Where is Terrequip’s Bentonite sourced?

Terrequip own and operate our Gurulmundi Bentonite Mine, which is approximately 30km north of Miles, Queensland. The Sodium Bentonite from this area has a global reputation for its quality and characteristics and is regarded as the best in Australia.

What is Bentonite?

Bentonite is a clay that has unique absorbing and swelling properties. It is made up of mainly montmorillonite, which is part of the smectite group of clays. There are two main types: Sodium Bentonite and Calcium Bentonite.

How is Bentonite mined?

Bentonite is graded and selectively mined using trucks, shovels and motor scrapers.

Finished Bentonite Products:

  • TRUGEL 100
  • TRUGEL 200
  • TRUGEL 13A

Bentonite Markets:

Animal Feed

Used as an additive in stock feed rations to reduce the incidence of acidosis, absorb toxins and provide fill in the gut which can assist in food conversion efficiency.

Civil Construction

Bentonite when mixed into a slurry is ideal for use in diaphragm wall construction, tunnelling projects (TBM), piling and pipe jacking. Bentonite is also successfully used for preventing leaks in dams on farms and other industries such as mining.


Bentonite when mixed into a slurry is used in the minerals, water well and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) drilling industries to lubricate/cool the bit, take cuttings away and stabilise the borehole.


Used in the green sand moulding process as a binder of foundry sand. A high quality Bentonite improves the quality of the castings, increases recycle rates, assists with water retention and improves binding strength.


Bentonite is used in many applications such as but not limited to water treatment industry, waste industry, medical industry, wine clarification and ceramics production industries.

Pet Litter

Bentonite efficiently and effectively absorbs pet waste and odour.


Where is Terrequip’s Limestone sourced?

Terrequip own and operate the Elbow Valley Limestone mine located 20 minutes south of Warwick, Queensland. The mine has been producing high-quality Limestone for almost 100 years and is highly regarded for its chemistry.

What is Limestone?

Limestone is a carbonate sedimentary rock, composed primarily of the minerals calcite and aragonite which are different forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO3).

How is Limestone mined?

Terrequip Limestone is mined using drill and blast methods. It is then classified into different grades before being hauled to our nearby plant for processing.

What is limestone used for?

Limestone is used in a broad range of applications including but not limited to animal feed, cement manufacture, civil construction, soil pH correction and decorative aggregates.

Finished Limestone Products:


Limestone Markets:

Animal Feed

Limestone is used as an additive in stock feed rations as a source of Calcium and to aid in digestion.

Agriculture/Soil Amendment

Limestone is spread on paddocks to help adjust pH (reduce acidity), increase calcium levels and repair non wetting soils. Limestone is also used to treat Acid Sulphate Soils.

Cement and other manufacturing

Limestone is a critical ingredient in the manufacture of cement. It is also used in many other industrial markets such as filtration and water treatment.


Limestone aggregates used as road base and decorative aggregates in residential and commercial applications.


What is Kaolin?

Kaolin is primarily made-up of Kaolinite, which is a hydrous aluminosilicate. Kaolin is well regarded for its ability to disperse in water, its plasticity and, of course, its white colour.

How is Kaolin mined?

Kaolin is mined by removing overburden and then selectively mining by using excavators.

Finished Kaolin Products:


Kaolin Markets:


Kaolin can be used in the manufacturing of ceramics to assist with gloss, hardness and colour.


Kaolin is a key ingredient in the manufacture of bricks and pavers for the building industry. The unique white colour of Kaolin enables lighter shades in finished products as well as improving hardness.


Kaolin is used in the paper making process as a paper coating to enhance smoothness, brightness and gloss.
