Katonto quarry: new factory, new products
In Kolwezi, EGMF is carrying out major works to modernize its facilities and diversify its offer in crushed products. Work began in 2019 and will be completed in the second quarter of 2020. The objective of this investment is ambitious: triple the production of crushed products and offer a new range of products: washed sand.
This investment allows the Forrest Group to be the only one to offer such high quality crushed products in the Kolwezi region.
30.000 tons/month production
In order to meet the growing demand for crushed and prefabricated concrete, EGMF has built a new crushing plant on the Katonto quarry site. This factory will eventually produce 30,000 tons / month. It is equipped with dry tracks and a wet line, capable of producing washed sands.
The advantages of washed sand
Washed sand is a constituent of choice for the manufacture of concrete, cement or mortar. It has the advantage of containing little clay, which produces better quality concrete. The washed shortbread can in particular be used in the realization of drains which, to function correctly, must contain the least possible clay.
The city of Kolwezi is experiencing unprecedented economic development and building materials are in great demand. In this context, the crushed products produced by EGMF are a safe bet. The Katonto quarry is renowned for the quality of its rock containing high quality sandstone and quartzites (very high quartz content).
