Yara’s Siilinjärvi mine has been in continuous operation since 1979. The carbonatite deposit is mined in two large open pits and is subsequently processed on-site to extract apatite from the host rock with tailings stored in a tailings pond. Yara is continuously investing in guaranteeing that their operations are safe, reliable and profitable at the same time. When they noticed that production recovery and quality of the apatite concentrate were sometimes below their target values, they consulted PANalytical for a possible solution of these problems.
