Why Are Minerals Important.

The metals and minerals we rely on in our everyday life is staggering. If you really take a moment to think about it, look around to observe the objects you are surrounded by which are not manufactured by plant-based resources. From the cement you walk on to the screen you are reading; our world and our way of life depends on the products of modern mining practices.

But what does our future hold for us? Sustainable power, renewable energy, electric vehicles, advanced engineering, and commercial space travel will all rely on an increased source of the materials we already depend on. The mining industry supports our everyday life but also provides the foundations of engineering achievements for the decades to come.

Minerals We Provide.

CALCIUM CARBONATE

Calcium carbonate is a dietary supplement used when the amount of calcium taken in the diet is not enough. Calcium is needed by the body for healthy bones, muscles, nervous system, and heart. Calcium carbonate also is used as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach. It is available with or without a prescription.

TITANIUM DIOXIDE PIGMENT

Titanium dioxide is by far the most suited white pigment to obtain whiteness and hiding power in coatings, inks and plastics. This is because it has an extremely high refractive index and it does not absorb visible light. TiO2 is also readily available as particles with the right size and the right shape (more or less spherical) as well as with a variety of post-treatments.
 

TALC MINERAL

Talc, or talcum, is a clay mineral, composed of hydrated magnesium silicate with the chemical formula Mg3Si4O10(OH)2. Talc in powdered form, often combined with corn starch, is used as baby powder. This mineral is used as a thickening agent and lubricant. It is an ingredient in ceramics, paint, and roofing material.

KAOLIN

Kaolin is a type of clay found in nature. It is sometimes used to make medicine. It is also used as a filler in tablets. Kaolin is used to stop bleeding and for a condition that involves swelling and sores in the mouth (oral mucositis).

SILICA FLOUR

Silica flour is used as an abrasive additive in soaps, skin care products, toothpastes, and paints, and as a filler in a number of pharmaceuticals. It also is used in foundry work and in glass, ceramic, porcelain, tile, and clay production.

BENTONITE

Bentonite is a very old clay that has been used as a remedy for many things. The fine powder forms when volcanic ash ages. It's named after Fort Benton, WY, which has a lot of it. But it's found all over the world. It's also known as Montmorillonite clay after a region in France with a large deposit.

BARIUM SULPHATE

Barium sulfate (or sulphate) is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula BaSO4. It is a white crystalline solid that is odorless and insoluble in water. It occurs as the mineral barite, which is the main commercial source of barium and materials prepared from it.
