SHIRE COUNCILLORS VISIT SHEFFIELD'S MINERAL
SANDS

Shire Councillors attended the Thunderbird Mineral Sands
project site on 20 July 2016 with Sheffield Resources
Managing Director Mr Bruce McFadzean.
`It's a mineral sands project offering up around 140
permanent local jobs, and that means at least 140
families living in the region would directly benefit. Long
term job prospects underpin regional sustainability which
then underpins the retention of regional lifestyle values`
Mr McFadzean advised.
`It is a perfect project to demonstrate we can move
forward together. We can co-exist respectfully - tourism,
conservation, development, culture and employment.
Mineral sands are used by you everyday, in your
toothpaste and artificial joints, your crockery and
porcelain, paint, food colouring, medicines and
sunscreen`.
`And the project is intergenerational, with our studies
showing a life of mine of more than 40 years, meaning
this is a project for our children's children,` Mr
McFadzean.
The products would potentially be exported through the
north-west ports of Derby and Broome to markets in
China, other Asian destinations, Europe and the Middle
East.
