Industrial Sands, a wholly owned subsidiary of IDCZ, currently operates a silica sand plant located  20km out of Gweru  which processes silica sand into various sand products. The deposits at current extraction rates of 10,000MT per annum will last for more than 50 years.An opportunity therefore exists to co-develop the relevant infrastructure and processes through a joint venture or equity investment to increase the extraction rate and the range of sand related products. Estimated capital requirement for refurbishment is $4million.
