Barite is one of the important components used in the manufacturing of drilling mud or fluid used in the oil industries when prospecting for petroleum. It is a naturally occurring mineral resource which is widely spread at various locations in Nigeria.
Nigeria is richly blessed with large deposit of solid minerals and various native elements. Initially, Barytes was imported into the country until the federal government in its effort to increase its local production level banned the importation of baryte. Zenith provide high performance barite mining equipment in Nigeria.
Barite Mining Methods
There are several methods to remove the barite mineral out of the ground. If the mineral is on the surface, mixed in dirt and sand, simple methods like panning and sluicing use water to separate the metal from the dirt. When the mineral is deposited in solid rock, miners will turn to hard-rock mining methods.
When the deposit is widely dispersed and low quality, a mining company may start an open-pit operation, using large equipment to break up and move huge amounts of material. Barite can be extracted by both open pit quarrying and underground mining method according to deposit properties.
