Barite is a non-metal mineral barium sulfate (BaSO4) as main component, the hardness is small, Mohs hardness is 3 to 3.5 mesh.Barite is the most commonly found ore in the barium category, which is often used in the production of barium compounds, the ingredient of which is barium sulphate. Barite is a very important non-metallic mineral raw material. And it can be found in many industries, such as the weighting agent for drilling mud, the pigments of lithopone, barite in the packing industry, and the mineralizer in the cement industry. Barite deposits can be divided into the layered type deposit, vein type deposit, transformed vein type deposit and accumulation type deposits. Barite mining includes open-pit mining and underground mining with the former being the most popular method. In open-pit mining, we usually quarry barites at residual talus deposits and outcrops and shallow depth ore deposits. In underground mining, we usually quarry barites through the shrinkage method, filling method and stage caving method. The mining equipment used in underground mining consists of ore trucks, inclined shaft hoist, local exhaust ventilation fan and underground support. Machines used in open-pit mining include loaders and dump trucks.
