Mining Operations

Mining cannot commence until approval from the traditional owners, environmental license obtained from the Queensland Government, flora and fauna survey and a drilling survey of dunes completed.

The vegetation and a 300mm layer of topsoil is taken first for seed removal to assist in regeneration.

Silica sand is then removed by front end loader and transported for washing by either conveyor belt or slurry line. Impurities, rocks and vegetation are removed by an extensive washing and filtering process before the graded sand can then be sent to the wharf for loading and export.
