Abstract

The results of examining high-purity quartzites retrieved from the Eastern Sayan Mountains (namely, the Bural–Sardag deposit), extracting ultra-high purity quartz concentrates from them, and depositing silica glass using the vacuum-compression method are reported. The flowsheet for their beneficiation is elaborated. The characteristics of quartz concentrates and silica glass based on them are provided.
