OPPORTUNITIES IN KAOLIN BEATIFICATION IN NIGERIA; INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY IN NIGERIA.

Kaolin is an important and widely used industrial mineral which is refined from Kaolinite. It is a naturally – occurring mineral of the clay family and may contain a number of impurities such as quartz, feldspar, tourmaline, ilmenite, zircon, etc, which were derived from the parent rock.

The bulk of the Kaolinitic clay deposits in the country are either sedimentary or residual in origin and are usually associated with granitic rocks. Occurrences of kaolin have been recorded in different parts of the country and specific abundant deposits have been identified in parts of Enugu, Anambra, Kaduna,Katsina, Plateau, Ondo, Ogun, Oyo, Bauchi, Sokoto, and Borno States.

Kaolin has many industrial applications in paper, ceramic, rubber, and plastics industries. Paper industry is the main consumer where Kaolin is used as filler in the sheet and coating on the surface of the sheet and new applications are still being discovered. It is used,among others, in paper, paint, rubber, plastics and ceramics industries.

Kaolin beneficiation plant depends on the nature of the crude ore and product end use. There are two kinds of application process in industrial production line: dry process and wet process. Usually the hard kaolin choose dry beneficiation plant and soft kaolin adopt wet beneficiation plant.

In the kaolin beneficiation process, crushing is the important procedure. Usually kaolin crushing process includes primary crushing and secondary crushing. Cone crusher is used as kaolin crusher in the kaolin primary crushing process. It can crush kaolin into small pieces with the size less than 25mm. Kaolin Cone crusher is used in kaolin secondary crushing process. Crushed kaolin after cone crusher is less than 6.35mm.

Kaolin beneficiation plant mainly including kaolin crusher, kaolin washer machine, kaolin vibrating screen, kaolin flotation machine, kaolin dryer machine, kaolin magnetic separator.

Kaolin beneficiation technology applies hydrocyclon classification; sometime also use centrifugal classifier, sand mill, high gradient magnetic separator, flotation separator etc.

Nigerian Kaolin is known to have purity as high as 90% and an estimated that the annual national demand for kaolin is over 350,000 tones with local production meeting about 80% of the demand and the remaining sourced through importation.

OPPORTUNITIES IN TALC BEATIFICATION IN NIGERIA; INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY IN NIGERIA.

Talc, which is a soft, hydrous magnesium silicate (3Mg04Si02H20), is used in a wide range of industries including the manufacture of ceramics, paints, paper, and asphalt roofing. The end-uses for talc are determined by variables such as chemical and mineralogical composition, particle size and shape, specific gravity, hardness, and color.

An estimated reserve of over 100 million tonnes of talc has been obtained in Niger, Osun, Kogi, Kwara, Ogun, Taraba and Kaduna States.The colour of the Nigerian talc varies from white through milky-white to grey.

Talc has various industrial applications. The paint, cosmetics,fertilizer,pharmaceutical and ceramic industries are the most dominant users of talc. It is also used as lubricants in leather making, laboratory table tops, switch boards, toilet powder and for removing grease from cloth.

Beneficiation is a variety of processes whereby extracted ore from mining is separated into mineral and gangue, the former suitable for further processing or direct use.

Talc’s potential applications are virtually unlimited. Through beneficiation, talc can be processed into different grades suitable for use as fillers in different industries which includes pharmaceuticals, Industrial, Cosmetics etc

Talc beneficiation usually uses hand picking, photoelectric picking, electrostatic dressing, flotation, dry or wet magnetic separation, dry grinding air,dry and wet grinding in mineral beneficiation, process crusher dry and wet grinding in mineral beneficiation.

Talc enjoys a ready made market in Nigeria. In spite of the high national demand which is over 70,000 tonnes per annum, there are a few talc processing industry in the country producing about 15,000 tonnes per annum.

Thus, over 90 % of the talc used in Nigerian industries is imported. However, if the Nigeria talc is exploited and processed properly, it would not only satisfy the local demand, but would also be ready for export because of the abundant reserves in the country.
