Zircon Sand Extraction Plant

Zircon Sand Application

Zircon is the other major product of the mineral sands industry and is a co-product of titanium mineral production. In most projects zircon is only a minor by-product and only rarely would zircon be considered the principal product, with titanium minerals as co-products. An increase in the importance of zircon has resulted from increased demand and the flow on increase in zircon prices in recent years.

The most important application for zircon is in the ceramics industry in the production of opacifiers used in surface glazes and pigments. Prior to the 1980s refractory applications were the most common use of zircon, used to make refractory bricks and shapes for use in steel and glass industries.

Zircon Sand Mining Operation

Mining of mineral sands is conducted either wet or dry. Wet methods are generally preferred for large tonnage, low clay orebodies. Dredging with a bucket wheel and suction is one of the lowest cost options for this method.
Dry methods employing earth moving equipment(self-elevating scrapers, bulldozer traps, truck and excavator and front end loader) are used to excavate and transport the sand to a feed preparation section. Variations to these methods involve different means of transporting the dry-mined sand: either by pumping or the use of conveyors.
