An open cast mines the ore and about 165,000 metric tones of
phosphate ore is extracted per year. About 100,000 metric tones
of the soft Rock Phosphate is beneficiated. The beneficiation
of the phosphate ore to about 30% P2O5 is done mainly through
sun drying, primary sieving and sorting, rapid drying, final
sieving and gravity classification to acceptable standard specification.
