Murray Zircon Pty Ltd is a mineral sands mining company focused on the production of heavy mineral concentrate (HMC) in the Murray Basin in South Australia. The Company’s principal asset is the Mindarie Mineral Sands Project located150km east of Adelaide in the Mallee region of South Australia.
Murray Zircon redeveloped and successfully operated the Mindarie Project since 2012, producing HMC which was exported to China. As of April 2015 the project was placed on care and maintenance due to low commodity prices, while completing mine rehabilitation commitments.
With the recovery of mineral sands commodity prices the company will be returning to production at Mindarie after detailed planning is completed.
