At present, we have a glauberite mine with sodium sulfate located at Heng County at the PRC. The product of sodium sulfate is extensive with a wide range of applications, from daily necessities to medical using vast quantities.
Our products can be categorized into two major groups:
The first category is salt for the chemical industry, including sodium sulfate, sodium sulfide, barium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and other chemical raw materials, with sodium sulfate as the main product. The others such as sodium sulfide, barium sulfate and magnesium sulfate, require further processing. The second category is daily detergents, including washing powder, soap, liquid cleanser, toothpaste, etc.
Apart from traditional chemical industry usage, sodium sulfate can be used in many other applications. Our company also produces different types of sodium sulfate for food and medicinal use. Special types of sodium sulfate include superfine, neutral, large grain, multicolored, medicinal and high purity, etc.
The mineral resources of the glauberite mine comprises of 219 million tonnes and 17 million tonnes of indicated and inferred resources of sodium sulphate respectively.
Since 2005, the company has continually obtained mining rights to extract from an area covering 173.84 square kilometers at a region 50 km from the region capital Copiapo in Chile. In recent years, through the exploration of some areas (about 28 sq km) and the verification of multiple drillings of length exceeding 10,000 meters, 160,000 tons of copper oxide ore was obtained. After further testing of the copper oxide ores, it was concluded that the leaching effect of oxidized copper ores in mining area is good, with a ratio over 82% and low acidity. The leaching test and the report was issued by the Copiapo mine for the good leaching properties of its oxidized ore.
