WINNIPEG, Manitoba, March 14 (Reuters) - India's Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd has agreed to finance the first phase of Karnalyte Resources Inc's Canadian potash mine for $700 million, Karnalyte said on Monday.

The companies also agreed to spin out Karnalyte's secondary mineral assets and unexplored lands, Karnalyte said.
