Tormin is a unique deposit due to the process and speed of which the mineral sands are replenished. Through the naturally occuring tidal actions of the Atlantic ocean, high-grade mineral sands are continually re-deposited on the shores of Tormin mining tenement, a process Mineral Commodities is able to leverage from, maximising mineral yield, whilst minimising the environmental impact.
A significant portion of mineral sands EDR is in areas quarantined from mining because they are largely incorporated in national parks and other areas with restricted access to mining. Geoscience Australia estimates that around 17% of ilmenite, 12% of rutile and 14% of zircon EDR is unavailable for mining.
