Volume / Quality
North West Quarries sand mining operations occur at two locations on site; the main sand dune and within a portion of the East Peawah River.
The site contains dune and river sand reserves exceeding 3.5 million tonnes that will be predominantly supplied to construction, civil and concrete projects in the Pilbara Region.
Extensive laboratory testing of the reserves revealed high quality sand products with NON PI (plasticity index) and 0% clay fine silts which makes it both suitable and highly desirable for civil, construction and concreting applications.
