Work Continues on Potash Mine in Sussex

The economy in Sussex continues to enjoy a nice boost with between four and six hundred construction workers in the municipality. They are working on the new mine for the Potash Corporation which is scheduled for partial start-up in 2011 and running at full capacity by 2013. Mayor Ralph Carr tells CHSJ News, not all the labourers are staying in the Dairytown so the wealth is being spread around.

The mine currently in operation has been plagued with water problems for several years now but Carr says the company gave no indication they plan to shut it down. They are now pumping the excess water into the closed mine in Norton and then into the Bay of Fundy.
