Jobs for the miners
Cleveland Potash general manager Phil Baines said: “Modern mining is a complex, expensive and difficult working environment.
“So we are delighted to welcome on board the newly-recruited experienced men. It is especially gratifying that we can offer them jobs and a secure future at a time when other mines are laying off workers.”
He added: “It is important, in terms of securing our future, to ensure that we have a steady supply of properly-trained, highly-competent young people coming through into the workforce.”
The mine — which also produces 500,000 tons of salt — has announced an expansion plan securing it for 40 years.
