Beryllium Mining Mining Techniques and Processing

2021-3-24  The metal beryllium is mined by its extraction from the beryl ores. It does not occur free in nature. The mining of raw minerals such as bertrandite ore and beryl ore from the Earth's crust and volcanic rocks is required. Apart from beryl, beryllium is found in the mineral bertrandite, has become a major ore of the metal in the recent years.

Beryllium Mining Processing Equipment Flow Chart

2021-6-12  Beryllium (Be) is a silver-white and very light metal. It has a very high melting point at 2349 °F (1287 °C). It is found in nature primarily as bertrandite, which is mined in Utah, or as beryl. The combination of its light weight and high melting point makes it valuable for making metal alloys which are used in electronic and electrical

Sources of Beryllium Metal and Extraction Locations

Today, the extraction of beryllium begins with the mining of raw materials (bertrandite ore and/or beryl ore). Beryl ore is melted in industrial furnaces, solidified and crushed, then treated with sulfuric acid to produce a water-soluble sulfate. Bertrandite ore is crushed, made into slurry and treated with sulfuric acid to form a sulfate.

2012-12-7  Beryllium is an element that is not found by itself. It must be chemically extracted from the minerals beryl and bertrandite by using a chemical process involving reducing beryllium chloride with potassium in a platinum crucible. It can also be obtained through an electrolysis process with a mixture of beryllium chloride and sodium chloride.
