11.28 Vermiculite Processing

Vermiculite ore is mined using open-pit methods. Beneficiation includes screening, flotation, drying in rotary or fluid bed dryers, and expansion by exposure to high heat. All mined vermiculite is dried and sized at the mine site prior to exfoliation. Crude Ore Processing Figure 11.28-1 is a process flow diagram for vermiculite processing

What is Vermiculite? The Vermiculite Association

Vermiculite is mined using open cast mining techniques where the ore is separated from other minerals and then screened or classified into several basic particle sizes. Every care is taken in mining operations to minimize the impact on the environment and to restore land to its natural condition when mining ends.

Vermiculite Wikipedia

Vermiculite is a hydrous phyllosilicate mineral which undergoes significant expansion when heated. Exfoliation occurs when the mineral is heated sufficiently, and commercial furnaces can routinely produce this effect. Vermiculite forms by the weathering or hydrothermal alteration of biotite or phlogopite. Large commercial vermiculite mines currently exist in the United States of America
