WA Kaolin invested approximately $ 42 million to acquire a project from Rio Tinto in 1999. This included all engineering and feasibility studies related to Nagaya, and the foundation for commercializing the project was developed.

As part of that work, WA Kaolin conducted trial mining and processing and developed a dry processing method (K99 process) at the Kwinana plant. It produces ultra-brightness along with high quality Wickepin kaolin resources. High quality kaolin products at low cost compared to other methods that rely on chemical bleaching and multiple wet mechanical and magnetic separation methods.

The Quinana plant has a maximum production capacity of 5 tons per hour and currently operates on a roster 16 hours a day, 5 days a week.

WAK is scheduled to be listed on ASX in November 2020.
