Mr. David Urnes Johnson
Western Sahara Resource Watch

Dear Mr. Johnson:
Thank you for the letter you sent in October expressing concern regarding Mosaic's shipment of phosphate rock from the Moroccco and Western Sahara regions. I appreciate your outlining the concerns of the Florida section of the Western Sahara Resource Watch.

I want to assure you that we are currently investigating this issue. While we believe our shipments of phosphate rock are in full compliance with international law, we recognize the issues you raise. We are assessing our current production needs and will determine in 2009 whether we purchase any additional rock from the Western Sahara region.

Thank you again for expressing your concerns.


James T. Prokopanko
President and Chief Executive Officer.
