More About Us
Teague Mineral Products is a wholly owned family business started in 1971. It was the brainchild of Glen Teague who discovered large, previously unknown deposits of sodium Bentonite and Clinoptilolite Zeolite, which they mine today in Eastern Oregon and Western Idaho. Since that beginning, Glen and family, through hard work and dedication to the principal of never giving up on the dream, now have a company which has been successfully operating for nearly 50 years in their corner of Oregon.
Teague Mineral Products has specialized in producing premium sealant grade sodium bentonite for a variety of projects requiring impermeable barriers since 1971. They relocated to expand their mill facility to two miles south of Adrian OR. In 1982 they installed a 5057 Raymond mill which allowed TMP to produce bentonite for larger projects. In 1985, TMP drilled and developed another bentonite deposit which offered superior performance as a soil sealant without chemical or polymer additives and resists ionic solutions.
TMP began producing Clinoptilolite zeolite in 1975 and currently mines two distinctly different deposits, XY and CH. Though a relatively small company, it is one of the leading producers of natural Zeolite in North America. They provide “clino” for a wide variety of applications such as anticaking agent, cat litter, chemical carriers and odor control uses. TMP also produces zeolite feed supplements for chickens, cows and other animals. Environmental applications include heavy metal/radionuclide sorption and hazardous waste solidification/stabilization. Environmental applications overlap with agricultural applications when used as a soil amendment for reduction of fertilizer use and consequent reduction of non-point pollution from agricultural lands.
OREGON WELL SAND
EXCELLENT GRAVEL PACK
Oregon Well Sand's strong particles consist of smooth, round and spherical grains. Their unique natural shape and closely uniform sizing create a sand filter in the annular space, which will not pack. This will keep sandy formations in the well bottom from caving in and screens working at an optimum level.
Other Sands, such as Common River or Crushed Sand, should never be used in a gravel pack. Their sharp angular edges, and wide size range pack together. This will slow down the water flow and porosity required for good production from the well. These sands have not been tested for this use.
WHY USE OUR SAND?
Oregon Well Sand is specifically sized and tested so the well will have maximum production and sanitation. Oregon Well Sand passes API and AWWA specifications for gravel pack material. Oregon Well Sand is certified to NSF/ANSI 61 standard for water well gravel pack.
