Newman – Background information

Newman, Western Australia is located at the eastern edge of the Hamersley Plateau at the headwaters of the Fortescue River. The town of Newman was constructed during 1967-69 by the Mount Newman Mining Company Proprietary Ltd. It is one of the towns in the East Pilbara local government authority and lies in the biogeographic region, of a montane desert landscape nestled between the ephemeral Fortescue and Ashburton Rivers. Vegetation in the region is dominated by Acacia shrublands and spinifex grasslands. The region annually receives ~300 mm of precipitation, mainly during the summer months. Wetter conditions in northwestern Australia prevailed in the past; between 46 and 36 ka regional conditions were likely colder but wetter than today due to a stronger-than-modern Indo-Australian monsoon cycle.

GRT dust suppression applications and products 

Drilling: The economic value of drilling operations should not happen at the expense of worker safety and health. It is important to implement industry best practice to ensure dust produced from drilling do not pose any health hazards to the mineworkers. We offer effective blast and drill dust control. 

ProductGRT: 12X 

Blasting: GRT takes a no-compromise stance to save lives and its sole mandate is to offer solutions at the apex of solving any dust-related problem arising from blasting activities before it takes place. We offer effective blast patter dust suppression solutions. 

ProductGRT: DC Binder 

Haul roads: Reports indicate that a mine site uses 9.4 million litres of water per day on just its haul road activities. Water is not only unsustainable but also very ineffective as a haul road dust suppression method. Using GRT:Haul-Loc results in great operational improvement and massive cost savings in water usage and fuel used for water truck movements. 

ProductGRT: Haul-Loc 

Stockpiles: We have grown a rapport across many industries for tackling stockpile dust challenges on different sites. Mining is one of our major areas. So, why wait to hear it from elsewhere when you can get it first hand from us.


Conveyor belts: GRT implements a combination of chemistry and particle size in making water work for conveyor belt dust control. We wet the material to optimal moisture content, preventing fines from being carried off into the air, or to the air above the material, to return airborne fines to the material bed. The material doesn’t have to be handled again.
