Potash Meeting at Grays Harbor

By Karen Robes Meeks

Global resources company BHP will host an open house to discuss its plans for a potash export facility at Port of Grays Harbor’s Terminal 3 later this month.

BHP’s representatives will introduce what potash (potassium chloride) is, in addition to discussing the company’s work at the Jansen Potash Project in Saskatchewan, Canada, and its proposal for Terminal 3. A question-and-answer segment will follow the presentation.

“We commend BHP for holding this event as an opportunity for our local citizens and other interested parties to learn more about the proposed project and what it could mean for our community,” said Port Commissioner Stan Pinnick.

The meeting will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on September 14 at Hoquiam High School Commons, located at 501 W Emerson Ave. in Hoquiam.
