Singh, Gurdial and Dey, M L and Dhananjayan, N (1985) Chemical Beneficiation of Magnesite. In: Proceedings of National Seminar on Mineral Processing and IX Annual Technical Convention of Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, 11th & 12th March 1985, National Metallurgical Laboratory(CSIR) Jamshedpur.



Magnesite is an important refractory mineral used in the manufacture of basic refractories. The total demand(1) for various kinds of basic refractories for 1984-85 has been estimated to be 4,68,000 tonnes per annum which is estimated to increase to 5,09,000 tonnes per annum by 1989-90. India has known reserves of 13.6 million tonnes of magnesite. Magnesite occurs mainly in Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Rajasthan. The all-India production of magnesite in 1981 was 4,63,000 tonnes. Tamil Nadu prod-uces nearly 76% of the all-India production followed by Uttar Pradesh with 21 °,10.The remaining 3% of the produ-ction comes from Karnataka and Rajasthan.
