Occurrence and Industrial Properties of Some Barite

May 15, 2012The Benue Trough of Nigeria hosts more than eleven barite fields (Fig. 1) that are being scavenged by small-scale and artisanal miners. Despite the earlier reports on the presence of these barite fields (e.g., Farrington 1952 ), their field characteristics, grade, dimensions, and abundance are not well known and documented.

Barite as an industrial mineral in Nigeria: occurrence

Barite occurrence in Nigeria is majorly in veins and cavities and it occurs in large deposits in the Benue Trough. It exists along with gangue minerals. It is found in nine states in the country with an estimated reserve of 22,298,843 tonnes on an average vein depth of 20 m and a specific gravity of 4.2.

Jun 01, 2018Oden (2012) identified two major modes of baryte occurrence as the vein/cavity filling and stratiform types within the Benue Trough, with the former being the most common type. The origin of baryte in the Benue Trough has been a subject of intense controversy.
