Potash Projects Hold Big Potential For Corridor

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

The Real AZ Corridor is Arizona’s energy and economic development corridor. It may also turn out to be America’s potash corridor, with multiple potash market development projects at work in the Holbrook area. It is becoming apparent that the Real AZ Corridor could become one of the world’s leading, long-term producers of potash. That could mean hundreds of construction and mining jobs in the Corridor  — and not just now, but for many years to come.

Learn about Passport Potash’s Holbrook Basin project by watching this informative video HERE.

Learn about the American West Potash project, which is also located in the Holbrook Basin, through this company presentation HERE.

Potash is only one of the many resources that put the ‘R’ in the REAL AZ Corridor, where REAL stands for Resources, Energy, Access and Lifestyle.
