Since 1992

A Strong Reputation Built on
Sustainable Practices

For Arcilla, the relationship between mining and land is an important priority. Arcilla is strongly dedicated to return the land that is leased or bought back to its original state after all mining is completed. This committed relationship with the land has always lead Arcilla to turn their minerals into great products for the industry. 

A Name that Defines

Arcilla, the Spanish word for clay, is a company that truly lives up to its name. The operation primarily mines for kaolin — a soft white clay used in the manufacturing of a number of products, including fiberglass, plastics, paper, rubber, paint, ceramics and even medicinal products.

Formed in 1992 by Ted Smith, this family owned and operated business is one of the leading mining companies for kaolin, bauxite, and other earthly minerals.

Serving industries including Proppants, Refractories, Fiberglass, Cement, Casting, and Concrete.

What We Do

Drilling and Testing

Kaolin mining starts off with testing the land for minerals.

Overburden Removal

The overburden is removed and stockpiled.

Stockpile Segregation

Stockpiles are used to segregate the different grades of materials.

Hauling & Mineral Supply

Arcilla utilizes over sixty trucks to haul raw minerals from sites across the middle GA area.

Land Management

The land is reclaimed by contouring and grading surfaces to blend with nearby land.
