Select quartz gravel is crushed, washed, and classified into multiple low-iron quartz commodities. Glass sand (40 x 140 US Mesh) is then dried and separated from remaining iron-bearing magnetic minerals to make an ultra-low iron glass sand (Principio White). Following magnetic separation, our glass sand is 99.998% SiO2. A grinding mill will be added to the circuit and commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2023 to produce high-purity silica powders to customer specifications.
