Welcome to Minjingu
As part of the privatization program by the Government of Tanzania, Minjingu mines along with its beneficiation plant was acquired in 2001. The mines have a proven 10 million tons deposit of Rock Phosphates that are mined at 29% – 30% P2 O5.
The Rock Beneficiation Plant on the mines has a capacity of 100,000 tons per annum and converts naturally occurring Phosphate in a powder form to a Beneficiated Rock Phosphate.
Phosphates are one of the three major nutrients for crop production. The Minjingu Rock Phosphate, due to its unique composition, has proven to be very beneficial to cash crops like coffee, tea, tobacco, and sugarcane, particularly in the acidic soils found in large parts of Tanzania.
Mining & Beneficiation
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.
Why Choose Minjingu?
Much more than just Phosphate Fertilizer
Minjingu Organic Hyper Phosphate+ is a high grade and reactive Natural Fertilizer. Unlike chemical phosphate fertilizers that mostly contain only the P element, Minjingu Organic Hyper phosphate+ has many desirable features. It is rich in minerals such as Silica and Calcium, ensures all year round P availability, and encourages beneficial soil microorganism population growth. More productive soil is the result of using Organic phosphate.
Minjingu Organic Hyper Phosphate+ has a quick and slow release P component, which is vital to achieve the maximum harvest. Superphosphate and Rock Phosphate respectively have only a fast or a slow release effect and are ideally used in combination. With Minjingu Organic Hyper phosphate+, farmers can rest assured that crops will always have enough P supply to ensure a maximum harvest.
Minjingu Organic Hyper Phosphate+ is rich in secondary as well as micronutrients. Micronutrients are just as essential as macronutrients (NPK), but are needed in smaller quantities. Calcium gives a liming effect and reduces soil acidity while Silica helps increase plant strengths against pests and diseases.
Minjingu Organic Hyper phosphate+ is also a good soil conditioner. Healthy soil contains more than 250,000 types of microorganisms that encourage the absorption of fertilizers. Long-term exposure to chemical fertilizers prompts farmers to question the reasons for decreases in yearly harvests especially when more and more NPK fertilizers are applied. As a result, many farmers are now paying extra money on organic substances to encourage microorganism growth to maintain soil quality.
High Grade and Reactive Natural Fertilizer
Quick and Slow Release P Component
A Healthy and Good Soil Conditioner
Rich in Secondary and Micronutrients
Minjingu currently exports the Beneficiated Rock Phosphate to South Africa, Zambia, Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda. The mine recently added a Granulizer Plant that adds value by converting the Beneficiated Rock Phosphate into a ready to use Fertilizer. The Plant will produce 30,000 tons of Fertilizer annually.
