Lime in the Mining Industry
The world's ability to support its population is sustained by the many products provided by the mining and metals industry. Mined materials are needed to build roads, hospitals, automobiles and houses, to make computers and satellites, generate electricity and provide the many other goods and services that consumers enjoy daily.
Consider a world without advanced manufacturing, agriculture or mass-scale energy production.
Virtually all of our needs must be dug from the earth, grown in the soil, or taken from the sea.
It is estimated, for instance, that we need to produce more than 40,000 pounds of new minerals a year for every person living in the United States. As the global population grows, increased demand for electronics, medicine, telecommunications, transportation and housing will accelerate the worldwide demand for minerals.
Limestone is one of those minerals. Aside from the many vital uses to which lime itself is put, limestone and quicklime products are used to help extract many of the other minerals the world relies on now and in the future.
Lime and limestone products are used for various mining applications including coagulation, flotation and recovery, milk of lime or lime slurry solutions, tailings treatment, acid mine drainage and storage activities.
Buried beneath the surface of Africa is a wealth of hugely valuable and extractable natural resources, making its mining industry one of the most important in the world. Africa is a major producer of many key mineral commodities, with bountiful reserves of metals and minerals such as gold, diamond, cobalt, bauxite, iron ore, coal, and copper across the continent. Some of the major mining countries in Africa are Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mali, Ghana, Mauritiana, Burkina Faso, Tanzania ...
SHC Group Vietnam has been exporting many shipments of Quicklime and Hydrated Lime to Africa for gold mining, lithium mining for many years.
