Nov 18 (Reuters) - Shares of North American potash miners jumped on Tuesday, after Russian rival Uralkali OAO suspended all work at a mine and evacuated workers.

Potash Corp of Saskatchewan was up more than 4 percent in morning trading in New York and Toronto, and Agrium Inc and Mosaic Co climbed nearly 4 percent and 3 percent respectively.
