Agriculture, Other Great Industries
US Magnesium has a unique operation, harvesting salts on the shores of the Great Salt Lake to produce primary pure and alloy magnesium metal, as well as chlorine, calcium chloride, iron chlorides, and hydrochloric acid.

US Magnesium has the capacity to produce in excess of 50,000 metric ton per year of primary magnesium and a variety of chemical products at a facility 60 miles west of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. The operation is expansive, spanning over 80,000 acres. A vast solar evaporation system produces magnesium chloride feedstock for the magnesium production facility and contributes to the production of marketable salts. A series of feedstock holding reservoirs ensures the availability of raw materials for multiple years. A nucleus of chemical processing units concentrates and purifies the feedstock for magnesium production. An upgraded chlorine liquefaction plant and increased chlorine recovery allows for the production of liquid chlorine and numerous derivative products. The facility supports multiple fence-line customers and has both truck and rail access for global distribution of products.
