About ACT

ACT is on a mission to restore essential minerals and nutrients to the soils that desperately need them. With remineralized soils, we can continue to nourish the earth’s plants, animals and humans.

All ACTpure products are sourced from the organic rare-earth essentials at the site of an ancient, freshwater lakebed located in Northern Nevada, U.S.A. Millions of years ago, this ancient lake was home to hundreds of creatures, including gastropods. These gastropods could only come to be under the purest of circumstances, and the unique mineral make-up of their fossils reflects that. These trace minerals are beneficial to all life, and we are excited to make them available to you for all your agriculture, farming and gardening needs.

Our products are ground to meet the needs of a variety of applications, including agriculture, gardening, landscaping, house plant care, and hydroponics.

Official lab reports prove effectiveness of gastropod mineral “rock dust”

ACTpro is ground to < 3/8th-inch to provide a slower-release of essential rare-earth nutrients. ACTpro bolsters the nutrition and resilience of soils, which in turn benefits the life that depends on them—the life of microbes, plants, animals and humans.

Advanced Carbonate Technologies (ACT) is formed

Early 20th Century – Sacramento basin population booms, agriculture increases. Farmers send for trace minerals from the ancient lakebed to remineralize their soil.

    Lake Lahontan dries up

    Lake Lahontan, home to the gastropods, stretched 8,600 miles in Northwestern Nevada. At the end of the Ice Age, the ice sheets receded and the lake dried up.

      The Ancient Freshwater Inland Sea was thriving

      Lake Lahontan once stretched across 8,610 miles and reached depths of up to 500 ft, which is why we call it an inland sea. Lake Lahontan was once home to a diverse range of species, including the Ichthyosaurus and the gastropods.
