Sedimentary and Igneous Phosphate Deposits: Formation and ...

This element, also critical in a host of industrial applications, is a nonrenewable resource that is sourced primarily from the phosphatic mineral apatite, hosted in sedimentary and igneous ores. World phosphate resources are estimated by the U.S. Geological Survey at ca. 300,000 Mt, of which 95% are sedimentary and 5% are igneous.

Reagents in igneous phosphate ores flotation - ScienceDirect

Feb 01, 2005  Reagents used in the flotation of phosphate ores was recently reviewed by Sis and Chander (2003), with emphasis on sedimentary ores. This paper focuses on the flotation of igneous phosphate ores. The largest deposit of igneous phosphate mined today is Kola, in Russia, producing 9 million tonnes of apatite concentrate per year (39% P 2 O 5 ).
