OGDEN, UTAH, July 26, 2010 — Trace Minerals Research (TMR) announces it will be opening a new harvesting facility located near the Great Salt Lake after four years of preparation. The new facility is more modern, more secure, and uses solar energy to power many of its manufacturing operations as well. The new facility is owned by a sister company of TMR and has all approved licenses from the state of Utah to harvest minerals from the Great Salt Lake.
“We have been working diligently on this new facility since 2006,” said Matt Kilts, Managing Partner of TMR. “The purpose of building this new, modernized, green facility was to have more security and control over our mineral harvest to ultimately provide our customers with the highest quality product.”
The new facility is located on the north side of the Great Salt Lake and is surrounded by thousands of acres of private property and is protected by 24-hour surveillance. In addition to heightened security and green energy improvements, the new facility was designed to allow for a faster innovative evaporation process that decreases the time the minerals are exposed to the environment. This process, along with a deeper extraction point for harvesting minerals, provides a more concentrated mineral complex and proves TMR’s commitment to producing the highest quality product possible. To build the specialized facility to the highest quality standards, TMR hired a contractor who has extensive experience in building unique environmental retention ponds.
TMR will be hosting an open house for invited guests at its new facility on August 31, 2010.
