Potash mine claim dismissed
9:18am Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in News
EXPERTS have dismissed claims by a campaigner that a potash mine which could be built on the edge of the North York Moors may be unsafe.
Tom Chadwick, chairman of the North York Moors Association (NYMA), had posted a statement on the group’s website, saying problems had been identified around the “provision for emergency winding gear at the site” and talks had been held with the Inspectorate about this.
A representative of the Mines Inspectorate said none of its inspectors had raised concerns over the safety of York Potash’s plans for a minehead shaft on the Moors, near Whitby.
