The size and volume of the Mulcoa® mining operation is impressive, with annual mining of over 1,000,000 tons of ore. After mining, C-E Minerals is committed to land reclamation, and through its comprehensive program, returns the land to its original state, providing wildlife habitats and a variety of recreational activities.
Clay is first dried and ground to homogenize the ore for product conformity and consistency. This homogenized powder is delivered to a pug mill/extruder, where it is mixed with water and extruded under a vacuum to form dense noodle-shaped pellets. The pellets are dried and then conveyed to storage bins for later calcining in a rotary kiln. Customers can specify kiln run Mulcoa® calcines for internal crushing and screening at their own facilities, or purchase over 100 different pre-sized products from C-E Minerals. These are shipped by truck, rail and vessel.
"Kiln Run" is the first finished product to emerge from C-E Minerals advanced process. All other Mulcoa® and Mulgrain™ products are crushed and screened from kiln run.
To meet customer needs, the Mulcoa crushing/screening and blending plants are designed to handle custom products. Besides Mulcoa® and Mulgrain™, the Mulcoa® facility also processes Alpha Star® from China, bauxite, fused white alumina, and tabular alumina.
