A kaolin deposit dominated by halloysite occurs within the Maralinga Lands of western South Australia. Halloysite is a tubular form of kaolin and global research interest into new and innovative uses of this natural nanotube is intensifying, including research by DMITRE personnel.  Potential uses of halloysite includes...

The Casterton Project hosts a very large body of high purity quartz sand outlined by historical drilling. Testwork to date indicates the sand has physical and chemical properties making it potentially suitable for glass, high purity silica and frac sand feedstock...

Located on western Eyre Peninsula and southwest of the Poochera Kaolin Project are coastal salinas Lake Purdilla and Lake Toorna which contain abundant gypsum (CaSO4). The mineral gypsum is hydrated calcium sulphate (CaSO4 2H2O) and principal uses are in the manufacture of plaster products including wall and ceiling boards, mouldings...

The Muster Dam magnetite iron deposit is part of regionally extensive magnetite-bearing sedimentary strata within Minotaur’s EL 5079 Mutooroo.

Poochera is a kaolin district of global significance. It contains many kaolin deposits with unique characteristics, including the deposit of "bright white" kaolin at Carey's Well, some 45km east of Streaky Bay on western Eyre Peninsula in South Australia
