How is our Columbite-Tantalite mined?
Columbite-Tantalite is mined in a fairly basic process; dozens of men work together digging large craters in streambeds, scraping away dirt from the surface in order to get to the Columbite-Tantalite underground. The workers then slosh water and mud around in large washtubs, allowing the Columbite-Tantalite to settle at the bottom due to its heavy weight. Each of our workers produces about one kilogram of Columbite-Tantalite a day.
