Taïba Mine Site: Phosphate… for life
Senegal has extensive reserves of exceptionally high quality phosphate. Marketable phosphate from TAÏBA (with a standard of 79 BPL), which has been mined since 1960 in Ndomor Diop and more recently in Keur Mor Fall and Tobène, is synonymous with excellence around the world.

 

The operating base of the ICS Group is the Taïba mine site located 100km from Dakar and its activities currently revolve around the Keur Mor Fall and Tobène deposits.
The opening of the Tobène mining panel will bring Taïba mine production capacity to 2 million tons of marketable phosphate per annum, with reserves estimated between 60 and 70 million tons.
 
Description
The phosphate ore is buried under a layer of sand 30 to 40 metres deep. The thickness of the ore seam is between 7 and 10 metres. The ore is made up of marketable phosphate, sand, clay or mud and flint.

Marketable phosphate is consumed as is by the phosphoric acid plants in DAROU, or can be dried and sent to the Dakar port, for export.
After they are mined, some of the quarries are filled in and turned over to local farmers, who find the soil rich and fertile, and suitable for market gardening and intensive farming.
