Geology, market and supply chain of niobium and …

2014-9-9 · Tantalum (Ta) and niobium (Nb) are essential metals in modern society. Their use in corrosion prevention, micro-electronics, specialty alloys and high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel earns them a strategic designation in most industrialised countries. The Ta market is unstable due in part to historic influx of ''conflict'' columbite-tantalite concentrate, or "Coltan," that caused Ta ...

Textural and mineral-chemistry constraints on columbite ...

Dissolution textures resulting from the corrosion of columbite and tantalite rims, in particular, are common. The Mn/(Mn + Fe) ratio varies between 0.33 and 0.97 and the Ta/(Ta + Nb) ratio between 0.07 and 0.93. Wodginite and microlite formed as late replacements of CGM and occur associated with tantalite and cassiterite.

Chemical Fact Sheet: Tantalum | EVISA''s Links Database

The early investigators only isolated the impure metal. The first relatively pure ductile tantalum was produced by von Bolton in 1903. Tantalum occurs principally in the mineral columbite-tantalite (Fe, Mn)(Nb, Ta)2O6. Tantalum ores are found in Australia, Brazil, Mozambique, Thailand, Portugal, Nigeria, Zaire, and Canada.

Textural and mineral-chemistry constraints on columbite ...

Many of the CGM exhibit corrosion or dissolution with sponge-like textures that affect the columbite rims, and the tantalite rims in particular. This corrosion destroys columbite that is replaced by tantalite. Similar dissolution textures are evident in other Nb-Ta minerals from pegmatites (e.g. Wise and Brown, 2010; Dill et …
