“While we are encouraged by this latest development, litigation is ongoing, and we will need a favorable resolution of our larger appeal in order to permanently resume mining activities at South Fort Mead,” said Bo Davis, Mosaic’s vice president of Phosphate Operations.

The month-long timeline of resuming operations on December 1 will ensure South Fort Meade is brought back online without disrupting production at other facilities.
