Development Authority has a new website

It was announced this week that Brantley County Development Authority has contracted with Serva Creative, a locally based web design company from Waycross, to design and host their new website.

Plans are to make the website more user friendly, with new updates to help attract new businesses to their community.

In addition, Derek Harrison, owner of Serva Creative, said that the new site will be completely PC, tablet and cell phone friendly, which is a real plus with today’s technology as so many people are accessing the web on their cell phones.

The completion is scheduled for the end of July 2014.

Zircon Mining Planned for Brantley County

NAHUNTA, GA – Southern Ionics, a Mississippi-based specialty chemicals company, has selected a 120 acre site in the Winocur Road area of Brantley and Charlton counties to mine zircon and other metals from the underlying sand. Two thirds of the area to be mined is located in Brantley County. Zirconium, which is obtained from zircon, is used in kidney dialysis, antidepressants, ceramics and paints.

Ron Rose, director of mining operations, stated that mining is scheduled to begin in late 2013. The projected date allows time for the company to obtain all of the necessary permits from the state Environmental Protection Division, the Army Corps of Engineers and other agencies.
