World Sea Turtle Day

Join us in celebrating World Sea Turtle Day. Oceanic litter, fishing nets, changing ocean temperatures and the increase in tourism on the beaches where they spawn are all threats to this amazing creature. For nearly three decades our Sac-Tun operation near Playa del Carmen, Mexico has partnered with Pronatura Peninsula de Yucatan and others to support the conservation and protection of sea turtles along the northeast coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Please share!

Recycling Land

“As a land company, I think our ultimate goal is to recycle the land that we use and touch,” said Larry Lao, Project Manager for our Reliance II reclamation project near Los Angeles. We understand that mining is not a permanent use for land. After mining is complete, we reclaim the property for a variety of purposes, including natural restoration and economic development.
