Last week, Sirius Minerals (TIDM:SXX), a £254m Aim-traded miner, caused a stir when it released an outline plan for a proposed $6bn (£3.7bn) phased development of its York Potash Project in Whitby, North Yorkshire (see Sirius makes progress). The scale of the proposed investment dwarfs any mining project on the UK mainland in recent years, and should hopefully provide a much needed stimulus to the local economy. Above all,though, it reflects long-term confidence in the market fundamentals governing the global fertiliser industry.
