Mining and processing. Bentonite is a raw material present in many countries and mined in open pit quarries. Bentonite deposits are most often quite large, with lenticular beds, only a few meters deep. Bentonite production process features ore mining, sodium activation if required -, drying, and milling. Sodium activation is performed to convert calcium bentonite to sodium bentonite, in
Bentonite Clay has been used as a low cost adsorbent to assist with cost effective removal of metals and organic compounds from wastewaters. The calcium bentonite clays have a high capacity to bind metal ions dissolved in solution. This adsorption, the binding of chemicals to clay surfaces, is a rapid process and the binding is strong.
Clariant currently operates 40 bentonite mines, so our customers can rest assured that supply is secured and that mining is fully compliant with international, national, regional and local regulations. Our application development department, staffed with chemists and scientists experienced in our customers’ applications, tests and approves the
Bentonite is a clay generated frequently from the alteration of volcanic ash, consisting predominantly of smectite minerals, usually montmorillonite. Other smectite group minerals include hectorite, saponite, beidelite and nontronite. Smectites are clay minerals, i.e. they consist of individual crystallites the majority of which are <2µm in largest dimension. Smectite crystallites themselves are
Sodium bentonite is a natural clay which has the characteristic of swelling many times its dry size when it becomes wet. When bentonite is applied in a layer of porous soil or mixed with a porous soil, and moistened with water, it forms an impermeable layer. When properly applied, bentonite does not affect the water or wildlife.
It is used with synthetic materials to create geosynthetic clay liners (GCL), in slurry walls or cut-off walls as a barrier to prevent seepage or migration of groundwater that has been contaminated by toxic materials or industrial waste. Bentonite provides backfill for ionic electrode grounding rods or as anode backfill for corrosion prevention of metal structures.
Currently, mining claims are maintained on 10,000 acres, of which 5,000 acres are patented and owned outright by IMV. An exploration plan is maintained with a rolling 10 year outlook and extensive ore reserves are identified for future production. IMV Nevada mines and processes three types of clays; sepiolite, bentonite, and saponite.

The high-grade calcium bentonite clays have an affinity for fats and hydrocarbons, when fats and oils are bound to the clay they can be rapidly separated from water. Bentonite Clay treatment processes for dispersed or emulsified fats, oils and hydrocarbons utilise the affinity of clays for these oils and fats and modern chemistry and engineering to separate the clay/oil complex from water.
A method for drying, curing and mining bentonite clay in a clay pit wherein that overburden of non-clay material which may exist is removed and the surface of the bentonite ore body is tilled to loosen or break up a tier of the bentonite to expose it to the natural drying and curing effects of the atmosphere, the dried and cured tier of bentonite is removed thus exposing another tier of

Bentonite (/ ˈ b ɛ n t ə n ʌ ɪ t /) is an absorbent swelling clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite.It usually forms from weathering of volcanic ash in seawater, which converts the volcanic glass present in the ash to clay minerals. Bentonite beds are white or pale blue or green in fresh exposures, turning to a cream color and then yellow, red, or brown as the exposure is weathered
Problems like acid mine drainage are relatively common and persistent problems facing the mining sector. The groundwater near one coal mine in Nigeria had tested positive for iron concentrations in the ca. 1,300 mg L-1 range of iron, at which levels toxicity is a problem. Using a combined coal fly ash, anthracite and bentonite clay regime, these levels were brought down significantly(13).

Bentonite clay has applications in a wide range of industries like Agriculture, Mining, Food Processing, Fabrication and even natural beauty treatments! About Us "I prefer to use Bentonite Clay rather than kaolin clays because it has greater water retention capacity and a higher CEC (cation exchange capacity) resulting in higher fertiliser retention. Bentonite clay added with organic matter
