BEREZNIKI, Russia Nov 24 (Reuters) - Uralkali, the world's biggest potash producer, is preparing to restart operations at half its Solikamsk-2 mine, where work was halted last week after an accident, its chief executive said on Monday.

The governor of the Perm region where Solikamsk-2 is located also said the inflow of water at the mine had "practically stopped" and there was no danger to residents of the area, where a large sinkhole has formed.
