The Winnipeg Free Press reported that the provincial government has extended the deadline for companies to provide an initial expression of interest in the Russell-McAuley potash deposit.

As quoted in the market news:

In 2014, Manitoba amalgamated 2,247 square kilometres worth of potash deposits — previously held by several interests — near the town of Russell. An expression-of-interest document for what’s officially known as the Russell-McAuley potash deposit was issued in January, with a closing date of March 13. The province extended the deadline another two weeks at the behest of unnamed entities, said Gabrielle Giroday, a spokeswoman for Manitoba Mineral Resources.

Slightly more than one billion tonnes of potash are estimated to lie 800 metres to one kilometre below ground in the Russell-McAuley deposit, which the province claims is comparable in quality and mining conditions to similar deposits across the Saskatchewan border, where Agrium, Mosaic and Potash Corp. operate mines.
