Canadian based PeterBurton Mineral Corp. (“PBM”) has acquired likely the single biggest undeveloped vermiculite deposit in North America and perhaps the world, and is on the verge of commercial production with mining permits in place. Our goal is to develop the vermiculite resource and become the largest supplier of vermiculite in North America and beyond.
The PBM Vermiculite™ Deposit is the first (and only) commercially-viable, contaminant (asbestos-fibre) free vermiculite operation in Canada, and has a larger area and higher grades than most of the existing vermiculite mines in the world – PBM can supply the needs of North America (and Europe) for many decades to come.
World Class Vermiculite Endowment
PBM has one of the world's largest vermiculite bearing areas with a multitude of deposits.
2015 global demand for vermiculite increased (up 7% Y-o-Y). Vermiculite is now being mined in Ontario, CANADA.
Close to major North American markets, with easy access to major road/rail and waterways!
