FMC Corporation is one of the world’s foremost, diversified chemical companies with leading positions in agricultural, industrial and consumer markets. For more than 20 years we have conducted year-round, all-weather mining at Nu-West Industries’ Dry Valley Phosphate Mine in the mountains of southeast Idaho. The contract includes virtually all aspects of production from exploratory drilling to mine reclamation. Major responsibilities include the stripping of overburden and the excavation and hauling of ore and waste.
About six miles northeast of Soda Springs, at the Conda Mill, we built the tailings impoundment and manage the mill’s expansion.
We provided engineering, procurement and contract management of the soda ash facility for FMC Corporation. Our work enabled the $120 million facility to produce 700,000 tpy of soda ash from trona, utilizing proprietary, solution mining technology.
