Nevada Zinc is planning on becoming a Nevada-based producer of zinc sulfate. We are currently conducting a multiphase pilot plant program on the potential commercial production of zinc sulfate monohydrate product (See our press release "Nevada Zinc Commences a Multiphase Pilot Plant Program to Produce Zinc Sulfate"
March 9, 2021).
Zinc is an essential nutrient to all plants. Certain crops require more zinc than the others and have the highest yield and economic response to zinc.
Increasing consumer preference for ‘healthy foods’ bolster demand for specialty crops category and biofortified food.
Dairy and beef cattle, pork, chicken, turkey, and other farm animals require several minerals for optimal growth and reproduction including zinc.
Zinc provides essential activities for the health of the soil. It is a key driver of germination and root development and forms a symbiotic relationships with mycorrhizal fungi in soils. Essential nutrient for growth hormone production and synthesis of nucleic acids and enzyme activity. It aids in the formation of chlorophyll, affects the uptake and use of water, and influences the rate of seed and stalk maturation in plans.
Our product will be produced from naturally occurring carbonate zinc oxide mineralization from our site in Nevada, USA.
We will be planning on pursuing Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) certification for our products.
