Sourcing QUICKLIME in Arizona

I couple of months ago I started my search for quicklime and incredibly, my closest source was Albuquerque.

Nothing in Arizona, Nevada or Southern California.

I checked with Home Depot and the contractors’ suppliers, but nobody would special order quicklime.

I was thrilled to find the Lhoist Nelson mine just an hour outside Kingman AZ on the Hualapai rez near Peach Springs and eventually I found the plant manager Jolene on Facebook.   Incredibly, she responded to my message, and promised a call from sales.  I was so excited!  But I didn’t receive a call.  And when I sent her another FB message, I didn’t get a response.

Today I’m restarting and documenting my efforts and I’ll update here.


Apparently the closest retailer is in Petaluma, Northern California.

Searched the online store for “quicklime” and got https://www.limeworks.us/product/carmeuse-high-calcium-lime/
