Commodity: Tantalum-bearing pegmatites, gem quality tourmaline and aquamarine potential, exploration projects.
Aquamarine: is a sea green to blue variety of the mineral beryl; transparent, facetable stones are considered as coloured gemstones.
Beryl: a mineral with the chemical formula Be3Al2Si6O18; coloured varieties (green, blue, yellow, pink) are considered as gemstones if found as transparent, facetable stones.
Cassiterite: is Tin Oxide, SnO2
Chrysoberyl: a rather rare, mostly yellowish mineral with the chemical formula Be3Al2O4; transparent, facetable stones are considered as highly prized gemstones.
Coltan: is the short term for columbite-tantalite and known industrially as tantalite; it is a dull black metallic ore from which the elements niobium and tantalum are extracted.
Migmatite: a composite rock composed of igneous or igneous-appearing and/or metamorphic materials that are generally distinguishable megascopically.
Niobium: a chemical element with the symbol Nb.
Pegmatite: is an exceptionally coarse-grained igneous rock, with interlocking crystals, usually found as irregular dikes, lenses, or veins, esp. at the margins of granitic intrusions
Proterozoic: is a geological eon representing the time just before the proliferation of complex life on Earth. The Proterozoic Eon extended from 2500 Ma to 542.0±1.0 Ma (million years ago),
Ta2O5: is ditantalum pentoxide.
Tantalite: a mostly dark grey to black mineral, iron bearing varieties are called ferrotantalite or tantalite-Fe ; a major tantalum ore.
Tantalum: a chemical element with the symbol Ta
Topaz: a mineral with the chemical formula Al2(SiO4)(F,OH)2; coloured varieties (green, blue, yellow, pink, red) are considered as gemstones if found as transparent, facetable stones.
Tourmaline: a very complex borosilicate mineral which may occur in all colours ; particularly red, green and pink varieties are considered as gemstones if found as transparent, facetable stones.
