Lift-off for Highfield Resources
Highfield Resources is developing one of the world’s lowest-cost, highest-margin potash mines in northern Spain’s Ebro Basin, and at long last, all the signs indicate the company is ready to take-off.
There have been a few false dawns in the past around when construction can begin, but Ignacio Salazar, who was appointed CEO last July, gives the impression of a man with a spring in his step.
“All the answers to the final section of the documentation for the mining concession are signed, sealed and delivered to the authorities. And the omens look good,” he said.
“There have been no red flags, and we think we’ll get the green light in the first half of this year. Hopefully earlier, perhaps in a matter of weeks. And then we could start construction in the second half.”
