Anglo Secures Future for Woodsmith Polyhalite Project
“Today marks a new chapter for the Woodsmith Project, the employees of the business and everyone who has an interest in its future,” Anglo American CEO Mark Cutifani said. “This is a project with clear potential as a Tier 1 supplier of premium quality, low carbon fertilizer to help meet food demand for a fast-growing global population.”
The mining operation has been designed to have minimal physical impact on its surroundings and progressing its development, he added. “We recognize the role the project will continue to play in its local communities and, as promised, I am pleased to confirm that we are today transferring £1 million into the project’s charitable foundation,” Cutifani said. He added that the company will contribute even more over the next three years.
