2s-photoionization of magnesium is analyzed for incident energies ranging up to three times the 2s threshold (96.6 eV). The 3s shake processes amount to almost 30% of single photoionization. The shake-up cross section exceeds 14% of the single one, and the conjugate shake-up probability plays an important role in the energy range up to three times the 2s threshold. The 2s2p63s2 Auger and Coster-Kronig rates are calculated, and the 2s22p53s 1P exit is found to be favoured (80% of the total decay), giving rise to the line MgIII 231.73 Å.
