BHP Billiton to Detail Proposed Potash Export Facility in Hoquiam

BHP Billiton will be hosting an open house later this month to detail a proposed potassium chloride export facility at Terminal 3, near Bowerman Airfield. The meeting begins at 5 pm Thursday, September 14th at the Hoquiam High School Commons.

Representatives will provide a presentation about their company at 5:30 pm. They’ll also have staff on hand to detail what potash (potassium chloride) is, their work at the Jansen Potash Project in Saskatchewan, Canada and what their proposed project at the Port of Grays Harbors terminal would look like in West Hoquiam.

Following the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to visit various stations and ask questions.

Port Commissioner Stan Pinnick said in the port’s August newsletter, “We commend BHP for holding this event as an opportunity for our local citizens and other interested parties to learn more about the proposed project and what it could mean for our community.”
