Industrial Minerals reported results from its Albany High Purity Silica Sand Project in southwestern Western Australia.

The company holds exploration licenses for 470 km2 of area within 40 km of the Port of Albany, which provides potential for high-quality silica sand production.

Initial tests show low iron oxide levels, indicating the possibility of premium PV glass silica sand.

The results offer the potential for a premium-grade PV Glass market product with cost-effective transport proximity to the Port of Albany.
