Kaolin Clay Products

Tellus has approval over 25 years to mine up to 290,000 tpa of kaolin clay and to build a 40,000 tonnes kaolin clay plant. The kaolin clay can be used mostly in the environmental (immobilisation), paint and ceramics markets.

Tellus’ rock salt will be mined from the 200 to 300 metre-thick, 500 million-year-old, Chandler Formation salt bed, some 800 metres below the desert of central Australia from the proposed Chandler salt underground mine.
