Mining in Malawi

AbstractIntroductionRare Earths GroupsExploration For Rare Earths in MalawiMineral Resources of Malawi CarbonatitesConclusionReferencesMalawi carbonatites host rare earths minerals (mainly monazite, synchysite and bastnaesite), strontianite and apatite (Table 2). Accessory minerals may include fluorite, manganese, pyrochlore and barite. These minerals are common at Kangankunde, Tundulu and Songwe. Recent studies have shown that even fenites and breccia contain valuable heavy rare earths emanating from late stage hydrothermal activities. Table 2: Minerals Resources of Malawi Carbonatites

Rare Earths Statistics and Information

The principal economic sources of rare earths are the minerals bastnasite, monazite, and loparite and the lateritic ion-adsorption clays. The rare earths are a relatively abundant group of 17 elements composed of scandium, yttrium, and the lanthanides. The elements range in crustal abundance from cerium, the 25th most abundant element of the 78 common elements in the Earth's

Zirconolite, chevkinite and other rare earth minerals from ...

Five rare earth-bearing minerals found in rocks of the Chilwa Alkaline Province, Malawi, are described. Zirconolite, occurring in nepheline syenite, is unusual in being optically zoned, and microprobe analyses indicate a correlation of this zoning with variations in Si, Ca, Sr, Th, U, Fe, Nb and probably water; it is argued that this zoning is a hydration effect.
