Located within the Mojave desert, our hectorite clay mine hosts a protected species—the Desert Tortoise. To support and protect biodiversity in the area, special fences have been erected to keep the tortoises away from our operations at the mine. We have a certified biologist on call to remove tortoises that make their way behind the fencing. If they happen to stray, they are immediately and safely returned to their own habitat.
