Most barite is mined from layers of sedimentary rock which formed when barite precipitated onto the bottom of the ocean. Some smaller mines utilize barite from veins, which formed when barium sulfate was precipitated from hot subterranean waters. In some cases, barite is a by-product of mining lead, zinc, silver, or other metal ores.
Barite is mined almost exclusively in surface operations. The main surface mining methods used to extract barite ore are open-pit and open-cut methods. However, the underground mining method will be applied when the barite deposit is deep under the surface.
Barite mining operations may include quarrying, crushing, screening, size classification, material handling etc. Zenith has been specialized in mining technology for long history. We developed complete range of barite mining equipment for sale, mainly including quarry plant, jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, vibrating screen, belt conveyor, ball mill, vertical roller mill, separation machine etc.
We design cost-effective mining solution according specific conditions. If you are intend to set a a mine or quarry, please feel free to contact us for consulting service or equipment information.
The role of small scale mining worldwide, both in developed and developing countries, should not be underestimated. It must be taken into consideration that the definition "small-scale mining" varies greatly from country to country. There are many small scale barite mining operation all over the world, which can't be afford large scale mining equipment. According to this problem, Zenith provides high quality small scale barite extraction plant with low price, and relatively high production capacity. Please chat online with us for more information.
