The mining process at Diamond Creek is typical drill & blast, with ore loaded & hauled to our laydown area at the foot of the mountain where primary crushing is carried out through a mobile jaw crusher. Crushed ore (minus 50mm) is then trucked to our milling facility in Spanish Fork for downstream sizing, packaging and despatch to customers. Third para: With our in-house milling and packaging facilities.
The mined material only requires crushing, milling and bagging before being sold as high-grade organic rock phosphate fertiliser – a 23% total phosphorus pentoxide (‘P205’) premium product and importantly with minimum 12% available P205 which is significantly higher than our competitors.
With our in-house processing plant, we can adapt our premium, higher-grade phosphate resources to deliver customised products for the specific needs of local soil, climate, and crops with the ultimate aim of generating higher crop yields for our customers.
