From Woodsmith to the World: The Story of Sirius Minerals’ Polyhalite Project

We are pleased to be hosting this new exhibition which takes visitors through the geological and mining history of the area, and describes how the new mine will be built and function, before detailing the role the company’s polyhalite fertilizer will play in helping farmers around the world increase crop yields to feed a growing global population.  The exhibition also covers the community work the company is doing in the local area and their collaboration on environmental projects with the North York Moors National Park Authority.

The exhibition complements the extensive and world class geological exhibits that we have in our permanent collection & will run until the end of May.
