The devastation of people’s lives, homes and properties in the U.S. and the Caribbean in recent weeks has caused unprecedented hardship for U.S. citizens.

Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/11/2017 -- The devastation of people's lives, homes and properties in the U.S. and the Caribbean in recent weeks has caused unprecedented hardship for U.S. citizens. It is estimated that 4 million family homes were affected with some level of damage and over 350,000 homes will need to be completely rebuilt.
One of the biggest limitations with FEMA and other organizations' ability to rebuild is the availability of high-grade gypsum (selenite or calcium sulfate) used in wallboard. The Company owns one of the largest supplies of high-grade gypsum in the world and stands ready to help this immense restoration process. Highly-pure gypsum has become increasingly scarce due to its increased use in agriculture.
As important as gypsum is to Denver-based Good Earth Minerals' agricultural market, the Company is prepared to support the rebuild process. Therefore, effective immediately, Good Earth Minerals has instructed its subsidiary, EcoGEM, to divert a substantial portion of its gypsum from its agricultural market to the wallboard suppliers.
Don Bryant, EcoGEM's Senior Advisor, stated, "Good Earth Minerals and EcoGEM are dedicated to working collaboratively to help improve the quality of life of those affected by these storms by providing the building industry with high-quality, toxin-free gypsum for its building supplies."
