Great Salt Lake (where this is sourced) has one of the highest levels of mercury of any body of water in the world !

And they do Not do any purification for this product, it is a simply concentration, so you get concentrated Mercury and other heavy metals if you consume this brand of Trace Minerals

Trace Minerals Truth Revealed part 1

Trace Minerals Truth Revealed part 2

So FAR, the best Ionic Trace Mineral concentrate that I was able to find is "Pure Planet, Ionic Elements, 4 fl oz (120 ml)" , it even has a humic and fulvic acid base, but it is Extremely Expensive !
( I am in the process of requesting their purity and quality control for this product, alongside a COA (Certificate of Analysis))

I will post it here as soon as I receive more information ! :)

Could somebody please recommend a similar product of confirmed purity and make-up but at a more reasonable price ?

Thank you very much for all the help

PS. "Marine Biotherapies" brand uses same extract sources from UTAH Great Lake....

"Possible Risks
Of course, this is not to imply that these supplements are safe for human consumption. The ingestion of unnecessary amounts of all trace elements should be avoided because many are not easily excreted and all can exhibit toxic effects when consumed in large quantity or for an extended period of time [3,34]. More important, however, colloidal mineral promoters seem oblivious to the fact that their products may contain hazardous organic compounds. For example, a daily dose of Doc's Mineral Rocks contains 7.2 mg of unidentified total organic carbon [20]. It is well established that groundwater can leach toxic organic compounds from sedimentary deposits such as coal, shale, and lignite. In many locations, specific geochemical conditions have led to the leaching of toxic organic compounds into potable water supplies with resulting disease. For example:
Links between endemic goiter and the contamination of iodine-sufficient drinking waters with sulfurated hydrocarbons leached from coal and shale deposits in Colombia and the United States [35-37].
Studies of elevated radon levels in Texas drinking waters have implicated lignites and other hydrocarbon accumulations as the suspected radionuclide sinks [38].
Suspected links between the kerogen-rich White Speckled Shale in Saskatchewan (Canada) and patterns of Multiple Sclerosis distribution [39,40].
Suspected links between weathered low-rank coals and shales and the occurrence of an incurable renal disease known as Balkan Endemic Nephropathy [41,42].
Hypothesized complicity of North/South Dakota lignites and Alaska/Maine/Minnesota peats with those state's high incidences of urothelial cancer [41].
Correlations between digestive cancer mortality rates in Missouri and the consumption of drinking water from coal and shale-bearing strata [43].

Colloidal mineral extracts have a distinctive yellow tint, indicating the presence of dissolved organic matter. At least one manufacturer, the Rockland Corporation, prides itself on its product's dark gold color. Although the concentrations of hazardous organic compounds may be low, long-term exposure and/or accumulation in body tissues might eventually lead to disease. Suspected and proven carcinogens such as PAHs, aromatic amines, and aminophenols result from the partial coalification of aromatic substances in woody plant tissues [41,44,45]. Such compounds can trigger gene and/or chromosomal mutations and altered gene expression, both of which are significant factors in the development of cancer. PAHs also exhibit the ability to modulate signal transduction among cells, which can have serious negative health consequences [46]. In addition to carcinogenicity, shale extracts possess low-order estrogenic properties. Many organic compounds can also contribute to the unwanted activation of the immune system. Since diseases can be caused by multiple factors, adverse long-term effects of colloidal mineral products may not be readily identifiable. Ironically, while the tonics themselves are unregulated, surface water runoff from the mining operations is routinely remediated because of its threat to plant and animal life.
Ten of thousands of Americans are currently serving as unwitting subjects in an undocumented test of their safety. Some scientists are especially concerned about the widespread administration of these products to children. Unfortunately, since colloidal minerals are classified as dietary supplements, no safety or efficacy testing was required before they were marketed. Action to prohibit their sale can only be taken if it is demonstrated that the products are adulterated (i.e., toxic), misbranded, or that specific medical treatment claims have been made for them. The first colloidal mineral supplement sold commercially, which Rockland Corporation introduced in 1984, was banned because of its toxicity [47]. Called "Body Toddy," it was reformulated, renamed "Mineral Toddy," and currently is marketed as "Body Booster."

Reliance on dubious supplements and unfounded health-care opinions delay people from seeking timely medical treatment. They are also a waste of money. The average recommended dosage of most colloidal minerals costs approximately $360 per person per year. Finally, the widespread quackery associated with colloidal minerals undoubtedly deters professionals from examining the subject simply because of the stigma attached to it. There is always the potential that such research might have generated useful information.
According to the most recent figures available, mining is Emery County's largest industry, contributing one third of its earnings [48]. Judging from the recent large-scale expansion of mining and processing facilities [16], as well as the statistics of gross sales in the past few years, it appears that colloidal mineral supplements are currently a healthy cash cow. Soaring Eagle Ventures is reportedly grossing $3 million per month; New Vision claims to have monthly sales 2-3 times that amount [3]. The products are advertised as a sure track to financial success on hundreds of Internet sites. The sale pitch is always the same: become an independent distributor, work part-time, and earn lots of extra money. New sites seem to pop up overnight like mushrooms, while new applications (colloidal minerals for your pets and garden!) offer more profits. A 16-ounce bottle of leachate purchased directly at the plant in Emery for $12 can net a $20 return in Salt Lake City and upwards of $30+ on the Internet [1,16]. All of this despite an unproven product, potential health risks, false advertising claims and a plague of recent scandals (lawsuits, accusations of watered-down tonics, etc.) [10].
Some colloidal mineral distributors have broadened the scope of their activities. One industrious individual has already begun promoting the latest purported "health breakthrough" of the century. WaterOz ionic mineral tonics (produced by a "very technical, revolutionary new process") will replace colloidal minerals which are as ineffective as "normal" mineral supplements. And so the Ship of Fools prepares to sail out from port once again. . . ."

Some interesting information there. There could be very many unpleasant chemicals created in shales. Coal tar painted directly onto skin caused cancer very reliably in animals. So many chemicals can be created, also naturally present chlorine and fluorine will under heat or hydrothermal processes tend to rearrange itself as we know even in the cooking process chloride salts can break down and combine with lipids to make carcinogens. One would tend to expect that the effect at relatively low levels would be largely based on compounds that are very hard to metabolise and break down and would tend to be bio-accumulative.
