Lochaline, Silica Sand Mine Canmore

Deposits of sand were known of in the late 19th century but it was only in 1923 that the Edinburgh Geological Survey carried out an analysis of sand sample which was found to be 99.69% silica. At that time there was a low price on imported glass sand, and together with the remoteness of the site, it was considered uneconomical for silica ...
