We have been using Munash Rockdust for 12 months and it is fantastic. We sell it online and also to retail outlets but many of the outlets do not fully understand the true benefits of why they should be suggesting soil mineralisation.

If you want a good quantity, cheap, buy a trailer load of crusher dust and sieve the small rock pieces out, can use on a pathway or similar.
Have used it for years, usually by cycling thru compost heap.November 20, 2011 at 4:56 am #314257perthgirlMember
I’ve just read through this thread. Very interesting. Anyone know where I can get some rock minerals in the Perth area?? The trailer load idea sounds like a good one but knowing me it’ll sit there for months annoying my DH so I’ll start out small.

If anyone is looking for Minplus the company may not currently be in operation (hence no supply). There was fatal workplace accident there recently. Last time I drove past all the signs had been taken down. I imagine workplace health and safety will be crawling all over the place for a while yet.November 20, 2011 at 8:24 pm #314260selinaneilMember

Landscaping yards generally sell their bulk bin stuff in smaller bags as well. Crusher dust is a staple landscaping yard stock.September 2, 2012 at 12:25 pm #314263
I just use crusher dust from a basalt source.
Much cheaper same stuff with out the packaging, sieving,marketing and chemical analysis.
I don’t sieve it or anything the bigger gravel is just as good as the dust.
Its all slow release just add worms,the bigger rocks act as water crystals and aerators.
Closest thing you will get to volcanic ash.
I also had bio char.
I throw both around the garden and dig some in when planting.
With the crusher dust one application is all you should need in a lifetime.
It goes well in potting mix too.February 20, 2016 at 7:55 am #314264jimbobMember

Some home brand kitty litter should give you lots of bentonite if you have sandy soil too
