· This paper reviews the geology, history, current beneficiation practices, uses, marketing, and future outlook of phosphate in South Africa. The vastness of the reserves, and the industry's efficiency and competitiveness in world terms, are highlighted.
Foskor is a proudly South African producer of phosphates and phosphoric acid with international exposure. Foskor unlocks shareholder value through the profitable, responsible and sustainable beneficiation of phosphate rock into either phosphoric acid or phosphate-based granular fertilisers sold globally. Foskor is the only vertically integrated phosphate producer in South Africa.
PHOSPHATE DEPOSITS. The known phosphate deposits of the world are estimated at approximately 900 000 million tons of phosphate ore containing the mineral apatite Ca10(PO4)6F2. It is also estimated that the continental shelves (in the sea) could produce a further 300 000 million tons. Approximately 5 000 million tons of the former volume are lo ed in South Africa.
About 15% of phosphate reserves are found in volcanic (extrusive) igneous rocks. These reserves are found in Russia, Finland, South Africa and Brazil. Most phosphate reserves are from sedimentary rocks. The phosphate forms in the shallow oceans mainly due to bacterial activity, but only when several conditions are met. Their formation is pretty ...文件大小: 379KB
