MAHUMAPELO, N.P.  e  MAGASENG, C.. Beneficiation of marble from Griekwastad, Northern Cape Province. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2014, vol.114, n.11, pp.951-955. ISSN 2411-9717.

This paper is based on a study to determine the potential beneficiation opportunities for marble from Griekwastad in the Northern Cape Province. The marble was characterized mineralogically by X-ray diffraction. Major and trace elements were determined using inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy. The sample was crushed, and the crushed material beneficiated by tumbling and polishing. The resulting beads were incorporated into a variety of jewellery and other decorative items. It is concluded that the beneficiation of Griekwastad marble presents a good opportunity for value addition and job creation, provided that an effective marketing strategy for the products can be developed..
