Fluorite is an important mineral raw material in the modern industry, widely used in metallurgy, chemical industry, aluminum smelting and other fields. In 2011, the global fluorite reserves reached about 240 million tons, mainly distributed in South Africa, Mexico, China and Mongolia; the fluorite reserves of these four countries accounted for about 50% of the world’s total reserves.
China, Western Europe and the United States are major fluorite consumers, accounting for about 80% of the total fluorite consumption. The United States and Western Europe mainly demand for acid fluorite which is mainly used in the production of hydrofluoric acid; in China, cement and glass industries generate the largest demand for fluorite, and the fluorite demand from the fluorine chemical industry is growing rapidly.
In 2011, the fluorite reserves approximated 24 million tons in China, mainly in Inner Mongolia, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Hunan and Fujian provinces whose total reserves accounted for 80% of national total. Chinas fluorite reserves account for only 1/10 of the global total, but its output accounts for more than 50%, with serious over-exploitation. In recent years, China has introduced a variety of measures to protect fluorite resources, so the fluorite output has remained stable. Chinas fluorite output hit 3.3 million tons in 2011.
