Western Magnesium Selects Ohio Site for New Plant

Western Magnesium Corp of New York, NY has announced the completion of an agreement with Harrison County, OH for the location of the company’s first full-scale deployment of its proprietary magnesium extraction technology in the United States. The 122-acre property is adjacent to the future home of a modern mixed fuels power plant and close to a dolomite supply and an infrastructure of rail and roads.

Sam Ataya, Western Magnesium’s CEO, said, “It’s been a lengthy process for management to find the best opportunity for our first commercial plant. This process was made easier by the hard work and support from JobsOhio and the local authorities and the people from Harrison County who have graciously opened their county to our company.”

Western Magnesium intends to start with the build out of a 100,000 tonnes/year plant. The company plans to break ground for the new plant in the next eighteen months.
