Supply update: Solvay’s Namibia mine becomes first major victim of weak market conditions
Solvay has suspended production at its
Okorusu fluorspar mine in Namibia, taking over 80,000 tpa of
acidspar capacity off the market.
The closure comes as a result of weak
market conditions which have made extraction uneconomical from
the mine, which has been in operation for 26 years.
