Lead (Pb) is next in abundance with 120 to 150 lead-bearings minerals known. The commonest lead ore is the sulphide galena (PbS). Other forms are known but don’t often occur as ore minerals. An important lead mineral worth mentioning is vanadinite (Pb5(VO4)3Cl). This lead mineral is sought, not for its lead but for the strategic metal, vanadium.
Availability and Uses : It is estimated that Nigeria has over 10,000,000 tons of lead ore deposit and it is an important component in car battery production. The prospect of global economy is promising, so the automotive industry which is closely related to the lead market, is witnessing growth thereby creating more demands for the product. Best quality Lead Ore is available ranging from 30 % to 75 % Lead content at a very competitive price.
