saudi arabia mining industry: gold ore and copper ore mining
Saudi Arabia is abundant with oil and the output is 526 million tons. Besides oil, natural gas is also very rich and it is in the fourth in the world. There are other ore mineral resources in this country, such as gold ore, copper ore, iron ore, tin ore, aluminum ore and zinc ore etc. Learn the ore mineral materials and how to mine them will bring high profits for the whole country.
Gold ore is one of the most common ore mineral resources in Saudi Arabia. It has enough gold content and this gold ore can be used for industrial mineral processing. The gold ore in Saudi Arabia can be mined to get pure gold materials. Gold deposit is formed by mineralization and it can be of a certain scale industrial gold ore accumulation. Gold in the earth's crust and mantle is low abundance and scattered.
As the above mentioned, gold ore is rich in Saudi Arabia and the copper ore is also abundant in this country. Copper ore is mined from copper rock mountains. After processing, it can be the high grade copper or copper ore sands. The copper ore can be divided into pyrite, chalcopyrite, barite, chalcocite, blue copper, copper blue and malachite etc. It is mainly used in metallurgical industry as the raw material.
Ore mining processing line refers to the stone mineral materials processed by the mining equipment. The main stages include crushing stage, grinding stage and beneficiation process. Ore mining production line starts with the feeding stage. Feeding equipment will be used to send materials into crushing machine. For the crushing stage, it can be divided into primary crushing process, secondary crushing stage and tertiary crushing process. These crushing stages cooperate with each other to get the large scale ore materials be small ones.
The most used crushing machine has jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, hammer crusher, gyratory crusher and so on. Jaw crusher belongs to the primary crushing machine and is used in the first crushing stage. Cone crusher, impact crusher can be used as the secondary crushing equipment. Gyratory crusher is the high efficient and large scale crusher machine.
Grinding equipment is after the crushing machine working process. In this stage, ore mineral materials will be grinded into smaller size related with the crushed materials. Beneficiation process will help get the clean and high grade ore materials. It mainly refers to the screening, washing and so on.
Ore crusher machine and grinding mill are the necessary machines used in mineral production line.

the biggest oil producers in the middle east
The Middle East includes five of the top ten oil-producing countries and is responsible for producing about 27% of world production. While state-owned enterprises produce much of the oil, many international oil companies engage in oil production and related activities in the Middle East through joint ventures, production-sharing agreements, and other business models.
Saudi Arabia produces almost 12 million barrels of oil per day and nearly 12% of world output. The country ranked as the largest oil producer in the decade from 2003 to 2012, after which it fell to second place due to surging oil production in the United States. Saudi Arabia remains the world's largest petroleum exporter. With proven oil reserves of about 337 billion barrels and relatively low production costs, Saudi Arabia should maintain its position as a top-three oil producer for the foreseeable future.
Saudi Arabia's oil and gas industry is controlled by Saudi Aramco, which is controlled by Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources and the Supreme Council for Petroleum and Minerals. Saudi Aramco is mostly state-owned, but had an initial public offering (IPO) of 1.5% of the company in Dec. 2019.
Meanwhile, although international oil companies do not participate in oil production in Saudi Arabia, several partners with Saudi Aramco in joint-venture refineries and petrochemical plants in the countrypartners include Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Sumitomo Chemical Co., and Total S.A.
Iraq produces about 4.8 million barrels of oil per day and is the sixth-largest producer in the world. The country has achieved substantial production gains since 2005, two years after the start of the Iraq War. However, the country faces challenges that could limit production toward these goals, including political instability, continuing violence, and inadequate infrastructure.
Oil production in most of Iraq falls under the control of the Ministry of Oil in Baghdad. The Ministry operates through several state-owned companies, including the North Oil Company, the Midland Oil Company, the South Oil Company, and the Missan Oil Company. In the autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq, oil production is controlled by the local Ministry of Natural Resources.
More than a dozen major international oil companies are involved in Iraqi oil production. U.S. and European oil majors include Exxon Mobil, Occidental Petroleum, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, and Total S.A. Other international oil giants in Iraq include China National Petroleum Corporation, known as CNPC; China National Offshore Oil Corporation, known as CNOOC; Malaysia's Petroliam Nasional Berhad, known as Petronas; and Gazprom Neft OAO.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven emirates, including Dubai and the capital of the federation, Abu Dhabi. UAE produces just over 4 million barrels per day to rank as the world's seventh-biggest producer. Each of the seven emirates controls oil production within its borders. However, Abu Dhabi is home to most of the proven oil reserves in UAE territory and, thus, it has an outsized role in establishing the federation's oil policy.
