Is the Sirius Minerals share price on track to hit 60p this year? When I covered Sirius Minerals (LSE: SXX) at the beginning of 2018 year, I claimed that the stock could surge to 40p by the end of 2018 (up from 23p at the time) as the company progressed on its journey to become one of the world’s biggest suppliers of polyhalite.
