Quality Assessment of Quartz in Kukatpally, Ranga Reddy District, Telangana, India.


Quartz is used in Glass industry, Ferro-silicon industry, Iron and Steel refractory, Ceramic industry, Electrical abrasive industry and Paint industry. Quality assessment of Quartz helps in determining its utilization in a particular industry. To aid this study mapping of Quartz occurrences were carried out in Pochampally ,Hafeezpet , and Kukatpally area. Systematic sampling and mapping on 1:1000 scale was done to assess the quality of Quartz. Geologically the area forms the crystalline terrain consisting of granites and gneisses occasionally intruded by Quartz- Pegmatite veins. The quantity was assessed as the thickness of intrusions can vary. The general trend of the deposit is NNE-SSW. Detailed investigations proved that the Quartz in the study area is suitable for glass, Ferro-silicon, iron and steel refractory and foundry. The quality of the associated feldspars is found to be of good quality of ceramic grade. Environmentally land degradation has taken place.
