The Company

Sunstate Sands Bundaberg (Silica Sand Supplier) holds a number of Mining Leases and Mineral Development Leases at Coonarr Creek in an area approximately 20 kilometers south of Bundaberg, Queensland Australia.

Sunstate commenced mining in late 1996 to feed a pilot plant, which produced approximately 12,000 tonnes per annum of washed and dried sand, principally used in foundry and epoxy industries, architectural coatings, pool, and decorative finishes.

The pilot plant had demonstrated that the silica from this resource was ideally suited to meet the demand from a variety of specialist markets. In late 2000, the Directors approved construction of a new plant, completed in February 2001 with a capacity of over 100,000 tonnes per annum.

In 2006, we acquired the Sunstate Sands mine which formed part of a long term plan to provide quality products to local, national & global customers.  Sunstate Sands Bundaberg takes pride in proving our customers with high quality silica sand in various gradings as well as our  beautiful range of Pool Render products.

Sunstate Sands Bundaberg  can provide you with advice on quality silica sand grading requirements, pricing and supply to anywhere in Australia.

We also export our sand and pool render products to various international markets including, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, and the Pacific Islands.
