⛏️ Kula Gold Limited is pleased to announce commercialisation studies on the Boomerang Kaolin Project (93.3Mt of Kaolinised Granite Resource) have identified and advanced Metakaolin production for the Green Construction Industry.

The Boomerang Kaolin Deposit is located near Marvel Loch/Southern Cross, Western Australia and the company took just 12 months to convert from discovery stage to a maiden resource of scale.

Study work to date suggests that the Boomerang Kaolin mineralisation supports the development of a shallow open-pit long life mine, combined with industry-standard processing technology.

Kula Gold Chairman Mark Stowell appeared on 6PR Radio last week discussing the uses of Kaolin, and the great potential of Metakaolin in reducing carbon emissions in the Green Construction Industry.

“Kaolin has a wide range of uses, ceramics, paper, fibreglass, HPA, rubber, plastics, polishes, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics like toothpastes, and in construction for Metakaolin,” Stowell told Matt Birney on the Bulls N’ Bears Report.

“Metakaolin has some great properties when mixed with cement. You get stronger, denser, more durable concrete. Reduced concrete cancer and it is less permeable to water. And on the plus side as well, there’s about 8 tonnes of carbon dioxide savings per house-build using 15% Metakaolin as a cement substitute when you are making concrete.

Commercialisation studies on the Boomerang Kaolin Project have identified and advanced Metakaolin production for the Green Construction Industry. A new wholly owned subsidiary Boomerang Kaolin Pty Ltd has been incorporated.

The use of Metakaolin as a replacement for approximately 15% of cement in concrete production has many benefits.

For every residential house built using 100t of concrete, there is a reduction of ~8t in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In addition, we will see improvements to many concrete properties, such as increased “early” and “cured” strength, increased flexural strength, increased concrete density, reduced porosity (which leads to a lower temperature during hydration and therefore, less shrinkage and cracking), less permeability (which leads to reduced risk of concrete cancer) and greater durability, all for nominal additional cost.

The deposit remains open laterally in all directions and logistics are exceptional, as indicated below, being a sealed road through the tenement within 4km of the deposit, and the Marvel Loch townsite 5km, and rail siding at Southern Cross 43km.

The Boomerang Kaolin Project team continue to work on the commercialisation process, metallurgical studies, and with consultants and regulators to progress the agreements and approvals required for any future development.
