Marwit Rod El Leqah Quartz Deposits as a Strategic Source of High Purity Quartz

Evaluation of Marwit Rod El Leqah deposit as pegmatite high purity quartz source for advanced applications was conducted through the geological, mineralogical and geochemical studies. Elemental analysis of a representative quartz sample showed that the quartz deposits were classified as medium purity quartz with 99.575% average SiO2 content and about 0.422% (4220 ppm) of accompanied mineral. Field study and petrography investigation using optical polarized transmitted microscope and reflected light microscope revealed that these impurities were mainly found as solid particulates of iron oxide, muscovite, rutile, orthoclase, granitic rafts, and as fluid inclusions as well. Moreover, structural undesirable trace elements were also presented in the quartz sample.
