Doral Mineral Sands Pty Ltd (DMS) operates a continuous, 24 hour processing and daytime only mining operation in the South West and Peel regions of Western Australia. Its operations include the Dardanup mine which commenced in mid-2002 (now fully rehabilitated), the Yoongarillup mine located near Busselton and the Keysbrook mine, located in Keysbrook / North Dandalup.
The Company has a number of projects currently in the pipeline, with the most advanced being Yalyalup, near Busselton.
Heavy mineral concentrate (HMC) from both Yoongarillup and the Keysbrook operations are transported via road to the mineral separation plant (MSP) in Picton. Using gravity techniques to concentrate the valuable heavy mineral from the clay and sand, the HMC is then dried and separated into the different products using a combination of magnetic and electrostatic techniques. It is then sold as final product to global customers.
