Searles Valley Minerals processes brine solutions from Searles Lake to produce boric acid, sodium carbonate, sodium sulfate, several speciality forms of borax, and salt.

Unlike other mining techniques such as open pit mining, the three facilities in Searles Valley use a unique, ecologically friendly process that starts with solution mining.
