A cost-effective product for reducing soil acidity

Australian agriculture and horticulture are facing a major production and yield inhibiting problem due to increased soil acidity. Increased soil acidity inhibits the ability of plants and crops to access important growth nutrients like phosphorous and nitrogen which are essential for plant growth and health.

Stoney Pinch Sands Pty Ltd (SPS) will capitalise on this serious problem confronting Australian agriculture through its access to advanced technology used to micronise the lime and silicon that can reverse soil activity.

Stoney Pinch Sands Point of Difference (POD) is its ability to produce its micronized products at competitive prices – including through electricity costs when compared to using less efficient and conventional ball mill technology.

Extensive deposits of high-quality lime identified

SPS has access to extensive deposits of high-quality lime, the base ingredient in reversing and controlling soil acidity.

The new micronizing technology allows a cost-effective and faster method of getting lime into the vital soil root zone where plant growth and health is determined.


Access to significant deposits of silicon sand

SPS also has access to a significant deposit of high-quality Silicon Sand. Silica compounds (derivatives of silicon) are also vital for plant health and disease resistance. It can also be delivered into the seed bed in a similar way to micronised and pelletised lime.

Projected financial returns are attractive, with the goal to grow the business from revenue of approximately $1.27M in year one, to $1.96M within three years. This is projected to deliver an EBITDA return on capital invested of 22.2%.
