Mineral Extraction

Linwood Mining and Minerals Corporation is a proven leader in the limestone industry. The company traces its roots back to 1944 and today ranks as one of the largest limestone mining operations in the United States. Linwood is capable of supplying customers with a complete line of calcium carbonate, lime products, and aggregates that meet their individual specifications. In addition, a limestone reserve worth several decades of production assures that Linwood will operate at high capacity levels into the 22nd century. Linwood originally operated as an open-cut limestone quarry. However, because of demand for the uniqueness and high purity of the company’s limestone and exceptionally pure calcium carbonate, mining was extended to an underground operation. As demand for Linwood’s products increased through the years, the company introduced new equipment and technology to accommodate expansion of the mines and meet customer requirements.
