Project Overview

The Fingerboards Mineral Sands Project focuses on a high-grade area of heavy minerals in the Glenaladale deposit, about 20km northwest of Bairnsdale in East Gippsland, Victoria.

The project has the potential to be one of the world’s major producers of zircon, ilmenite, rutile and rare earths – minerals essential to technology, transport, communications and renewable energy.

Kalbar proposes to invest over $200 million in the development of the project, creating 200 direct jobs over the 15-20 year life of the project and creating significant economic benefits for the region.
