Donald Mineral Sands, Murray Basin
The Donald Project is a world class mineral sands project located in Australia’s Murray Basin. Donald is to be a standard open-cut mining operation, with an expected mine life of 31 years. After mining, minerals will be processed by conventional methods to produce heavy mineral concentrate. This will be processed through an on-site Mineral Separation Plant to recover zircon, rutile, ilmenite and leucoxene. The mine site is close to existing infrastructure, with road, rail and port networks in place. Further products produced from Donald will be available using technical processes developed by Astron China.
