The Perlite Mine


We are a Perlite Mine Located in Big Pine California. Our Mine started out millions of of years ago when Volcanoes emitted the material that later formed the volcanic Rock Perlite.






We mine and crush the raw rock for sale and distribution to Expanders who transform the ore into:

Expanded Perlite.

Our mining operations use the latest environment friendly and energy efficient vehicles tools and processes.


We are committed to preserving the environment and use the most modern and effective land restoration techniques.
