Barite Mineral Deposits in Nigeria with their Locations,

Baryte deposits which occur in Nigeria are mainly seen are mostly found as vein filling in association with lead-zinc lodes, and in the sedimentary rocks of Benue state (lower and middle valley). A recent survey carried out on barite deposits in Nigeria revealed 41,000 tonnes of reserve in the Benue state valley.Despite huge deposit, Nigeria spends millions on barite,,13.05.2021· A document obtained from the Council shows that Nigeria has a reserve estimate of 21,123,919 MT of barite with Nasarawa, Plateau, Taraba, Adamawa, Benue, Plateau, Cross River, Ebonyi and Gombe states having the major deposits. But despite this abundant barite deposit, the country produces only 10,000 tonnes and consumes 23,000 tonnes, leaving a deficit of approximately 13,000 tonnes.Reserve Estimation of Barite Deposits Using Geological and,,Detailed exploration work on barite deposit located at Azara District part of Nasarawa State in northcentral Nigeria was carried out by the Nigerian Mining corporation between 1975 and 1980 and a reserve of about 730, 000 tonnes of barite was established over the area (Maiha, 1996). As at 2004 the Federal Ministry of Solid Minerals Development (FMSMD 2004) has documented only two States with barite mineralization in Nigeria.(PDF) Reserve Estimation of Barite Deposits using,,The Geological Survey of Nigeria has reported that huge commercial deposits of barite are found in Cross Rivers, Benue, Plateau and Nasarawa States (Dominic et al., 2014). The commercial deposit,Geological Characterization of Azara Barite Mineralization,,The barite deposit in Azara occurs as hydrothermal veins within the Cretaceous Keana sandstone of the Middle Benue Trough. The defunct Nigeria Mining Corporation identified eighteen hydrothermal veins (Fatoye et al., 2014). The mineralized veins strike generally in the NE-SW, NW-SE and E-W directions (Chaanda et al., 2010).
