We have the licenses of very rich mine fields in the coasts of the Black Sea, where highest quality calcium bentonite deposits are present.
Calcium bentonite has the capacity to absorb water up to 4 – 5 times its volume. They have more different characteristics compared to sodium bentonite in this respect. Its odor absorption is better than sodium bentonite. Our company has an area of about 6000 hectares in the region as white bentonite. Our proven reserves in those areas is approximately 10 million tons. We have 5 mines in various locations.
Bentonite mine is intensely white colored in our region. The major cause that it stays white is that it is free of heavy metals inside. Thus, the cat litter we produce from white bentonite, which is more natural, is the highest quality cat litter of the world.
Mustafa Güzeldal-Board of Directors Pres.
We consider it respect to the generosity of nature rather than a legal obligation in that we rehabilitate the mine that we extract as an open enterprise in compliance with the laws and make it ready again for hazelnut or forestry plantation.

The bentonite field with operating license located in Ordu province, Unye district, Inkur site covers a wide area of 3.051 hectares. Now the mines are being processed at 3 different points in the field and contain bentonite of different qualities and properties. Totally 2,5 million tons of bentonite reserves have been determined in the field heretofore through past and ongoing studies. Bentonites have properties between 65-75 for Montmorillonite and 80-90 for Whiteness. The field is at approximately 20 km distance to Ünye Port.
Bentonite Licence II
Turkey, Ordu, Ünye, Üçpınar
Our bentonite field with a license for searching within the borders of Kumru district of Ordu province covers an area of 1.875 hectares and 750.000 tons of bentonite reserves were determined in currently ongoing studies.

Turkey, Ankara, Kazan
Two diatomite mine fields with operating license and located in Kazan site, Ankara covers an area of totally 1100 hectares (700 Hectares / 400 Hectares). Totally 30 million tons of reserves are suitable for producing cat litter and semi finished and finished products are being produced from this mine with high added values for industrial inputs in various fields (Agriculture, livestock, isolation, paint industry, etc.). Whiteness level of mine to be used primarily for cat litter production is 80% and its specific bulk density is 0,500 g/L.
