AGRIUM SHUTS DOWN ITS SASKATCHEWAN POTASH MINE
Source: Agrium news release

Agrium Inc. (TSX and NYSE: AGU) confirmed today that its Vanscoy, Saskatchewan, potash mine experienced a mechanical failure on its main hoist system. As a result, production has been shut down at this facility.

Due to the outage, Agrium will bring forward the planned turnaround to tie-in the current capacity expansion project. Production at the facility will therefore remain shut down until the tie-in is complete.

There were no injuries and we do not expect any significant impact on the workforce.

Further information regarding the outage will be provided on our second quarter conference call on August 7, 2014, at 9:30AM eastern time.
