KAOLIN GEOLOGY IN MIDDLE GEORGIA

THE CYCLE IS COMPLETE

The volume and quality of the deposits, as well as market applications, usually determine the life of a kaolin mine. Blending of low and high quality deposits conserves and extends reserves, but requires the simultaneous operation of several mines over many years.

The objective of kaolin mining is to profitably extract a useful and beneficial industrial mineral and then to return the land to a stable and productive use.

Reclamation completes the cycle. The land again produces renewable resources such as timber and agricultural products, wildlife and fish, and recreation for present and future generations.
