HUDSON DIATOMACAEOUS EARTH

HRS through its wholly owned subsidiary Hudson Diatomaceous Earth Pty Ltd is the tenement holder of 3 mining leases that form the Badgingarra and Drak Diatomite Project. HRS intends to produce diatomaceous earth as a commercial mineral for use in insecticides, absorbents and filters. The 3 mining leases form two separate Project locations:

  • Badgingarra mining area ('Badgingarra') on M70/129 and M70/842; and 

  • Drak mining area ('Drak') on M70/38

The Diatomaceous Earth tenements cover two small lakes that contain deposits of diatoms that can be processed into a diatomaceous earth product. The lakes within the tenements area are part of numerous small diatomite deposits dotted along the hinterland of Western Australia's coastline extending north of Perth.​

Mining at Badgingarra occurred in the 1990's within a single 12-month period. Currently, there is 20,000 tonnes ('t') of ROM ore stockpiled at Badgingarra, awaiting the development of new product and/or market opportunities. Hudson is currently investigating the option to supply diatomaceous earth into a number of small domestic markets.
