Fluorite is widely used in the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid and smelting which is a very vital industrial and chemical raw material. Fluorite as a strategic resource, some countries adopt targeted protection policies. Take China as an example. Since 2003, China has stopped issuing new fluorite mining licenses to protect fluorite resources, and China is the main supplier of fluorite. This also means that the world's supply of fluorite will be greatly affected.

Actually, China is not only the country with the largest fluorite reserves, but also has a large demand for fluorite consumption. China will import parts of fluorite to overcome the shortage of domestic supply under the influence of resource policies. As our downstream customers are in great demand, we are sourcing large quantities of high-grade fluorite lump or concentrate.
