Saskatchewan Supplier Solutions for the Global Mining Industry

Unmatched Resources

Saskatchewan’s mineral sales totalled 6.7 billion in 2017. According to Natural Resources Canada, the value of Saskatchewan’s mineral production was the fourth highest in Canada.

The province has the largest potash industry in the world, accounting for about one third of annual global production and hosting nearly half of the world’s known reserves. Saskatchewan is also one of the world’s largest uranium producers, with the Athabasca Basin containing the largest, high-grade uranium deposits in the world.

Saskatchewan is the third-largest producer of coal in Canada, producing an average of 10 million tonnes per year.

The province is also home to one of the world’s largest fields of diamond-bearing kimberlite. This discovery has led to extensive exploration and evaluation.

The Seabee mining operation produced 83,998 ounces of gold in 2017, the fourth consecutive year of record annual production. Large areas with gold potential still remain under-explored.

In addition, the province has deposits of copper, zinc, nickel, rare earth minerals and platinum group metals as well as various industrial minerals including sodium sulphate and salt.
