German term or phrase: Kaliminen
I can't seem to find an exact translation for this term, however judging by the context, I reckon it means something along the lines of "potash farm".

The sentence in question is as follows:

"Das Management richtete den Fokus auf Unternehmen im Besitz attraktiver Aktiva wie z.B. Kaliminen, Plantagen, Farmen sowie Firmen mit einem einzigartigen Standort- und Logistikvorteil."

Would anyone know what the correct term is here?

All help much appreciated ;-)
