A mining company says it has found the world's biggest and best quality supply of a valuable mineral under the North York Moors National Park.


York Potash said it is pressing ahead with plans to build a mine after surveys discovered an estimated 1.3 billion tonnes of polyhalite, which is processed to make premium potash fertiliser, below the protected Yorkshire coastline.
