About ICL Boulby

Israel Chemicals Ltd ( ICL) Boulby is located at Boulby in a rural area close to the Tees Valley-North Yorkshire border between Saltburn and Whitby. Boulby Mine has been part of the ICL Group since 2002 and is situated on the heritage coast within the North York Moors National Park. Since 1973, Boulby Mine has been successfully supplying customers around the world with Potash (KCI) products, mined and refined on site, and Salt (Na/CL). In 2012 Boulby became the first mine in the world to mine polyhalite, a fertilizer carrying the benefits of sulphur, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Mining techniques, production and markets are developing to position this mineral, sold only by ICL as polysulphate, as a key player in the fertilizer market. With economic potash mining coming to an end in 2017 ICL Boulby now concentrates its mining efforts solely on polyhalite.
