Hello: I was recently trying to sell a section of land in Texas. The realestate agent advised me that the land contains a large amount of Sodium Bentonite. I have done some internet research and it seems this is widely for a variety of applications. How difficult is it to get something like this to market. Does A&M know of anyone who mines/removes this and would be willing to sell? Thank you for your help.

Howdy, thanks for the question. This sounds interesting, but it is really out of the expertise for AgriLife Extension.
A good place for you to start might be the Travis county Department of Transportation and Natural Resources:
