The potash ores are the main raw material used to produce potash and compound fertilizers and other chemicals. The potash ore generally consists of sylvite (KCl), halite (NaCl the rock forming mineral) containing the inclusions of carnalite, anhydrite and silicate and carbonate (insoluble residue).
The potentiality of the alkali breakdown of the poly mineralized ore material south Gabal ElAurf area, central Eastern Desert, Egypt is investigated. It includes the multiple oxide mineral tanteuxenite, monazite, bastnasite, anatase, as well as zircon. This ore material assaying lanthanides (RE2O3 1.9%), niobium (Nb2O5 1.25%) as well as titanium and zirconium (TiO2 and ZrO2 1.23% and 1.12%
In one case, autogenous mills were used to crush run of the mine ore to about 8 mesh for flotation. Scrubbing is usually accomplished in a series of small highly agitated cells, designed to liberate the fine clay from the Potash mineral. During this stage, enough fresh water is added to the high Carnallite ores to dissolve the magnesium. The
Potassium Chloride, or Potash, is a mineral formed from the evaporation of large salt water deposits and used in the agricultural sector mainly as fertilizer. Mosaics K3 Potash mine near Esterhazy, Saskatchewan, when completed will provide raw potash ore to the K2 and K1 mine sites via overland belt conveyor systems. The ore will be
Potash (especially potassium carbonate) has been used in bleaching textiles, making glass, and making soap, since about AD 500.Potash was principally obtained by leaching the ashes of land and sea plants. Beginning in the 14th century potash was mined in Ethiopia.One of the world's largest deposits, 140 to 150 million tons, is located in the Tigray's Dallol area.
Potash occurs in soft deposits generally associated with sodium chloride and varying amounts of clay slime, which because of its colloidal character, complicates the beneficiation process.. Potash ores generally contain 20 to 40 percent KCL with the balance being NaCl and a small amount of clay slime, the latter usually in the order of 1 to 1½%.
