Happy Make A Dog's Day! Here at EP Minerals, a U.S. Silica company, we are big animal lovers, and many of us own dogs, (but also cats, horses and a myriad of other pets,) and consider them part of the family. We’re sure you probably do, too! And we want to keep them as happy and healthy as possible. That means keeping them bug-free.

"Make the customer your primary agenda." It's our mantra every day, not just today on Get To Know Your Customers Day. To a person, we have a passion for putting the customer first. Every day.

We're different in how we treat our customers, different in how we work with each other, and different in what we do and how we do it. Apparently, our customers think we’re different, too. But in a very good way.

For years, EP Minerals, a U.S. Silica company, has hosted the annual Nevada Mining Association's teachers workshop, touring our Clark plant and mine. This past year, 55 Northern Nevada teachers got the incredible experience of touring our plant, a historical lecture on diatomaceous earth (DE), and a mine tour, where they got to take as many DE rocks as they could carry with them to share with their students. It's always a fun group and the teachers are genuinely excited about taking what they learn back to their classes.

Millions of years in the making: National Diatomaceous Earth Day

Diatomaceous earth, also known as DE, is a sedimentary rock found in large deposits worldwide and mined primarily in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Peru, France, Spain, Denmark, and China. Northern Nevada has several large, high-purity deposits mined by EP Minerals, a U.S. Silica company. The DE is developed into hundreds of products used around the globe by the world's largest companies. 

The diatoms that are forming today - the single-celled plants that make up the diatomaceous earth - are truly the lungs of the earth, in that they produce about three quarters of the world’s new oxygen supply. See, DE is a really big deal!
