Brazil Potash is a mineral exploration and development company with a potash mining project located in the state of Amazonas. Although Brazil Potash is in the pre-revenue development stage and has not yet commenced any mining operations, its future operating activities, once commenced, will be focused on the extraction and processing of potash ore from its underground mine and selling and distributing the processed potash in Brazil.
Potash is one of the three main nutrients used to grow food. Its primary role is to strengthen the stem of a plant to make it more robust to drought, temperature swings, and insect bites all of which are becoming more prevalent.
Brazil Potash aims to become a significant domestic source of potash fertilizer in Brazil to alleviate Brazil’s dependence on imported potash and farmer supply-chain risk while supporting economic prosperity and agricultural sustainability in Brazil and food security globally.
The process of creating this fertilizer begins with the extraction of potassium ore from deep underground. The ore is then transported to the surface for processing and when complete, it’s applied by farmers to grow food completing the cycle from the earth back to earth. Using this process, once it has obtained all regulatory approvals, Brazil Potash anticipates providing high-quality fertilizer to Brazilian farmers who supply essential food worldwide creating food security, which is a step towards solving the second UN Sustainable Development Goal.
To further finance its pre-operation activities, Brazil Potash raised $40 million via Equity Crowdfunding pursuant to an offering under Tier 2 of Regulation A.
Self-hosting the capital raise on DealMaker was one of the key elements to making this raise possible, with over thousands of investors in multiple jurisdictions.
Brazil is one of the world's leading producers of agricultural goods. Consequently, Brazil is a key market for potash producers, since, in order to increase the volume and value of crop yields, frequent and balanced replenishment of nutrients in the soil is needed. Potash is integral to Brazil’s economic success since Brazil generates approximately 27% of its gross domestic product from the agricultural sector.
However, Brazil is heavily reliant on imported potash and imports approximately 95% of its potash needs. Brazil Potash believes that Brazil’s government recognizes that reliance on imported potash is not a tenable long-term solution and that Brazil needs to find ways to increase its domestic production of potassium-bearing fertilizers (Potash).
Brazil Potash had to find a capital-raising solution that would allow them to raise a significant sum to advance the project. DealMaker was the capital-raising platform of choice to kick off this large-scale food security project. Our technology and expertise were instrumental in assisting Brazil Potash to secure the financing they needed.
