Potash project thrown into chaos!
- an update by Vanda Inman on new information that casts a long shadow over the prospects for York Potash Ltd and their bid to establish a polyhalite mine in the North York National Park.
- “That’s not just a miscalculation, it’s a massive error”
Chris France (Chief Planning Officer at the NYMNPA) is showing serious doubts over York Potash’s Mine Project, according to the front page of the Whitby Gazette; http://www.whitbygazette.co.uk/
It is a shame that most of the shareholders only get their information via the internet, with a front page screaming – “New Mine would be threat to Tourism”.
Chris France, again . . .
“People might say ‘There’s two mines in that area, its just not a place I want to go anymore’” as visitors avoid congested roads and a spoil heap the size of Wembley Stadium”.
‘Miscalculations have put the future of the York Potash project at risk says planning chief . . . the impact on the National Park is much bigger than what we imagined (imagination lacking here then CF?) … if we hadn’t asked for more information we would be making a decision on things that are completely wrong now”.
Chris France goes on to say “That’s not just a miscalculation, it’s a massive error”.
On another report on the viability on the economics of marketing the Potash product, Chris France says;
- “ That throws into doubt the whole economic outlook of the project”.
. . . ouch!
And all that despite the editor of the Whitby Gazette, Ed Asquith being a personal beneficiary if the Potash project goes ahead; he is listed as one of the circa 400 Landowners and Mineral Rights holders, within the planning application documents.
