Mining
We extract our raw material from 3 open cut mines in north-west Tasmania.
Operations are planned based on pre-mining chemical analysis of the in-situ silica, and forecast product demand.
The target block is checked throughout the mining operation for subtle quality variations.
The raw material is won by excavator and stored prior to screening and analysis.
Lump material is screened out for later crushing.
Screened raw material is analysed and stored prior to trucking to the factory for beneficiation.
