(AP) — An Ozark Mahoning Mining Co. official said today there was no prospect for quick settlement of a strike that has halted more than 90 per cent of the fluorspar production in this country. Members of the Machinists Union went on strike against Ozark Mahoning Saturday and against Minerva Oil Co. Monday. About 350 employes are involved in the walkout, which began with the expiration of contracts. W.W. Fowler, vice president and general manager of Ozark Mahoning's mining division, said the company and the union appear to be far apart on wages pension benefits, the union shop and other issues. Fowler said no talks arc scheduled. Fluorspar, a crystalline mirv eral varying in hue from colorless to all shades of purple, is used as flux in steelmaking and in the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid. Fowler said about 75 per cent of the fluorspar used in this country is imported and his firm Recounts f or about 60 p;;r cent of the domestic nrodurtior. Minerva accounts fcr about 30 per cent. Gil; Montgomery, vice president and general manager of Minerva's operations, said the strike amounts to shutting down an industry. He said the industry offer was the best ever made. "I'd say its better than twice any previous offer," he said. Montgomery said the proposal was rejected and the union countered with a demand for wage and fringe increases that amount to nearly a 36 per cent pay increase. Union officials were not immediately available for comment. Fowler and Montgomery said the economy of Hardin County, in extreme southeastern Illinois is closely tiftd to fluorspar mining. "Agriculturally, the area is a bunch of eroded hills," Montgomery said.
