Current losses of Belaruskaliy even more tremendous than in 1992
All the four mines of the Saligorsk company Belaruskaliy are at a standstill. Mine #4 is out of question now, although the management of the company expects the work of mine administrations # 1, 2 and 3 will recommence. The current situation on Belaruskaliy is horrible, for the production process, as well as for the employees, - legal expert of Independent Trade Union of miners Aliaksandr Karaliou told the Salidarnasts. - During all the time that the company operates (even in 1992, during the 44-day strike of the miners) the production hasnt experienced such losses. Price discords hinder export contracts of the Belarusian Potassium Company Ltd. with its major buyer, China, in particular. The BPC managers insist on higher prices - up to $240-245 per ton of mineral fertilizers, which is $40 higher than the price of the year 2005. China is haggling. Belaruskaliy is at a standstill.
