Zinc ore is most commonly found as zinc carbonate (ZnCO3), known as calamine or smithsonite. It generally occurs as rounded, crystalline crusts or granular, honeycombed masses that have a vitreous or pearly luster and are typically dirty brown or grey in colour. Nigeria is richly blessed with large deposits of Zinc ore in Ebonyi and Benue state. We can export top quality of this product in 1000-1500MT every month.
Our company is dedicated to sourcing high-quality zinc ore from Afghanistan Mines, ensuring that it meets stringent industry standards and specifications. With its characteristic yellow color, zinc ore is a valuable source of this essential metal, widely utilized in industries such as construction, automotive, and appliance manufacturing. Additionally, zinc is vital for human health and finds applications in dietary supplements and skincare products. The purity and consistency of the yellow zinc ore from Afghanistan make it highly sought after for industrial use. Our ethical sourcing practices and commitment to responsible mining and environmental standards further enhance the value of the zinc ore we provide. We take pride in consistently delivering top-grade yellow zinc ore, reflecting our dedication to excellence and customer satisfaction. Trust us to be your reliable source for high-quality zinc ore for industrial applications.
Rising prices of other metals, such as copper and nickel, make zinc a more attractive alternative. While India, Brazil, and South Africa are significant producers of Zinc ore, Nigeria's estimated reserves of untapped Zinc ore are 6 million tons. Zinc ore is found in Cross River, Kaduna, Kebbi and Niger states. Zinc ore in Nigeria is commonly found in deposits, erosion deposits, and minerals transported by water. Commodity 1 provides Zinc ore directly from the mine site to the global market. There are no middlemen involved, only our staff on the ground. We strive to organize smooth and transparent transactions. We believe in building long-term relationships with our customers. We aim to be our customer's Zinc ore supplier. We offer the best prices for our buyers.

The level of radioactivity in zinc ore depends on the thorium and content. Zinc ore containing high levels of thorium and must be handled carefully. Zinc ore composition varies slightly based on the source and what region of Nigeria it is collected. We encourage buyers to ask for a free sample for their composition analysis and evaluation of ready-to-ship material. Samples are free, but buyers should arrange to pick up a free piece with a courier service.
Zinc ore is most commonly found as zinc carbonate (ZnCO3), known as calamine or smithsonite. It generally occurs as rounded, crystalline crusts or granular, honeycombed masses that have a vitreous or pearly luster and are typically dirty brown or grey in colour. Zinc is a chemical element with the symbol Zn and atomic number 30. Zinc is a slightly brittle metal at room temperature and has a shiny-greyish appearance when oxidation is removed. It is the first element in group 12 (IIB) of the periodic table. In some respects, zinc is chemically similar to magnesium: both elements exhibit only one normal oxidation state (+2), and the Zn2+ and Mg2+ ions are of similar size. Zinc is the 24th most abundant element in Earth's crust and has five stable isotopes. The most common zinc ore is sphalerite (zinc blende), a zinc sulfide mineral. The largest workable lodes are in Australia, Asia, and the United States. Zinc is refined by froth flotation of the ore, roasting, and final extraction using electricity (electrowinning).

Lead-zinc ore Primary lead and zinc ores are galena and sphalerite. Non-sulfide It is formed due to hypogene and supergene weathering. Mostly oxide ores like zincite, cerussite may fall under this category. Mixed sulfide-oxide It mostly occurs in the transition and occasionally in the oxidized zone of the deposit.
