How phosphate is mined and processed

2014-4-21 · Most phosphate reserves are from sedimentary rocks. The phosphate forms in the shallow oceans mainly due to bacterial activity, but only when several conditions are met. Their formation is pretty rare! For example, phosphates form only in warm, tropical oceans where there is a cold upwelling next to shore. There needs to be a source of phosphorus. Usually this is an abundance of dead organic matter. (There''s a reason that Florida''s phosphate region is also called the Bone Beds.) Bacteria feed off nutrients from the organic matter and the cold upwelling water and release the phosphorus element from the organic matter. Other bacteria help crystallize that phosphate as a mud. Finally, the right set of processes is needed to concentrate the phosphate into one layer. This can be a combination of physical processes (wave erosion) and biological processes (benthic organisms eating and then excreting phosphate …
