The Cricket Mountain Plant is one of the largest, most modern and efficient lime plants in the Western US. High quality limestone and dolomite are quarried in the Cricket Mountains, six and one half miles west of the plant. The perfect location of ore, rail spur, and highway access allows Cricket Mountain to effectively compete in the US market as well as the Canadian market.
The limestone is crushed and sized at the Quarry and delivered by truck to the plant where five modern coal fired kilns produce a wide variety of lime products which include bulk high calcium and dolomitic quicklime, and crushed and pulverized limestone. The plant has blending facilities capable of producing precise blends for a number of applications, including use by the steel industry. Storage and shipping facilities are designed to provide a reliable source of supply to both truck and rail serviced customers.
