Namibia Uranium Mine Process Brief Introduction

The Rossing Uranium mine is located 70km north-east of Swakopmund in Namibia, Africa. It is the fifth largest producer of uranium in the world and accounts for about 8% of the world’s uranium oxide production. The licence area of the mine is 180km2 of which 20km2 are used for mining, waste disposal and processing.

The Rossing Uranium mine is a low grade Alaskite open pit mine (SJ pit) which is 3.5km long and 345m deep. Conventional methods including drilling, blasting, loading and hauling are used for mining uranium from the open pit.

The activities of uranium ore processing include extraction of uranium from the mined rock, production of uranium oxide, and secure packing and shipment of the processed uranium. The mined ore is delivered to primary crushers by haul trucks and then by conveyor to the coarse ore stockpile. The process continues until the particles become smaller than 19mm. Wet grinding, using four rod mills with a diameter of 4.3m, are used to crush the ore to the level of mud.

As for now, NFLG has offered primary crushers and secondary crushers for the uranium ore crushing. You can purchase our jaw crusher as primary crusher and cone crushers as secondary crushers.

Namibia Mining

Namibia was among the world’s premier producers of gem diamonds, and the mining industry accounted for 11% of GDP and 50% of foreign exchange earnings, and was the largest private-sector area of employment. The most valuable minerals were diamonds, uranium, copper, silver, lead, zinc, gold, pyrite, and salt. Diamonds were mainly recovered from a 96 km stretch along the coastline north of the Orange River; 1.54 million carats of gem diamond were produced in 2000. Also produced in 2000 were columbium, tantalum, tin, cement, fluorspar, gypsum, semiprecious stones (agate, amethyst, garnet, pietersite, rose quartz, sodalite, and tourmaline), granite, marble, sulfur (pyrite concentrate), and wollastonite.

Mine copper output in 2000 was 5,070 tons (copper content), following no output in 1999, and 17,879 in 1997; mine lead, 12,115 tons (metal content); zinc concentrate, 40,266 tons (metal content); and salt, 381,670 tons. Rössing Uranium, owned by Rio Tinto-Zinc, of the UK, produced uranium oxide at the world’s largest opencast uranium mine, at Swakopmund. Coal has been discovered in southeastern Namibia. Mineral exports accounted for one-half of total export value. In the period 1996–2000, the following minerals experienced one or more years of no output: antimony, arsenic, copper, manganese, industrial diamond, gypsum, lithium minerals (amblygonite, lepidolite, and petalite), several semiprecious gemstones (amethyst, chrysocolla, garnet, crystal quartz, pietersite, rose quartz, sodalite, and tourmaline), and sulfur.

500TPH ~ 600TPH Crushing Product line

Here we recommend that you can consider the crushing plant with capacity between 500 tph and 600 tph. In this project, only qualified crushed materials can get through vibrating screen and become finished products. Just click to see detail information about the plant.

NFLG has designed this 500-600 TPH stone crushing plant on the base of its 30 years’ experience in manufacturing mining and construction equipments. It is suitable for crushing bulk materials at fixed open-bit quarries or mines. This type of plant is equipped with a jaw crusher for primary crushing and two cone crushers for secondary crushing. Accordingly, you will need two vibrating screens after the two cone crushers for product separation. the output size is 0-8mm, 8-15mm,and 15-26mm.
