Tantalite (Fe, Mn)Ta 2 O 6 is the most important mineral for tantalum extraction Tantalite has the same mineral structure as columbite (Fe, Mn) (Ta, Nb) 2 O 6; when there is more tantalum than niobium it is called tantalite and when there is more niobium than tantalum is it called columbite (or niobite)

This mechanism includes the activation of oxidation of iron atoms in the surface layer of tantalite and columbite with the transition from Fe(II) to Fe(III), destruction of the zircon surface with the formation of oxygen-vacancy defects of the SiO 3 2-- and SiO 2 0-types, and intense dissolution of iron- and silicate-bearing films from the .
Tantalite, [(Fe, Mn) Ta2O6], is a mineral that is close to columbite In fact, the two are often grouped together as a semi-singular mineral called columbite-tantalite in many mineral guid But Tantalite has a much greater specific gravity than Columbite (80+ compared to Columbite's 52) Tantalite is black to brown in both color and streak
Columbite-tantalite solubilities in subaluminous and peraluminous melts (ASI 102 and 122) are strongly temperature dependent, increasing by a factor of 10 to 20 from 800 to 1035°C By contrast columbite-tantalite solubility in the peralkaline composition (ASI 064) is only weakly temperature dependent, increasing by a factor of less .
The dissolution reactions of Nb and Ta from columbite and tantalite in the aqueous solutions of HF, HF-HC1, NH4F-HCI, HF-H2SO4, and NH4F-H2SO4 were kinetically studied in the temperature range of 333 to 353 K The presence of both H+ and F- in the leachant is necessary for the fast dissolution of columbite and tantalite The increase in these ion concentrations and the elevation of temperature .
