In operation since 1955, SamQuarz is the largest producer of high-quality silica in South Africa, used primarily in the production of glass and in the metallurgical smelting process, and meets 35% of the country's total annual consumption. The operation, which produces two key products - high quality silica and chert - comprises a large open pit and processing plant.

SamQuarz has well-defined markets for its products. It supplies a number of blue-chip companies in the glass manufacturing industry and metallurgical sector.

The mine has also successfully penetrated the construction sector and is now aiming to develop new markets in the foundry industry.
