Microscopic view of a single diatom,diatomaceous earth (DE)
Millions of years ago, Nevada was covered by water. In those lakes, microscopic single-celled plants called diatoms, thrived. When they died, they left behind huge deposits of the fresh-water diatomaceous earth (DE). EP Minerals has mined this high-quality DE in Nevada for over 70 years, used around the world in hundreds of products and applications.
