General Mineral Mining Market Global Briefing 2017 – Research and Markets

The “General
Mineral Mining Market Global Briefing 2017” report has been
added to Research and Markets’ offering.

The general mineral mining industry includes establishments involved in
mining construction sand and gravel, industrial sand, kaolin and ball
clay, clay and ceramic and refractory minerals. This market also
includes companies carrying out potash, soda and borate mineral,
phosphate rock, and other chemical and fertilizer minerals mining.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the general mineral mining market
in 2016, accounting for around 37% of the market. This was mainly due to
large market for chemical and fertilizers in the region, thereby driving
extraction of mineral pigments, potash, sulfur and rock salt mining.
North America was the second largest region accounting for around 22% of
the market. Eastern Europe was the seventh largest region accounting for
around 4% of the market.

Companies involved in potash mining are increasingly using potash
solution mining techniques to improve extraction efficiency and increase
profitability. Potash solution mining involves boring injection and
recovery wells into the ground. A heated brine solution is injected into
the deposit to dissolve the potash salts. The dissolved salts are then
extracted to the surface and potash is separated and conditioned.
Conventional mining of potash is associated with technical problems and
additional costs. Solution mining results in a lower environmental
footprint for the operating facilities, lower technical risks, higher
extract ratio and faster lead time and lower investment costs than
conventional mining process. Companies such as Potash Corporation of
Saskatchewan, Mosaic, Intrepid Potash, and Western Potash are operating
using potash solution mining technique in various mining projects.
