Mosaic secures final permit for Ona phosphate project

Mosaic Co. received the final permit for its Ona phosphate project in Florida's Hardee County, allowing it to mine 160.2 million tons of phosphate rock.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 404 permit allows mining over 16,778 acres of the total 22,483-acre project area, according to the Jan. 3 release.

The western extent of the project will extend the life of Mosaic's Four Corners mine by 14 years, while the eastern extent will allow future mining at the South Pasture mine once production resumes at that facility.

Mining permits from the State of Florida were issued in 2015 and local government permits were secured in July 2018, the company noted.
