Company Terra Aurum LLC is the European distributor of Mineral Logic LLC, the US company who owns one of the few known plant-matter and mineral deposits of its type in the United States. This shale deposit, created during the Lower Oligocene epoch is unique, since it’s protected by a layer of iron ore and contains a rich vein of bioactive fulvic acid and trace minerals.
The mature BioActive fulvic acid products sold by by Terra Aurum Ltd are certifiably different from competing products, which may use a peat or sugar fermentation process to create first generation fulvic acid or which may be from a coal derivative. First generation products do not contain the same levels of the naturally-occurring complex of constituents that we harvest.
When viewed under a microscope, shale mined from our deposit shows distinct crystal formations. The crystals of acid-alkaline compounds were formed 23 to 34 million years ago* from the combination of freshwater and oceanic life that covered the area. Enormous prehistoric plants grew with roots that reached deep into the earth to take up an abundance of minerals chelated by fulvic acids. The earth was rich with microbial activity, creating mature fulvic acid molecules that are too complex to be synthesized by commercial chemical processes.
* The Lower Oligocene is a geologic epoch of the Paleogene Period and extends from about 33.9 million to 23 million years before the present. The Rupelian is the older of two ages or the lower of two stages of the Oligocene epoch/series
