For one week each year, a group of students from the University of Utah’s Department of Mining Engineering embark on a journey to Death Valley. With experts from U.S. Borax as their guides, they tap into the area’s rich history of mining and gain real-world experience along the way.

U.S. Borax, part of Rio Tinto, is a global leader in the supply and science of borates—naturally-occurring minerals containing boron and other elements. We are 1,000 people serving 650 customers with more than 1,800 delivery locations globally. We supply around 30% of the world’s need for refined borates from our world-class mine in Boron, California, about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles.  Learn more about Rio Tinto.
