The Value of Gypsum:

Gypsum is very malleable. In fact, gypsum plaster combination with water becomes so malleable and easy to shape. This is why builders and artists favour this malleable property of gypsum plaster. Infact, artists prefer gypsum plaster for use in moulding of interior design elements and sculptural forms.

Furthermore, Gypsum sets very quickly. In fact, Gypsum plaster sets, or dries, quickly. However, some gypsum plasters contain retarders to slow drying time, which is also good for artists and other users. It’s easily combined with line. And since line is slow to set, the combination of the two makes gypsum plasters set at a medium speed. The plaster from this combination does not crack from the contraction of lime, nor does it overly enlarge from the expansion of gypsum. In fact, Gypsum plaster’s shape remains intact for a long time.

Firthermore, Gypsum plaster resist fire. This is because Gypsum contains nearly 50 percent water. This accounts for why gypsum plaster is fire resistance. In fact,  at high temperatures, gypsum does not readily burn because it first releases its water molecules. This quality of fire resistance contributes to gypsum’s desirability for building and construction works.

Uses of Gypsum:

These include:

  • For settling particles in ponds
  • For brewing beer and making mead
  • And for creating drywall, wallboard or plasterboard
  • For binding tennis court clay
  • As moulds for dinnerware, car windows and dental impression plasters
  • As a hardening element in Portland cement
  • In roads and highways
  • As sidewalk or classroom chalk
  • And much, much more.

Gypsum Exploration Exploitation Business Plan with Feasibility Study – The Nigerian Mining Industry:

Mining industry of Nigeria is yet at a low development stage. In fact, this is why the mining of minerals in Nigeria accounts for only 0.3% of its GDP. Indeed, the domestic mining industry is very underdeveloped, saturated only with artisanal miners made up of legal and illegal miners. This had led to Nigeria importing minerals that it could easily produce domestically.

Furthermore, over 44 mineral occurrences have been reported in Nigeria. And, a good number of these minerals are estimated to exist in commercial quantities. These include Gypsum, Nickel, zinc/lead, Bitumen, Iron Ore, granite and Coal.  Other Nigeria’s solid mineral resources include tin, limestone, niobium, gold, talc, rock salt,  gemstones, kaolin, tantalite and columbite. In recent years, research reveals that the British Geological Survey discovered several significant uranium deposits in a handful of states in Nigeria.

In fact, economic history of Nigeria tells us that in the 1970’s, Nigeria was a recognized global mining destination, with significant production of coal, tin and columbite. That went down after the civil war and then came the influence of crude oil that cleared off what was left of its contribution to the economy.

 Economic Benefits of Mining:

As a matter of fact, the Economic Benefits of Mining in Nigeria can be summarised as follows:

  • Provision of  livelihood to local communities.
  • Generating income for the local government
  • Promotion of economic activities in the mining communities.
  • Promoting a more efficient use of energy and construction materials, thus saving people money.
  • Promotion of environmental awareness through rehabilitation programs

Challenges of Mining Industry:

Again, this can be summarised as follows:

  • Infrastructural deficiencies. No good roads and lack of regular power and water supply.
  • Little or no large scale mining ongoing
  • Lack of investment fund – No direct foreign investment
  • Politics
  • Regulatory shortfalls.
  • And many more
