Globally speaking, the phosphorite resources are mainly distributed in Africa, North America, South America, Asia and
Middle East. More than 80% of phosphorite resources are concentrated Morocco, Western Sahara, South Africa, the U.S.,
China, Jordan, and Russia. At present, China boasts an annual yield of 60-plus million tons of phosphate ore – a figure far
higher than that in such countries and regions as the U.S., and Morocco, Western Sahara.
Though China boasts abundant phosphate rock resources reserves, the reserves of high-grade phosphorite is low. The
phosphorite resources reserves in China ranks second in the world – second only to Morocco and Western Sahara. At the
close of 2007, China boasts 176 tons of identified phosphorite reserves, which is 105 tons of standard minerals through
conversion; there is 1.66 billion tons (1.76 billion tons for standard minerals) of phosphorite resources reserves with a P2O5
content of 30% and above; if the present development mode of “mining rich mineral and ignoring poor minerals” is
continued, the phosphorite resources in China will be exhausted in the next 20 years.
Yunnan, Guizhou, Sichuan and Hubei are the four Chinese provinces with the richest reserves of phosphorite resources; of
which, the annual yield of phosphorite in Hubei province exceeds 20 million tons, making it the top province in terms of
yield of phosphorite resources. However, the phosphorite output per factory in Hubei province is only 214,000 tons, which is
not only lower than those in Yunnan and Guizhou with 636,700 tons and 544,300 tons, respectively, but also significantly
lower than the national average of 318,600 tons. The integration of phosphorite resources in Hubei province and the whole
country has become an inevitable trend in the future.
Due to the rarity of phosphorite resources to a certain extent, coupled with wanton mining cases in China – only 15%-30%
resources utilization rate for small phosphorite mines while the large mines can reach 60%-80% utilization rate, the major
provinces with large phosphorite resources in China have taken measures to control the mining of small phosphorite mines
and have realized achievements to a certain degree. For example, the number of phosphorite mines in Hubei has reduced the
original 284 to 145. Recently, the 12th Five-year Plan of Chemical and Mineral Products Industry has attached
unprecedented importance to the role of phosphorite resources, and required the establishment of the phosphorite resources
reserve mechanism in the next five years, and boosted the requirements for market access for phosphorite mining.
Meanwhile, the various major provinces for phosphorite production have commenced to proactively introduce integration
plans, and the prices of phosphorite have shown an upward trend.
