Our production of bentonite
The deposition of the ashes of underwater volcanoes in the sea water twenty million years ago led to the formation of clay mined in large quantities in the Guria region. It was bentonite clay, which was later called Ascanian bentonite clay in its geographical location. A new stage in the extraction of bentonite began in 2011, connected with the discovery of the Vanisked and Uchkhub mines for the extraction of Askan bentonite clay. It should be noted that the local clay is considered to be the best, as its natural chemical composition exceeds the properties of its counterparts and similar material. It is also worth noting that the Vanisked and Uchkhub mines have a stock of tens of millions of tons. Since 2011, Askan bentonite clay has been exported to the European market and the demand for bentonite has been constantly growing, among others, from the post-Soviet and Western European countries.
