Crystal Peak Minerals Inc. is preparing to construct a new specialty fertilizer project on the Sevier Playa in Millard County, Utah.
We are focused on delivering plant nutrition in a safe, responsible, and environmentally conscious way.
In the 1970s, a Utah geologist began the first known systematic study of the minerals found on the Sevier Playa, a terminal basin located in southwestern Utah. After years of study, he and his team determined that the playa held a vast pool of valuable brine.
Building on that work, in 2008 our team set out to consolidate the land package necessary to define the project. Today, Crystal Peak controls, either directly or through agreement, mineral leases on more than 124,000 acres of land on the playa, and is actively working to develop a potash project there.
With a brine resource known to contain potassium, magnesium, sulfate, and other beneficial minerals, Crystal Peak is targeting the production of potassium sulfate and other specialty minerals through the use of brine extraction and a cost-effective solar evaporation process.
