Silicon Overview

  • Established Mining District: Properties reside in established mining districts of SE British Columbia
  • Production Profile: Quartzite mineralization is high purity and similar to other producing silica mines
  • Mining and Milling: Potentially amenable to open-pit mining and established beneficiation methods
  • Excellent Infrastructure: Access to rails, road, labor and electricity in established mining districts

Projects Overview


MGX controls three high-grade silicon projects in British Columbia. Currently, there are no producers of silicon in western North America. The Company is evaluating the economic viability of producing silicon metal from high purity quartzite.

  • Longworth: Longworth is listed as one of the top silica occurrences in the Province by the BCGS (Simandl, 2014). Mineralization to date has been traced across a 7 kilometer strike length and outcrop sampling has shown consistent high grades of ~99% SiO2
  • Koot: Koot is a high-grade silica project formerly explored by Teck-Cominco in the 1980's. Mineralization at Koot consist of high-purity silicon dioxide (SiO2) occurring along a 400 meter strike zone that remains open in all directions.
  • Wonah: Wonah consists of two mineral claims located in the Fort Steele Mining Division. The property has potential to host a high purity quartzite-type silica deposit similar to the other quartzite deposits of the Mount Wilson Formation in southeastern British Columbia.
