Arrowsmith Brand Silica Sand Project
In 2023, VRX acquired the Arrowsmith Brand Project, extending the known JORC 2012 compliant Resources in the Arrowsmith area to more than more than 1.1Mt at an average 97.6% SiO2, and its footprint to more than 5,623Ha.
The Arrowsmith Brand Silica Sand Project is contiguous and south of Arrowsmith North and bounded to the south by the Brand Highway road reserve with silica sand similar to Arrowsmith North.
Testwork to date has indicated similar products can be produced utilising some of the infrastructure to be developed at Arrowsmith North. Mining Lease 70/1418 was granted at Arrowsmith Brand on 18 July 2023.
Arrowsmith Brand contains a subset of the previously reported Arrowsmith North mineral resource estimate (MRE).
The projects also benefit from adjacent rail lines connecting to ports in Geraldton (Arrowsmith).
