 PFIZER SPECIALTY MINERALS ACQUIRES CALCIUM PRODUCTS OF ARIZONA
 NEW YORK, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Pfizer Specialty Minerals, a subsidiary of Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE), announced today it has purchased the assets and limestone reserves of Calcium Products of Arizona from Sahuarita Mining Ltd. of Colorado Springs. Terms were not disclosed.
 Walter Nazarewicz, president of Pfizer Specialty Minerals, said the company would immediately launch a $3 million modernization project to upgrade the facilities as part of an intensified program for expanding limestone sales in the Southwest.
 Located some 30 miles southeast of Tucson, Calcium Products of Arizona will operate as part of Pfizer's Limestone West product complex, centered in Lucerne Valley, Calif., under Plant Manager Jim Mulkey. Lucerne Valley will provide management support in the areas of geology, engineering and personnel.
 In addition to its use in animal feed and as joint compound for the construction industry, limestone has applications in pool sand, decorative rock, cultured marble, asphalt and other markets.
 The installation of new on-site testing and quality control equipment will greatly improve product quality and uniformity, Nazarewicz said, adding that process automation will substantially increase mill capacity. Separate storage facilities will be provided for various limestone grinds intended for distinct markets.
 Pfizer Inc is a worldwide research-based company with businesses in health care, animal health, consumer products, specialty chemicals and specialty minerals. The company reported sales of approximately $6.4 billion for 1990.
