Mexico Minerals Exploitation and Processing Line

Mexico has rich mineral resources. It is one of the most important mining producing countries in the world. In Mexico, there are some minerals have their own unique features, such as obsidian, fire opal and agate. Now I will introduce their processing line for you.

Introduction of Mexico

Mexico is located in North America, and the capital of it is Mexico City. Mexico is adjacent with United States in north, Guatemala and Belize in southeast. Its two sides are surrounded by sea, east of the Gulf of Mexico, west of the Pacific Ocean. Its area is 1,970,000 square kilometers. Mexico is a free economy market, and it has modernization industry and agriculture, the proportion of private economy has also increased significantly in recent years. Mexico is one of the large economy countries of Latin America. Its industry and agriculture are more developed. Its industrial sectors are complete, industry and mining account for 30% of GDP.

Mineral Resource of Mexico

Mexico is one of the world's major mining producers, it has rich mineral resources. The reserves of silver, graphite and other resources rank top few of the world. Gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc and other 15 kinds of mineral reserves are rich in Mexico. Other mineral resources are also very rich, such as arsenic, bismuth, mercury, cadmium, antimony, apatite, lapis lazuli, graphite, sulfur, fluorite, barite, fluorite, etc. Silver production ranks first in the world for many years. So Mexico is known as the "Silver Kingdom". The productions of bismuth, cadmium, mercury rank second in the world. While barite, antimony productions rank third in the world.

Mexico Minerals Exploitation

The minerals exploitation in Mexico developed rapidly in recent years. Different minerals have different processing methods. But it always includes crushing, screening and beneficiation. First of all, we need transport the raw ores to the jaw crusher evenly and continuously by vibrating feeder for primary crushing. Then, send the crushed ores to cone crusher or impact crusher for secondary crushing. In the whole plant, belt conveyor is used to transport materials. It can improve the efficiency and degree of automation greatly. Vibrating screen is used to separate the materials into different sizes. If the size of particle meets the requirement, it will be transported to beneficiation equipment. While the rest part will be send to cone crusher or impact crusher for re-crushing. In this way, it forms a circle processing line.

Except some of the common ores, there are some unique minerals in Mexico, and they have their own features. Now I will introduce some of them to you.
Obsidian is the National Stone of Mexico. It is also known as natural glass, and it is a common black gem. The colors of obsidian are transparent, black, there may be all monochrome, striped or spotted. The main producers are the United States, Japan and Indonesia.

Fire opal is also a gem. It will diffract and scatter into the color spectrum when white light shots on it. Fire opal has many different colors, such as yellow, orange or bright red, it is almost transparent. The main origin of fire opal is Mexico, and other origins are Guatemala, Honduras, the United States and Australia.

Fire agate is mainly produced in northern Mexico. About tens of millions of years ago, the intense volcanic activity took place in northern Mexico and the southwestern region of the United States, thus formed the unique Mexican Fire Agate. Although in the southwest of United States have produced, but the best quality fire agate is still produced in Mexico.
These minerals have their own features, but the raw ores processing methods are almost the same. If you want to know more professional suggestion, please contact us, we will help you build a large capacity and efficient ore processing line.
