An active quarry for aggregate currently operated by Carmuese Lime and Stone. The quarry is located in Jackson Township, sections 7 and 8. The bedrock has been identified as the Silurian Lockport Formation (Carlson, 1991, Carlson, 2015).

During World War I, the steel industry in the United States used magnesite that was imported from Austria. Since the United States was at war with the Central Powers, it could no longer import Austrian magnesite and turned to other sources. The J.E. Baker Company, founded by John E. Baker, began producing a “dead burned dolomite” which became a substitute for magnesite. This material was then marketed as “Magdolite” (Peckham, 1945).

As the demand for “Magdolite” grew, John Baker erected a new a plant in Millersville, Ohio in 1937 to produce more. John Baker passed away in 1941, but production of “Magdolite” continued during World War II. After Baker’s death the company was reorganized.

In 1984, Steetley Resources, Inc. acquired the Millersville operation from the J.E. Baker Company (1984). The Millersville Quarry was then acquired by the Carmuese Lime and Stone Co. after Steetley Resources, Inc. (Carlson, 2015)

Lockport Dolomite

Age: Silurian (423 - 443.8 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Lockport Dolomite

Description: Dolomite, shades of white to medium gray, medium to massive bedded, fine to coarse crystalline; fossiliferous; vuggy.

Comments: Secondary unit description from USGS Lexicon website (ref. OH017) and OH005:Rock units forming the bedrock in the Maumee, Lucas Co., OH, and that crop out in the walls of a quarry are the Lockport Dolomite and the Greenfield Dolomite. The two form a thick reef complex roughly 600 m in diameter and about 68 m thick. The Lockport contains multistory stromatolite, thrombolite, and coral-microbialite reefs that were probably formed in a subtidal setting within a hypersaline lagoon. Lockport may be Wenlockian or Llandoverian to Ludlovian. In contrast to the mostly massive Lockport, the Greenfield at Maumee quarry is well bedded. It is Wenlockian, according to Shaver (1991), but fig. 16 of this report (after Howell, 1993) depicts the Greenfield as Llandoverian with a significant hiatus between deposition of the two units (Kahle, 1994).
