Joint meeting with BTS
The annual joint meeting with the British Tunnelling Society, to be held at The Institution of Civil Engineers, 1 Great George St, London. A presentation on the North Yorkshire Polyhalite Project will be given by Simon Carter of Sirius Minerals. The opportunities presented by a world-class fertiliser resource, close to a deep-water port, in a stable and developed country are substantial. The extraordinary steps taken to protect the local environment with the mine-site and the majority of the transport route located in a National Park, have presented a number of challenges that had to be solved by the team at Sirius Minerals, together with their engineering and construction partners. A small group of thoughtful and committed individuals therefore navigated these challenges to the point where these solutions are in place and ready to commence construction of the Mineral Transport System in early 2018. To preserve the character and tranquillity of the North York Moors, the conveyor will be routed more than 300m below the surface in a tunnel. This combined conveyor and tunnel form the minerals transport system (MTS) and ensures that none of the ore sees daylight from the moment it is mined 1 500 m below the ground to the point where it arrives on the Wilton industrial complex on Teesside. The presentation by Sirius Minerals Chief Development Officer, Simon Carter, is the story of this journey to date and the vision of the business to become one of the leading producers of multi-nutrient fertilizers.
