QMAG owns one of the world’s largest deposits of cryptocrystalline magnesite, known for its the superior characteristics of high reactivity and greater surface area. All downstream magnesia products are manufactured using tightly-controlled, technical processes before being supplied to a variety of global markets including the refractory, chemical, agricultural, environmental and hydrometallurgical sectors.
The mining, pre-concentration and beneficiation of magnesite occurs at the Kunwarara deposit, located 65km north of the Central Queensland town of Rockhampton. The graded material is then transported to the Parkhurst production facility, which is located on the outskirts of Rockhampton, for downstream processing.
Finished magnesia products are supplied to customers globally, utilising a wide range of packaging, storage and transport options.
