Solution mining is a more energy intensive process than conventional mining. Comparing 11 potash mines in Saskatchewan, solution mining’s average energy consumption was about 1300kWh/tonne and conventional mining’s was close to 400kWh/tonne. Natural gas represents the largest source of energy type for the Canadian potash

Conventional mining involves extracting a lot of rock material to access the mineral resource resulting in large underground caverns and this excess waste material must also be stored on surface. With solution mining, a brine is heated and injected into the deposit to dissolves the potash.

Potash Wikipedia

All commercial potash deposits come originally from evaporite deposits and are often buried deep below the earth's surface. Potash ores are typically rich in potassium chloride (KCl), sodium chloride (NaCl) and other salts and clays, and are typically obtained by conventional shaft mining with the extracted ore ground into a powder. Other methods include dissolution mining and evaporation methods from brines. In the evaporation method, hot water is injected into the potash which is dissolved and then pumped to

ITP Mining: Energy and Environmental Profile of the U.S

Solution Mining When conventional underground mines become flooded and unworkable, potash can be extracted using solution mining. Water is injected as a brine or salt and water solution. It is then circulated throughout the mine workings to dissolve potash and salt from the original pillars and walls. The brine is pumped to an evaporation pond.
