According to south African mining bureau statistics, proven reserves of mineral resources in 2007 are: 36000 tons of gold (40.1% of the world's total reserves, similarly hereinafter), 70000 tons of platinum group metals (87.7%), 4 billion tons of manganese (80%), 12 million tons of vanadium (32%), vermiculite (40%) of 80 million tons, 5.5 billion tons of chromium (72. 4%), 341000 tons of uranium (7.2%), 27.981 billion tons of coal (6.1%), 1.5 billion tons of iron ore (0.9%), titanium 244 million tons (16.9%), 14 million tons of zirconium (19.4%), fluorspar 80 million tons (16.7%), phosphate, 2.5 billion tons (5.0%), 200000 tons (4.7%), antimony lead 3 million tons (2.0%), 15 million tons of zinc (3.3%) and 13 million tons of copper (1.4%).
South Africa is one of the five biggest mining countries in the world. Mining, manufacturing, and agriculture are the three economic pillars in SouthAfrica. South Africa is famous for abundant mineral resources in the world. Proven reserves of minerals have more than 70 kinds. Gold, platinum group metals, manganese, vanadium, chromium and silicon aluminate reserves rank the first in the world. among these, gold reserves account for 60% in the world, vermiculite, zirconium, titanium and fluorspar rank the second; phosphate and antimony is in the fourth; uranium and lead keep in the fifth; coal and zinc are eighth and iron ore in the ninth, copper in 14th.
Phosphate is one of the natural ingredients of almost all food. As the important function of food ingredients and additives, it is widely used in food processing. It is an important material in inorganic chemistry, biological chemistry and biological geochemistry. Naturally phosphate exists in the form of phosphate rock (including calcium phosphate). Phosphate rock reacting with sulfuric acid can generate calcium hydrogen phosphate and calcium sulfate, which can be absorbed by the plant. Then phosphate can be obtained in that way.
As for the most important natural ingredients of almost all food, this accelerates the development of phosphate processing in SouthAfrica. Phosphate processing line is very popular in South Africa. In the phosphate processing line, there are many mining machines at demands, such as cone crusher, impact crusher, jaw crusher, grinding machines as well as some other ancillary equipment. All these machines are produced by shanghai sbm, a professional manufacturer and supplier of mining equipment in the world. The main products of shanghai sbm are crusher and grinding machines.
There are many different types of crusher, such as pf series impact crusher, pfw series impact crusher, cs cone crusher, hammer crusher, pe series jaw crusher and pew series jaw crusher and so on. Clients can choose the suitable crushers according to the different required size of final products and the hardness of the raw materials. For the grinding machines, there are several different types as well, such as ultrafine grinding machines, coarse grinding machines and medium grinding machines and so on. In a reasonable processing plant, it is not enough to just be equipped with the main machines, ancillary equipment is needed as well, such as vibrating feeder, belt conveyor and so on. Clients can take some advices from experts about how to design a reasonable processing plant to get the maximum profit and the minimum costs.
