Kemerton Silica Sand ore is mined by dredging. This
has proved to be the most economical and
environmentally friendly option available.
The ore is pumped by the dredge to our ROM storage
area where it is stockpiled and sampled ready for
blending into our processing plant.
Front end loaders blend the ore into the processing
plant where it is washed, screened and any heavy
mineral content is removed. Emphasis is on a quality
product and a number of quality tests are carried
out during this process.
