Since Harvey Haugen built his first Potassium Sulphate in 1990, he had started to study a simpler and cheaper way to supply the potassium chloride to his plant rather than purchased with an unstable high price from the local potash mine.
By year 2000, with his strong professional background in chemistry and practical experience in processing engineering, Harvey developed a number of technologies including Ammonium Sulphate brines, Diaptomus Fishery, Welding shop and Glaserite Process. Many of these technologies can be applicable to the similar mineral productions such as Magnesium and Potash.
Harvey established his second project Touchwood Resources in year 2000 and continued his study and practice in brines, process and crystallization. He eventually completed his potash solution mining technology in 2006 and then founded Beechy Potash Products Corp.
