Idaho company intends to enter design/build market

By | April 01, 2002
Iron Mask Mining Company recently announced its interest to design, build and operate an ethanol facility in southern Idaho.

Dr. Dennis D. Keiser, president and CEO of the company, announced that feasibility studies for the plant have been nearly completed and that several locations are now under consideration, with a decision on the location to be forthcoming.

Iron Mask Mining Company, soon to be renamed Intrepid Technology and Resources, Incorporated, is currently in discussions with several partner companies on forming a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) for the purpose of financing, owning and operating the plant. According to the company, Idaho and Montana could provide upwards of 25 percent of this Western demand (500 million gallons per year), equating to approximately ten plants in the two states. The company reportedly intends to position itself to provide a significant portion of that 25 percent.
