Location map
At Veendam, in north-east Netherlands, Nedmag BV operates a unique magnesia operation. Magnesia is sourced by solution mining the magnesium chloride salt deposits of bischofite and carnallite hosted by the Zechstein basin some 2km below the North Sea.

The mineral-rich salt deposit was discovered in 1979, and magnesia production commenced in 1981.

From this rich source, Nedmag produces a suite of products including dead burned magnesia (DBM), caustic calcined magnesia (CCM), magnesium chloride, magnesium hydroxide, and calcium chloride. Production capacity in 2018 was 175,000 tpa DBM and 80,000 MgCl2.

In early 2016, the company approved a €122m investment programme for 2016-2025 to develop new processes, products, and start a new salt extraction site (location development in 2020; drilling and development wells in 2022).
