Drilling and sampling will determine the initial product grades, and further testing using the beneficiation process will identify an indicative assessment of the output product. Initial grade results are typically lower than the finished product grades after the completion of the beneficiation process.
Commercial Grade Silica Sand
After beneficiation the output product would need to meet this range of specifications:
|Parameter||Specification Photovoltaic Glass||Specification Container Glass|
|Particle Size||109-700 microns||109-700 microns|
|Distribution||24-140 mesh||24-140 mesh|
|Silica (SiO2)||> 99.5%||> 98.5%|
|Iron (Fe2O3)||< 0.01% (100 ppm)||< 0.04% (400 ppm)|
|Titanium (TiO2)||< 0.04% (400 ppm)||< 0.1% (1000 ppm)|
|Aluminium (Al2O3)||< 0.10% (1000 ppm)||< 0.50% (5000 ppm)|
Product Specifications Risk
A significant project risk is not meeting market specifications for the product. Failure to meet product specifications may result in selling the products at discounted rates, or not being able to find buyers for the product.
