Potash was first discovered in the Paradox Basin in an oil and gas well in 1924. In 1962, Superior Oil Company drilled the first potash at the crest of the Lisbon Valley anticline. Since 1964, potash and by product salt have been produced from the Cane Creek mine. The Cane Creek mine was first owned and operated by Texas Gulf Sulphur, and is now owned and operated by Intrepid Potash Company. Potash was originally produced by underground mining and, in 1970, the mine was converted to solution mining. Solution mining has proven to be the ideal process in the project area because of the hot summers and low humidity. The mine has produced nearly continuously since 1964, and reportedly has a future mine life of 30 years.
