LOCHALINE QUARTZ SAND LTD.

Lochaline Quartz Sand Ltd. owns and operates the silica sand mine in Lochaline, Morvern, in the West Highlands of Scotland. The main product of Lochaline Mine is LQS85, a high quality silica sand with low iron content and exceptional whiteness, unique among UK sand sources. The sand is particularly suited for production of top quality flint glass and is valued for a range of other uses where consistent white colour and low iron content are demanded.

In addition to LQS85, Lochaline Mine has developed an additional sand grade, LQS500. This product is similar in appearence to LQS85 but with the  iron content controlled at a slightly higher level.  This product is a high purity silica sand suited for Clear glass production and is also suitable for any customers who require a white colour but where the absolute iron content is not critical. 

The plant has a fully equipped laboratory on site. Our product quality is closely monitored using modern analytical techniques including X-Ray Fluorescence. 

Lochaline Quartz Sand Ltd. is a joint venture between the Italian mining company Minerali Industriali and the global glass manufacturer NSG (owner of the famous Pilkington brand).
