North America’s Leading
Siderite Distributor Since 1962
Iron Carbonate for a Healthier Environment
SIDCO Minerals, Inc. is the continent’s premier iron carbonate (siderite) manufacturer. We mine our siderite from lenses of high-purity ore in East Texas, then distribute it to markets around the world. We’ve been producing and marketing our iron carbonate since 1962. On average, our clients have been ordering from us for over 30 years.
We take pride in being an environmentally-responsible mining partner when producing our flagship minerals – iron carbonate and iron oxide.
Iron carbonate is traditionally used in providing animals with an excellent source of iron nutrition. However, exciting research has demonstrated several other uses for iron carbonate. Today, our siderite is utilized in many applications. From keeping our sensitive waterways clean, to wastewater treatment, clean coal scavenging and enhancing natural gas production. All these applications improve our environment for a better world and place to live.
We Serve Diverse Needs
Traditionally, the animal feed industry has been our biggest client. In recent years, however, researchers have discovered other applications for iron carbonate. With help from some of the nation’s top researchers and scientists, we’ve discovered new applications and provided siderite for everything from environmental remediation to natural resource production. We’re always eager to find new ways to serve our clients.
