HOUSTON, Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solar Quartz Technologies Corporation (OTC:SQTX) has completed its acquisition of extensive solar assets including HPQ silica deposits in Australia and exclusive processing technologies.

SQTX also announced the commencement of a Private Placement offering under SEC Rule 506(c) of one million newly issued restricted shares at $1.25 per share, with the intention of raising up to $1.25 million. Purchasers of these newly issued restricted SQTX shares will also be entitled to receive an additional 10 shares for every SQTX share purchased through the private offering, prior to November 15th, 2017.

About Solar Quartz Technologies Corporation.

High Purity Silica Quartz (HPQ) assets are rare globally, and are essential as primary feedstock for the production of High Purity Quartz Sand, an essential primary material necessary in the first stage production of high-tech Photo-Voltaic (PV) solar panels, semi-conductors, fiber optical cables, halogen lamps, HD and LCD television screens, and Epoxy Molding Compounds (EMC). Due to its sole ownership of the solar assets SQTX has significant cost advantages compared to traditional HPQ manufacturers in Norway, Russia and North Carolina.

SQTX is the sole owner of the two High Purity Quartz Silica deposits known as White Springs and Quartz Hill, located in Far North Queensland, Australia, which together, contain in excess of 15 million tons of 99.5%+ pure HPQ deposits, that is in high demand in the global marketplace as feedstock in the production of High Purity Quartz Sand (HPQS), and also in much demand in the high-end electronics manufacturing industry. The company is also seeking funds to build a new commercial scale HPQ pre-processing factory to generate early sales revenues from un-processed HPQ sales to China. Concurrently, it intends to proceed with the development of the second stage factory for processing this feedstock into High Purity Quartz Sand to supply manufacturers of PV solar panels and other high-end technology applications.

"The SQTX management team will initially focus on re-establishing previous $150 million orders from China, and orders for unprocessed HPQ raw quartz, to be delivered from the pre-processing factory in the major port in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia,” said the Houston TX-based Company CEO, Warren Dillard.
