Antimony Ore | MSquare Mining

Antimony is a lustrous tin-white metal. Although it is usually described as a metal, it possesses mixed metallic and nonmetallic characteristics, and is more properly described as a semimetal or metalloid. The antimony ore found in our mine is Stibnite, which is a sulfide bearing ore and is concentrated using a froth flotation process.
