With occurrences in the province of 23 of the 31 critical minerals on Canada’s list, Saskatchewan has an opportunity to contribute to meeting the global critical mineral demand for potash, uranium, helium, lithium, copper, zinc, cobalt, nickel and rare earth elements.
While Saskatchewan has long been a top global producer and exporter of potash and uranium, the province is now home to a flourishing helium sector and to the first-of-its-kind minerals-to-metals rare earth processing facility in North America.
