red-rain-title-bannerWith several awards for Mine reclamation, Crystalinks Investment and Services continues to be a technological leader in mine design and production. Crystalinks Investment and Services strong financial stability, ingenuity and evolving technologies help us pursue new mining ventures and acquisitions, and make us uniquely qualified to handle mining operations of any size. We also have the license to mine and export the following:

TALC:talc

This is an important mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate which is a widely used substance known as baby powder (aka talcum). Talc is used in many industries such as paper making, plastic, paint and coatings, rubber, food, electric cable, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, ceramics, etc. The exploitation of the vast deposits would therefore satisfy local demand and that for export.

 

 

GYPSUM:GYPSUM

Gypsum is an important input for the production of cement. It is also used for the production of Plaster of Paris (P.O.P) and classroom chalks. A strategy for large-scale mining of gypsum used in the cement industries is urgently required to sustain the existing plants and meet the future expansion. Currently, cement production is put at 8 million tonnes per year while the national requirement is 9.6 million tonnes.

IRON ORE:IRON ORE

Iron Ore are natural minerals in form of rocks, mined and economically extracted into metallic irons used to make pig irons which is the main raw materials that is used to make Steel Irons. Our Ores are of high quality, Containing very high quantities of hemantite or magnetite (greater than 60% iron), and are known as “natural ore“.

LEAD/ZINC:LEAD-ZINC

The single most important commercial use of lead is in the manufacture of lead-acid storage batteries. It is also used in alloys such as fusible metals, antifriction metals, solder, and type metal.  Metallic zinc is used in the production of alloys and in galvanizing to protect steel structures.

It is still present as a chemical additive in rubber and paints.

BENTONITE AND BARYTE:BENTONITE

Barite is the primary, naturally occurring, barium-based mineral.    Barite is also known as baryte, and in Missouri is known as "tiff”.  The primary countries in which commercial deposits of barite are currently found are the United States, China, India and Morocco.  Barite’s high density and chemical inertness make it an ideal mineral for many applications including Drilling industry, Medical industry, plastics, clutch pads, rubber mudflaps, mold release compounds, radiation shielding, television and computer monitors, sound-deadening material in automobiles, traffic cones, brake linings, paint and golf balls.

GOLD:gold

Gold mining is a global business with operations on every continent, except Antarctica, and mines of widely varying types and scale. Gold is not a new story, its qualities  makes it one of the most  coveted metals  in the world.  Its common  applications  are Jewellery making, Finances and Investing, Electronics/Computers, Dentistry/Medicine and Aerospace.

BITUMEN:BITUMEN

Bitumen is an oil based substance. It is a semi-solid hydrocarbon product produced by removing the lighter fractions from heavy crude oil during the refining process. The vast majority of refined bitumen is used in construction: primarily as a constituent of products used in paving and roofing applications. the production of asphalt involves mixing sand, gravel and crushed rock with bitumen, which acts as the binding agent.

COAL:COAL

Coal is a combustible, sedimentary, organic rock, which is composed mainly of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Coal is a fossil fuel and is far more plentiful than oil or gas, with around 110 years of coal remaining worldwide. Not only does coal provide electricity, it is also an essential fuel for steel and cement production, and other industrial activities.

Coal plays a vital role in meeting global energy needs and is critical to infrastructure development - over 40% of the world's electricity and 70% of the world's steel is produced using coal.

GEMSTONES:gemstone

Gemstones mining  has boomed  in various parts of the world  especially in West African  countries.  Some of  these  gemstones  include  sapphire,  ruby,  aquamarine, emerald, tourmaline, topaz, garnet, amethys, zircon, and flourspar which  are  among the world’s best. Good prospects exist in this area for viable investments.

ROCK SALT:ROCK SALT

The national  annual  demand  for  table  salt, Caustic Soda, chlorine,  sodium bicarbonate, sodium Hydrochloric Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide exceeds one million tonnes. A colossal amount  of money is expended  annually to import these chemicals by chemical and processing companies including Tanneries and those in food and beverages, paper and pulp, bottling and oil sector.

KAOLIN:KAOLIN

Kaolin, or China clay, is nearly white in color.  It is distinguished from other industrial clays based on its fine particle size and pure coloring. The primary constituent in kaolin is the mineral kaolinite, a hydrous aluminum silicate formed by the decomposition of minerals such as feldspar. Its mainly used in the paper industry, Kaolin has a variety of other uses in products including paint, rubber, cable insulation, specialty films and fertilizers.

CALCIUM CARBONATE:CALCIUM CARBONATE

Calcium  carbonate  is a chemical  compound with  the  formula CaCO3. It is formed by three main elements: carbon, oxygen and calcium. It is a common substance found in rocks in all parts of the world, Calcium carbonate is the active ingredient in agricultural lime, and is created when calcium ions in hard water react with  carbonate ions creating limescale.

DOLOMITE:dolomite-250x250

Dolomite is an anhydrous carbonate mineral composed of calcium magnesium carbonate,  ideally  CaMg(CO3)2. Dolomite   is used  as an  ornamental stone,  a concrete aggregate, and a source of magnesium  oxide, as well as in the Pidgeon process for  the production of magnesium.  In horuculture, dolomite and dolomitic limestone  are added to soils  and soilless potting mixes as  a  pH  buffer and as  a  magnesium source. Home and container  gardening  are  common  examples  of  this  use. Dolomite  is also  used  as the substrate in marine (saltwater) aquariums to help buffer changes in pH of the water, and it has many more uses.
