Thank you to each of you who took the time to contact the Bureau of Land Management and let them know what Itafos Conda means to you, our community and our state. Our first public comment period just ended and we are overwhelmed with the amount of support you showed us. This is the first of three comment periods, so we will be reaching out again once more details become available to us. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at


The Husky 1/North Dry Ridge (H1/NDR) Project :

  • The site has enough ore to allow us to continue our responsible mining, providing jobs and being an economic boost to the state.
  • Timely permitting of H1/NDR, fueled by your supportive letters, would allow Itafos Conda to continue to provide significant benefits to the social structure and economics of our community.
  • We will minimize environmental impact through:
    • Re-establishing waterways
    • Reclaiming all areas practical (93.4%)
    • Utilizing existing facilities and previously mined areas
    • Implementing stormwater controls
    • Using natural cap and cover
    • Managing phosphoria formation overburden


Good for the economy :

  • Our 500 workers make up more than 15% of the Caribou County workforce
  • We make an annual estimated $367 Million economic impact in Idaho
  • Miners and support teams are among the highest-paid industrial or service employees in Idaho, and in competing states
  • We locally produce products that serve the local and regional agriculture industry

Good for the community :

  • We donate approximately $100 thousand per year to local educational institutions, youth activity groups, senior citizens, healthcare groups, agriculture, and various community projects and sponsorships
  • We are a part of the fabric of the community, as we hire locally and draw Idahoans back to the Gem State
  • Itafos Conda is one of the few OSHA Star facilities in the entire state, meaning we have exemplary worksites with comprehensive, successful safety and health management systems
