Overview of South Africa's Phosphate Fertiliser Industry

phosphate in the form of apatite are exploited in South Africa, Brazil, Russia, Finland and Zimbabwe. The agricultural sector for the production of fertilisers is the principal consumer of phosphate rock, accounting for 80-85 percent of total production. The South African fertiliser industry is currently in a mature stage.

The role of polyoxyethylene alkyl ethers in apatite

1994-11-1  Keywords Apatite flotation, polyoxyethylene alkyl ethers, latty acid, hard water, calcite depression. INTRODUCTION Most of the phosphate processed in South Africa originates from the alkaline igneous complex at Phalaborwa in the nortlaeastern Transvaal.

Trace-element content and partitioning in calcite

A carbonatite sample from Phalaborwa, South Africa, consists of apatite, magnetite and a calcite-dolomite ‘perthite’ which is interpreted as being due to exsolution of dolomite from a high-Mg calcite precursor. Carbon and oxygen isotope data indicate that the carbonates are equilibrated. In situ ion-microprobe analyses for Fe,

Two types of Phosphates Organic Phosphate Fertilizer

2020-9-24  As the present world consumption of rock phosphate is approximately 90 million tons per annum, there are enough deposits for several millenniums. At present, approximately 1.5 million tons per annum are used in South Africa, while the mining of rock phosphate for domestic use as well as for export is between 2.9 and 315 million tons per annum.
