Kaolin Sydney Construction Materials

In comparison to other clay minerals, the kaolin from the Newnes Junction deposit has a range of unique optical, physical, and a compositional properties that makes it ideally suited for a broad selection of industrial uses. These properties are summarised below. It is expected that following further beneficiation using bacterial leaching, the already superior properties of the SCM kaolin will be significantly improved at much lower cost than other beneficiation methods.

The main industrial uses of kaolin include: The above uses of kaolin account for approximately 60% of worldwide kaolin consumption , and require a high quality product. The remainder is used in the following applications:

World production of kaolin in 2002 was an estimated 24.6 Mt with an annual growth rate of around 1.75%. Overall demand for kaolin is forecast to grow at a rate of approximately 2% pa to attain some 27.7 Mt in 2010. Kaolin is produced in over 60 countries, and in most cases, output is relatively small. Processed production only exceeds 1 Mtpa in the USA, UK, Brazil, and probably China. The majority of kaolin is consumed close to where it is produced, but there is a substantial amount shipped over large distances. Apart from supply and demand, the main factor affecting the price of kaolin is the cost of processing. The costs incorporated into SCM39;s cash flow model are based on processing in a conceptual plant designed by mineral processing engineers engaged by the Company.

There are six main kaolin producers in Australia, mainly supplying the local market. A period of consolidation of ownership has led to Unimin emerging as a major domestic producer. Australia currently produces close to 155,000 tpa. Kaolin occurs in all states of Australia with major deposits in WA, NSW, Qld, and Vic. There are very large resources of kaolin in WA and SA but the lack of water of suitable quality for processing has been a consistent impediment to the development of these deposits. Several of the deposits are in remote locations resulting in prohibitively high costs of transportation . Victoria has a significant kaolin resource at Axedale, with an open cut mine producing 50,000 tpa of ball clay, suitable only for the ceramic white ware industry. At the Lal Lal and Pittong deposits near Ballarat, Imerys Minerals Australia produces around 60,000 tpa...
