Welcome to the Sydney Construction Materials Website

Sydney Construction Materials is a privately owned resource exploration and development company based in Sydney, Australia. Its philosophy is to identify high-value, under-utilised sand and industrial mineral resources, and to develop such resources for extraction, beneficiation, and sale into high-end domestic and international markets.

The Company's flagship project, the Newnes Junction Sand Extraction and Kaolin Mining Project, to be located near Lithgow, NSW, is designed to be the most environmentally friendly of its type in the world. It was recently approved by the NSW Department of Planning. The next stage of the Newnes Junction project - developing the extraction site and processing site infrastructure - is currently in planning. SCM anticipates the project will commence operations within the next 12 months.
