River Sands- Since 1974
River Sands starting sand mining in 1974 at Carbrook QLD. After exhausting supply, the dredging operation was moved nearby to Eagleby in 2002. The sand is dredged from Eagleby, pumped 1.2km under the Logan River, and then separated into three different sizes (fine, medium and Coarse) at the Carbrook processing plant.
Once separated, the three sand grades are then moved to the adjoining packing factory. They are dried, sized and packed into the Easy Mix, Applied Concrete Solutions and Render Systems Australia ranges of packaged Concrete, Mortars, Synthetic Turf Sands, Screeds, Renders and Filter Sands.
The company also supplies sand to leading masonry and asphalt factories.
At this time the only materials available for sale are the below items including Soft Fall Sand, Horse Arena Sand and Decorative Gravel.
