Silica sand is one of the most widely utilised commodities globally, second only to air and water. It is a fundamental ingredient in producing various types of glass, including specialised solar panels, cutting-edge glass applications, and foundry casting. This resource is finite and in increasingly short supply, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, resulting in escalating prices.

The Arrowsmith project, situated 270 kilometres north of Perth, is paramount to VRX Silica’s portfolio. Arrowsmith North, with a projected minimum mine life of 25 years, can produce over 2 million tonnes per year of high-grade silica sand (99.7% SiO2)* for export to Asia’s foundry, container glass, and flat glass markets. The project is in an advanced permitting stage and is poised to lead the company’s production efforts.

Muchea, positioned just 50 kilometres north of Perth, is a silica sand project characterised by its exceptionally high-grade quality (99.9% SiO2)*. This project can supply the precise grade of sand required for producing ultra-clear glass used in solar panels and other advanced glass applications.

The Boyatup project, situated 100 kilometres east of Esperance, is currently in the development phase. It is poised to contribute to the supply of silica sand for the glass market.
