Geology, market and supply chain of niobium and tantalum—a ...

Tantalum (Ta) and niobium (Nb) are essential metals in modern society. Their use in corrosion prevention, micro-electronics, specialty alloys and high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel earns them a strategic designation in most industrialised countries. The Ta market is unstable due in part to historic influx of `conflict'' columbite-tantalite concentrate, or "Coltan," that caused Ta mines in ...

TANTALITE (Iron Manganese Tantalum Niobium Oxide)

Tantalite is the more tantalum rich end member and columbite is the more niobium rich end member. Niobium had been called columbium hence the name columbite. Tantalite''s greatest difference from columbite is its much greater specific gravity, 8.0+ compared to columbite''s 5.2. Other properties that vary slightly are color, transparency and streak.

Economic Geology of Niobium and Tantalum

Note that pure niobite and tantalite are unknown in nature; they are theoretical end members of a solid solution series called columbite group minerals (CGM), or short, columbites. Typically, CGM form the recoverable part of a large number of minor Ta Nb oxides (TNO) in the ore (Melcher et al. 2015).
