About Magnesite

Magnesite in its purest form is 47.6% Magnesium Oxide ("MgO"). Magnesite generally serves as an excellent feedstock for the production of MgO. MgO in turn is a valuable and widely used industrial mineral. Uses of MgO include abrasives, animal feed supplements, chemicals, coatings, construction, electrical, fertilizers, foundries, glass manufacture, insulation, lubricating oils, pharmaceuticals, plastics manufacture, refractory and ceramics, rubber compounding, steel industry, sugar refining, sulfite wood pulping, and wastewater treatment. At this time MGX is focused on the refractory and steel industries.
