Where Our Silica Quartz is used

The uniqueness of our quartz provides a unique white colour and consistency for sensitive applications.

The Horse Creek Mine yields high-purity natural silica. This silica will be manufactured to sizes that cater to countless applications. As we build out our flotation process we will be able to generate concentrated silica reaching +99.9% SiO2, before value-added steps.

Glass

For any glass-making applications that require only the best quality feedstock. We are a massive proven source of silica with nominal iron content between 100-300ppm which is ideal for flint glass and architectural float glass for the civil construction industry.

Silicon Metal

We provide consistently +99.89% purity quartz. Only the best will do to produce silicon metal. Our quartz is the building block for silicones used in building materials, polysilicon used in solar, semiconductor wafers and as an alloying agent for aluminum.

Construction

Durable yet consistent for all your building applications. Silicones offer three major technologies to the construction industry in the form of sealants, water repellents and coatings.

Recreation

From sandbox, long jump pits to golf courses, and recreational surfaces. Our silica can be turned into sand that is used for golf course bunkers and greens as well as the construction of natural or synthetic athletic fields.

Filtration Media

Coarse quartz gravel, i.e. grain sizes > 2 mm, are available for use as support gravel. Chemically inert, silica will not degrade or react when it comes in contact with acids, contaminants, volatile organics, or solvents.
