Based in Yorkshire, MINORE began life

Established in 1956 as South Elmsall Quarries Ltd and based in the heartland of Yorkshire, we soon became a trusted industry leader for quarrying and waste management in the region. Eager not to rest upon our laurels, and always looking forward, we evolved to become Mineral Processing Ltd, which again saw us innovating in our sector by mining previously filled landfills. Now as MINORE, with 50 years’ experience and an unfaltering commitment to our industry and clients, we continue to innovate and lead the way in the provision of tailored specialty clay minerals and reuse of natural capitals. Immersed in circular economy modelling, we offer our clients a unique, responsible and commercially centered approach to material management, something we call – Repurposing

At MINORE™ we take our work very seriously. It is something we are both passionate about and dedicated to. To help us maintain our continuous commitment to development and innovation we have six core values that drive and guide all we do:

  • Waste not, want not: we constantly strive to ensure thoughtful efficiency in all we do. By considering every facet of what we do and the way we work, we reduce impacts, create efficiencies and extract whole-life value from the office, our plant, to the redistribution of repurposed materials.
  • Accept responsibility: At MINORE™ we don’t view responsibility as a secondary consideration nor something to be compromised. We simply accept responsibility as a natural state, both for ourselves and the industries in which we work. Being better, makes business better.
  • Share value: we believe you receive ten-fold what you contribute and share. At MINORE™ we know that all ideas are worth sharing and the corporate and environmental equities we create should naturally be shared with our clients.
  • Be transparent: we believe in transparency in all we do. Information disclosure, clarity, and accuracy underpin all our relationships from our clients, suppliers, and end users.
  • Together we’re better: we believe in collaboration and partnership and we believe there is always a better way to do things. We are committed to working closely with our clients to share ideas and find the most effective solutions to any waste problem.
