Ball Clays for Ceramics
In 2014, a new division was added into our profile for the supply of Ball Clays for the ceramics Industry.Tha sales has been brisk and thus far about 80,000 MT of Ball Clays have been exported to Bangladesh ,India and the Middle East. The Ball clays are good materials mined from Terong in Taiping and is a semi plastic clay variety with high brightness values.
In 2016, Kromnickel Sdn Bhd , Kromnickel Sdn Bhd became an active miner for the Kaolinite Mine at RPT Tg Rambutan Perak.This mine is a mountainous granitic Kaolinite interspaced with high quality Quartz.
Kaolin is mined from this mountain since 2016 .Thus Far a great deal of mining activity has taken place and about 100,000 Mt of Raw Crude Kaolin has been mined and sold to companies like Sibelco,Budi Masyur, Locally and about 75% of the Rae kaolin has been exported to China, India and Sri Lanka.
Kromnickel Sdn Bhd acquired an interest into Serta Minerals Sdn Bhd which in turn has signed an agreement with MB Inc ,perak to explore, prospect and mine Kaolin on 3 plots of land at Tanah mas Bidor in Perak.
The prospecting on some areas have returned positive and efforts are underway to start mining in 2018 on this area. The general morphology of this area is also Kaolinitic, silicite formation again interspaced with quartizite lumps.
The entire supervision of this plots for prospecting was carried out together with Kromnickel Sdn Bhd with support from Sibelco as well.
The prospect for Kaolin is indeed very good and we look forward to our new venture starting to mine towards the 2nd half of 2018.
Quartz Lump Harvesting
Kromnickel Sdn Bhd started to mine quartz from the site at Tg Rambutan in 2017 .The quartz lumps have passed the test for the Thermal Strength (TST) a very vital component for the introduction to Ferro Silicon manufacture.
Currently there is an estimated 350,000 Mt of quartz volume available at the Tg Rambutan mine. Some effort was made to supply to some steel companies in Malaysia to use the raw material as a flux for their Blast Furnaces. We have engaged with steel mills locally and some trial lots carried out for use in the Blast Furnace Operation since 2016. Thus far ,we have had small teething issues and that are being addressed. We are confident that in 2017/2018 period the steel sector growth especially locally ,will provide us the impetus to move forward for the Quartz lump biz favourably from our site.
Kromnickel Sdn Bhd is also aggressively marketing the same in other Asean countries upon the successful trial runs at local steel plant in Perai.
