      Animals get phosphate from their food. The bulk of the phosphate we mine – about 90% – is used to produce phosphate fertilizers. Another 5% is used to make animal feed supplements. The remaining 5% goes into making a variety of products from soft drinks to toothpaste to metal coatings. Phosphate is a limited resource that cannot be replaced. Phosphorus is a chemical element with the symbol P and atomic number Elemental phosphorus exists in two major forms, white phosphorus and red phosphorus, but because it is highly reactive, phosphorus is never found as a free element on has a concentration in the Earth's crust of about one gram per kilogram (compare copper at about grams).Pronunciation: /ˈfɒsfərəs/ ​(FOS-fər-əs).

      The western phosphate field produced about 15 percent, in , of the nation's domestically consumed phosphate rock and contains an estimated 58 percent of the nation's indicated phosphate reserves. The central portion of the western phosphate field, which contains the Dry Valley area of southeastern Idaho, encompasses the greatest amount of mineable phosphate Author: James Simon Spalding. Idaho contains million acres, million (67 pct) of which is federal mineral land. About 7 million acres of this land is within KMDA's that host medium- to high-value locatable mineral deposits; 36 pct of this land is available, 27 pct is slightly to moderately restricted, and 37 pct is severely restricted or unavailable.

      Search Tips. Phrase Searching You can use double quotes to search for a series of words in a particular order. For example, "World war II" (with quotes) will give more precise results than World war II (without quotes). Wildcard Searching If you want to search for multiple variations of a word, you can substitute a special symbol (called a "wildcard") for one or more letters. Kirkham, V. R.

Get this from a library. Phosphate deposits of Idaho and their relation to the world supply. [Virgil R D Kirkham]. Chemical properties. The phosphate ion has a molar mass of g/mol, and consists of a central phosphorus atom surrounded by four oxygen atoms in a tetrahedral arrangement.

It is the conjugate base of the hydrogen phosphate ion H(PO 4) 2−, which in turn is the conjugate base of the dihydrogen phosphate ion H 2 (PO 4) −, which in turn is the conjugate base of Beilstein Reference: Southeast Idaho Phosphate Mining Southeastern Idaho is a major phosphate-producing region, and phosphate mining has been an important industry in the area since the early 20th century.

The process of mining phosphate ore from the earth generated open pits and piles of overburden materials covering the phosphate ore.

The data presented give a good understanding of the distribution, nature and origin of phosphate deposits. The book is an important contribution to the scientific understanding of phosphate deposits, as well as a valuable aid to the search for an exploitation of Format: Paperback.

An inventory of more than 1, world phosphate mines, deposits, and occurrences was compiled from smaller data sets collected as part of multiple research efforts by Carlotta Chernoff, University of Arizona, and Greta Orris, U.S.

G.J. Orris and C.B. Chernoff compiled the data on world phosphate deposits from previously published compilations, new published sources, "gray" literature, company internet sites, and other sources.

Orris, Greta. The IAEA’s World Distribution of Uranium Deposits (UDEPO, IAEA, ) database tabulates 14 Mt, though the Red Book tabulates only Mt, while suggesting that the 22 Mt may be realistic.

With uranium as a minor byproduct of phosphates, the potential supply is tied to the economics of phosphate production, coupled with the environmental. Phosphate Deposits of the World: Volume 2, Phosphate Rock Resources by Arthur J.

Deposits of phosphate minerals are present throughout much of the United States and the world. In many places, the phosphate deposits are not economically accessible. Much of the Atlantic Coastal Plain contains recoverable amounts of phosphate deposits; however Floridas geological processes created two regions where deposits of the phosphate.

Phosphate: A Strategic Mineral. The United States is the world's leading producer of phosphate rock. Our nation's phosphate deposits have long been recognized as a valuable natural resource.

The U.S. receives significant revenue from exporting the mineral overseas, mostly to China. The deposits found in the "Bone Valley" area of Central Florida. Index map of important phosphate deposits of southeastern Idaho and adjoining parts of Wyoming and Utah Open-File Report By: U.S.

Geological SurveyAuthor: U.S. Geological Survey. Marine sedimentary phosphate deposits are particularly suited to study aspects of the phosphorus cycle, because, in the case of ubiquity, their origin may result from a general acceleration of the global phosphorus cycle.

Sources of sedimentary phosphate are microbial breakdown of buried organic matter and redox-driven phosphate desorption from Cited by: This report is the most complete compilation of phosphate mines, deposits, and occurrences known. However, it is highly likely that there are additional phosphate sites that are not included.

In addition, data for many of the sites are incomplete. Determination of latitudes and longitudes for some sites were impossible given the available : Chernoff, Carlotta B.

Orris, Greta. Uranium deposits worldwide are grouped into 15 major types based on their geological setting. The most recent geological classification has been defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in and has been adopted in the Red Book since The deposit types have fundamental characteristics and recognition criteria and in that.

The critical role of rare earth elements (REEs), particularly heavy REEs (HREEs), in high-tech industries has created a surge in demand that is quickly outstripping known global supply and has triggered a worldwide scramble to discover new sources.
