The Mosaic Company to Discontinue Production of Muriate of Potash At Carlsbad, New Mexico Facility

The Mosaic Company announced that it has decided to permanently discontinue production of muriate of potash at its Carlsbad, New Mexico facility. The final date for production is expected to be December 31, 2014. The decision is based on the quality of the ore in the Carlsbad basin and the age of the facility's infrastructure. These combined factors make it difficult for the operations to remain competitive in an already challenging global market. The company's larger potash production facilities at Esterhazy, Belle Plaine and Colonsay in Saskatchewan, Canada will continue to produce MOP. The company's plan for the immediate future is to transition the Carlsbad facility to the exclusive production of its highly valued K-Mag product line. K-Mag is a premium potash product that currently represents approximately 70% of production at the Carlsbad facility.
