Borax - Mineral mined in the Death Valley Region located along a 140 mile stretch of land running through southeastern California and Nevada.

20 Mule Team Borax - DEATH VALLEY DAYS

The western anthology series DEATH VALLEY DAYS/SYN/1952-75 was sponsored by the 20-Mule Team Borax, a product of the US Borax company whose commercial logo featured a team of twenty mules pulling mine wagons filled with borax across the hot desert sand of Death Valley.

Borax is derived from boron ore that is extracted from open mine pits (by blasting) and later dissolved, crystallized, separated and dried so that the final borate product can be used for manufacturing ceramics, glassware and detergents (Boraxo).
