Premier Industries LLC

Located in the Mill Creek TIFID, has brought together a select group of Metallurgical, Business Development and Industry Specific Specialists, to prove a proprietary process that would recover the metallic iron from the Copper Refining Slag (CRS) piled near Anaconda and convert the remaining molten glassy material into a value-added product – Glass Proppant. The processing method produces very little waste leaving virtually nothing behind.

Currently, Premier is actively doing business in or providing services for several organizations in both industries and market segments. This includes but is not limited to, major oil companies and oil field service companies related to material supply, drilling, hydraulic fracturing and environmental cleanup. The domestic production and sale of Foundry Grade Pig Iron and Glass Proppant will be well received by North American based organizations and companies.

North Western Energy’s Dave Gates Generating Station

North Western Energy (NWE) is an electric and natural gas utility that serves approximately 656,000 customers in the western two-thirds of Montana, eastern South Dakota, and central Nebraska. Stable grid operation is challenging, especially when intermittent and unpredictable renewable generation is added to the generation mix. The Dave Gates plant, located adjacent to the Mill Creek TIFID, is designed to provide regulation service to NWE’s transmission balancing authority to balance generation and load on a moment-to-moment basis, as well as provide regulation for the integration of renewables.
