Abstract

It is estimated that Nigeria has over 100 million tons of lead ore deposit and it is an important component in car battery, however, significant amounts are also used to make lead sheets and pipe. It is also used to make low-melting-point alloys. Silver which is often produced as a by-product is also an important raw material. The prospect of Galena in global economy is promising, so the automotive industry which is closely related to the lead market, is witnessing growth thereby creating more demands for the product. Galena is an important mineral in this era of green energy revolution, therefore, this paper seeks to examine the occurrence of Galena in Nigeria, its composition, properties and financial viability or otherwise of establishing Lead ore mine in Nigeria.
