Coltan {also columbite-tantalite and known industrially as tantalite} is a dull black metallic ore from which the elements niobium and tantalum are extracted. The niobium-dominated mineral is columbite hence the “col” half of the term. The mineral concentrates dominated by tantalum are referred to as tantalite.

Tantalite forms a series with the mineral columbite. In fact the two are often grouped together as a semi-singular mineral call columbite-tantalite in many mineral guides.

Tantalite is the most widespread tantalum mineral and makes for an important ore of the industrially useful metal. They are used in the production of tantalum based capacitors and alloys for strength and higher melting point, in glass to increase the index of refraction and in surgical steel as it is non – reactive and non-irritating to body tissue.

Tantalite’s greatest difference from columbite is it’s much greater specific gravity 8.0+ compared to columbite’s 5.2.

Large deposits of Tantalite are known to occur in Nasarawa, Gombe and Kogi States as well as the Federal Capital Territory. The deposits are both alluvial and primary in the numerous pegmatite bodies that infest these areas.


Tin ore {Cassiterite} is the second –easiest ore to mine. It is mined from tin veins. Cassiterite is a tin oxide mineral, SnO2. It is generally opaque but it is translucent in thin crystals. Its luster and multiple crystal faces produce a desirable gem. Cassiterite has been the chief tin ore throughout ancient history and remains the most important source of tin today.
