In 1973, the first potash was extracted from the mine, and structured production and supplying has been ongoing ever since. Since that time, Boulby Mine has been successfully supplying customers around the world with potash products, 
mined and refined on site. In addition to potash, Boulby mine is responsible for supplying around half of the de-icing rock salt used on the UK road system during the winter. Recently, ICL UK became the first mine in the world to mine 
polyhalite, a fertilizer carrying the benefits of sulphur, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Sold only by ICL as Polysulphate, this 4-in-1 mineral has become a key player in the fertilizer market.
