Metallica Minerals Limited (ASX:MLM) is an Australian development company focussed on delivering high purity silica sand to a diversified global customer-base.
Metallica’s 100% owned Cape Flattery Silica Sands (CFS) project is located in North Queensland, adjacent to the world class Cape Flattery Silica Sand mining and shipping operation owned by Mitsubishi.
The Cape Flattery project is globally-recognised for its high purity silica sand and superior location — home to one of the most prolific silica sand resources in the world.
Australia’s silica sand is set to play a critical role in the global transition to a low-carbon economy, calling for the accelerated development of high-purity sources of this sought-after mineral.
Global interest in reducing carbon emissions has resulted in a significant demand for solar power installations and is expected to translate into extensive use of high-purity silica sand. The Asia Pacific region accounts for 47 per cent of global demand for silica sand and it has seen a boom in solar panel sales around the world as countries move toward green and zero-emissions economies.
As demand increases for our sustainable, superior and sought-after silica sand, Metallica Minerals is keen to play its part in the global green economy.
