Jansen Stage 1 will produce 4.35 megatons of potash every year

Jansen is 100 per cent owned by BHP. Its large resource endowment provides the opportunity to develop the project in phases. Jansen Stage 1 is the first of four potential phases and includes an initial investment of CAD$7.5 billion. Once Jansen Stage 1 commences production in 2026, it will generate 4.35 megatons of potash every year.

Our purpose is to bring people and resources together to build a better world. We’re not just building one of the world’s largest potash mines, it’s going to be the most sustainable as well.

At BHP, we believe success comes from partnering with suppliers, local communities and First Nations to innovate, collaborate and lift our shared business value. In doing so, we’re working together to tackle important issues like social value, climate change as well as inclusion and diversity.

Where we’re located

BHP’s potash project is located in Jansen, about 140 kilometres east of Saskatoon in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada.

With respect and gratitude, we operate in Treaty 4, 6, 19 and on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of Coast Salish peoples and the homeland of the Métis.

We’re creating opportunities for the local and Indigenous workforce as well as businesses

Jansen Stage 1 creates business opportunities for local and Indigenous companies, as well as jobs for the province. Diversity and inclusion are central to building the project’s workforce, which will peak at around 3,500 workers during the construction phase.

A partnership formed to bring the right expertise and experience to the Jansen project

The Hatch Bantrel Joint Venture (HBJV) is a partnership formed to bring together the right expertise and experience to the Jansen Stage 1 Project. The partnership selected by BHP will provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) for the mining, processing, and non-processing infrastructure for the potash project in Saskatchewan.
