Vietnam is aiming to develop its domestic
refractories industry to serve its burgeoning
aluminium and steel sectors
Vietnam hosts abundant mineral resources, including barytes, bauxite, and clays. In addition, the country has significant resources of industrial minerals suitable for use in the foundries and refractories markets, which are discussed below.
The results of geological investigation and exploration within Vietnam found many mineral resources suitable for use in the metallurgical industry. Some of these can be used directly in the process of steel production, while others are used to manufacture the refractories.
In order to meet the developmental requirement of Vietnams aluminium and steel industries in the coming years, the investment to strengthen the exploitation of refractory minerals and production of a refractory base is more pressing than ever.
In this article, we wish to deal with the main mineral resource groups discovered in recent times as well...