The state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) controls oil production operations in Abu Dhabi under the direction of the emirate's Supreme Petroleum Council. Most oil production in Abu Dhabi is organized under production-sharing agreements between ADNOC and international oil companies. Other emirates use similar production-sharing agreements and service contracts to organize oil production. Some of the biggest international companies involved in UAE oil production include BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Total S.A., and ExxonMobil.
Iran is the ninth-largest oil-producing nation in the world, at nearly 3.2 million barrels per day, but the effects of economic sanctions placed on Iran have kept production levels below true potential. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), sanctions have had especially severe effects on upstream oil and gas investment, including numerous canceled investment projects.
In July 2015, Iran came to an agreement with the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in which Iran agreed to strict limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of international economic sanctions. However, the U.S. withdrew from the deal in 2018, as former President Donald Trump fulfilled a campaign promise to exit JCPOA, which he labeled a "disaster" and the "worst deal ever." Then, in 2019, the U.S. imposed additional economic sanctions in response to a drone attack on an oil facility in Saudi Arabia, which U.S. officials blamed on Iran.
Oil and gas production in Iran is controlled by the state-owned National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) under the direction of the Supreme Energy Council. While the Iranian constitution bans private or foreign ownership of the country's natural resources, international companies have historically participated in oil exploration and development in the country through buyback contracts, a contract model that does not convey equity rights to the international company.
Kuwait produces almost 3 million barrels of oil per day, placing it just inside the top 10 oil producers in the world. It has maintained consistent production of between about 2.5 million and 3 million barrels per day, but, according to the EIA, Kuwait has been struggling to raise production to 4 million barrels per day during this period, falling short due to inadequate foreign investment and related delays in new oil production projects.
The Ministry of Oil carries out oil policy in Kuwait through the state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corporation and its subsidiaries. International oil companies have long been denied access to Kuwait because the Kuwaiti constitution does not allow foreign companies ownership stakes in Kuwaiti natural resources or the revenues associated with those resources. This means standard joint ventures and production-sharing agreements used in other countries are outlawed in Kuwait.
stone crusher project report in india
India has rich mineral resources, and some of them occupy an important positionin the world market. The productions of chromite, coal, and barite rank third in the world, while the production of iron oreranks fourth. And bauxite and manganese ore productions rank sixth in the world. In order to process these mineral resources into small pieces, we need to use a variety of professional ore mining equipment. SBM is a professional stone crusher manufacturer, and it has more than 20 years experience. Because of perfect performance, our products efficient stone crushers are widely used in the ore crushing project in India. Here we will introduce a limestone crushing project and a pebble crushing project in India for you.
In 2012, a customer from India contacted with our customer service staff online. Through communication we learned that he wanted to buy a complete crushing and screening line for processing limestone. The size of the raw material is about 200 mm. And he required that the final particle size of 30 mm,and the production capacity can reach 250 tons / hour. This Indian customer also reflected that the mining site is relatively poor, so he had to find another venue to set up production line.
After a detailed understanding, our experienced engineers designed a complete limestone crushing line according to the customers specific situation and requirement of capacity and final grain size. Because the size of the raw material is about 200 mm, so there is no need for primary crushing. We can send to raw limestone to impact crusher directly for fine crushing. In this way, it can save investment of the jaw crusher. Due to the hardness of the limestone is not high, so we recommend customer to use our PFW1315 impact crusher.
Of course, we need add a vibrating feeder to feed limestone continuously and evenly. And we also need a vibrating screen to screen the final products into different sizes. At the same time, belt conveyor is used to connect the machines and improve the production lines automation degree. For the environment of mining site is poor and cant build production line, we recommend customer to adopt our mobile impact crusher. It including all of the above equipment, and it can directly reach the scene to conduct mining operations. In this way, it can reduce the amount of infrastructure and transportation costs. This Indian user was satisfied with our plan and bought our mobile impact crusher. He thought that our mobile crusher is withreasonable price, as well as perfect performance.
India has coal resources, the total coal reserves of about 240 billion tons. Because of rich coal resource, Indian coal industry has developed rapidly in recent year. India has become the third-largest coal producer in the world.
Recently, an Indian customer contacted with us. He already has a coal crushing line. Customers have reported that the production costs of this coal crushing line are very high, because the raw coal caused serious damage to the jaw plate, hammer, impact plate and other wear parts. All of these wear parts need to be replaced frequently, which greatly increasing the cost of production. So he wanted to build a new coal crushing line instead. For this Indian customer's requirements, we recommend him to choose jaw crusher and cone crusher. First of all, send the raw coal to jaw crusher by vibrating feeder evenly for primary crushing. After screening, the crushed materials which meet the required size will be transported to cone crusher. Eventually, the Indian customertook our suggestion, and bought a jaw crusher and a cone crusher from our company.
