Tantalum Mineral Processing

Tantalum Processing TIC

Processing: extraction and refining. The extraction and refining of tantalum, including the separation from niobium in these various tantalum-containing mineral concentrates, is generally accomplished by treating the ores with a mixture of hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids at elevated temperatures. This causes the tantalum and niobium values to ...

Dec 31, 2018  Tantalum was mined for many years until its closure in 2012 by previous owner GAM. Tantalum and lithium are both located within a series of mostly flat to shallow-dipping pegmatites. Mineral Resources purchased the Wodgina deposit, tenements and associated infrastructure from GAM in late 2016, with GAM retaining the tantalum rights.
