Quiborax S.A.

Company Detail


Quiborax, founded in 1986, is a Chilean mining company with operations in the Salar de Surire in the country's northern Region I. Quiborax produces a range of boron products, including boric acid; boron granules (known as granulex); and fertilizers and insecticides, which combine boron or boric acid with calcium sulfate, sodium borates and other salts. In June 2004, what was then Bolivia's mining and hydrocarbons ministry decided to rescind Quiborax concessions to mine ulexite in Salar de Uyuni in Potosí department in southwest Bolivia, arguing breach of environmental standards and irregularities in the awarding of the concessions. Quiborax is the Chilean parent of Bolivian company Non Metallic Minerals (NMM), which mines ulexite and other evaporites at Salar de Uyuni.
