MIRIWINNI LIME HAS VARIOUS LOCATIONS ACROSS QUEENSLAND SUPPLYING LIME, DOLOMITE, GYPSUM, SILICA, MAGNESIUM AND PHOSPHATE
Ag Lime is mined and processed at:
Mt Garnet: About 2.5Hr south west of Cairns
• Quaid road Mt Molloy: About 0.5 Hr north of Mareeba

About 1 hr out of Mt Garnet
Dolomite is mined by excavator and put through a crushing plant. The processing is greatly affected by weather conditions. When Dolomite is damp the process is slow due to the crushing plant clogging up with the Magnesium.

WE ARE A FAMILY BUSINESS SUPPLYING THE REGIONS SUGAR AND AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRIES SINCE 1927
The formation of Miriwinni Lime in the 1970’s has been by far the biggest contribution by the Wilkins family to the sugar and agricultural industries of FNQ with a consistent track record of success.
Our company, which today is jointly owned by Max and Robert Wilkins who, as a group, grow over 35,000 tonnes of sugar cane, are third generation cane farmers and have over the many years seen and have been involved with many changes to the sugar and agricultural Industries.
IT’S ONLY NATURAL THAT THE MIRIWINNI LIME SPREADING SERVICE IS AVAILABLE TO ALL FARMERS
Truck spreaders make up most of the fleet. The trucks are tandem drive with lock up back ends. These trucks cover fallow ground, ratoon cane, pasture, road stabilisation, prawn ponds and some other special applications. In spread mode the spreaders have booms that are 9.5m wide.
Our 4x4 truck spreader has spinners and is used for broadcasting fertiliser in pastures, soft going country, for areas that are not friendly to using booms and various specialised jobs that require a different approach.
