Phosphate Beneficiation Process

Large scale mining and processing of phosphate is essential for operating at a profit. In the Florida area, Phosphate Beneficiation by flotation unlocked the door to vast tonnages of ore which in the past could not be recovered by conventional washing methods which saved only the coarser pebble phosphate. Many of the areas now being mined contain very little or no pebble phosphate, so the

Florida Phosphate Mining History

Digging the phosphate out of the ground is only one step of the mining process. Phosphate comes out of the ground as part of a matrix, which is a mix of the phosphate, sand and clay. The phosphate must be separated from the sand and clay it has melded with in the ground over millions of years.

Phosphate Florida Department of Environmental Protection

At the beneficiation plant, the phosphate is separated from the sand and clay. The phosphate is sent by rail to a separate chemical processing plant where it is processed for use in fertilizer and other products. The chemical processing is done at separate facilities that are not regulated by the Mining and Mitigation Program.

An Overview of Phosphate Mining and Reclamation in Florida

Phosphate mining in Florida is a strip-mining process. Overburden, the layers of material above the phosphate, is removed to expose the phosphate reserve (matrix). Before mining, exploratory cores are taken to measure the depth of the overburden and the thickness of the phosphate matrix. This coring process is used to determine where mining
