In 1975 Ian Morley, a man of considerable experience in the mining industry, began work on a history of the Australian sand mining industry. I agreed to supervize the writing of the history. Black Sands is the history of sand mining on the eastern coast of Australia in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It covers the technical, business, and political aspects of the mining.

Most of the Mineral Sand Mining industry's products proceed to downstream smelting and refining companies for processing prior to being exported or used by domestic manufacturers. Titanium dioxide products are mainly sold to pigment manufacturers, while zircon is primarily sold to producers of refractory bricks for use in metal smelting operations.

History of Australia's Minerals Industry. The Story of Minerals In Australia. The Goldrush of the 1850s. Minerals began to be produced in Australia in large quantities from the early days of European settlement at Sydney Cove. Within ten years of the First Fleet arriving in 1788, coal was discovered near Newcastle in New South Wales and later to the south and west of the settlement. Here he washed sand and gravel in a borrowed tin dish and of the six dishes he washed, all but one yielded a grain of gold. Hargraves' efforts to publicise his find started the first goldrushes and others followed in Victoria, particularly at Ballarat and Bendigo.

Heavy mineral sands are placer deposits formed most usually in beach environments by concentration due to the specific gravity of the mineral grains.

MZI Resources Limited opened a mineral sands mine, about 5 kilometres south-west of Keysbrook in late 2015. All of the ilmenite at the site is high grade. Regions containing this locality. Australian Plate (Australia Plate). The location is 70 kilometres south of Perth. The deposit covers 1400 hectares, as a dunal deposit with no overburden, mineralisation 2 to 5 metres depth from the surface. It has an unusual heavy mineral suite, compared to the other titanium and zircon deposits in Western Australia. Leucoxene is the major component of the deposit.
