Mineral Sand Ore Mining

What are Mineral Sand Ores?

Mineral sand ores contain titanium-bearing minerals of ilmenite, rutile, and leucoxene, as well as the mineral zircon. They also contain trace quantities of the radioactive elements of uranium and thorium.


What are Mineral Sand Ores Used for?

Rutile, leucoxene, and ilmenite are mainly used in the building and construction industries. The titanium dioxide (TiO2) contained within these sands is a compound used primarily to produce white pigments, which are widely used in paints, plastics, papers, and inks.

Products with a higher TiO2 content are used in the manufacture of titanium metal, as well as in the welding flux industry.  Since the demand for these products has been increasing over time the market for these products will also continue to increase over the next decade.

MonitorPro is Perfectly Suited for the Environmental Data Management of Mineral Sand Ore Mining Industries

For over 10 years we have had users in the mineral sand ore mining sector, and numbers have steadily increased over that time.  Clients in this sector range from operations in the US, Africa, and Australia, all seeking to better manage their environmental obligations, monitoring, and compliance.


How can MonitorPro help with environmental data management in the mineral sand ore industry?

MonitorPro contains a suite of features built around our client’s processes in a range of industries. With flexibility at the core of everything we develop, it has been a seamless fit to support the demands of our mineral sand clients.

Several specific types of monitoring are more prevalent in mineral sand mining. One aspect is the clearing of land and its restoration. Clients can therefore use MonitorPro to track land restoration, seed collection, flora surveys, and fauna movements.

Another key characteristic of mineral sand ore mining is the radiological implication that the ore presents to the environment. Users therefore use MonitorPro for completing radiological surveys of various types, which enables the tracking of the levels of radiation and any possible contamination.
