons have been discovered in the Minsk and Gomel regions. Besides, a new deposit is currently being developed in Starobin.<br>Despite frequent changes in world prices for fertilisers, the country's potash industry is developing quite dynamically, which is contributed to by two investment projects that are currently being implemented. One of them - the construction of the Nezhin mining and processing complex - was launched in the autumn. The other is the industrial development of a potash salt deposit in Petrikov with the construction and commissioning of a mining and processing complex. The project is being implemented in the Gomel region by Belaruskali.
