From the type specimen, Hatchett named the new element columbium (now called niobium). The current species, columbite-(Fe) retains the old root name and has the suffix -(Fe) to indicate the dominance of iron in the species. Columbite was the second species named from the USA, after celestine (q.v.)
Columbite is the niobium-rich member, and Tantalite is the tantalum-rich member. Columbite is named after its niobium content, which was previous known as columbium prior to its renaming. Columbite is the most important mineral containing the rare element niobium and is its main ore. The name Columbite has been discredited by the IMA, with the ...
Columbite, also called niobite, niobite-tantalite and columbate [ ( Fe, Mn) Nb 2 O 6 ], is a black mineral group that is an ore of niobium. It has a submetallic luster and a high density and is a niobate of iron and manganese. This mineral group was first found in Haddam, Connecticut, in the United States.
Columbite, also called niobite, niobite-tantalite and columbite [ (Fe, Mn) Nb2O6], is a black mineral group that is an ore of niobium. It has a submetallic luster and a high density and is a niobate of iron and manganese. Columbite has the same composition and crystal symmetry (orthorombic) as tantalite.
The mining of columbite/tantalite (COLTAN) has a negative effect on the different spheres of the environment notably; hydrosphere, lithosphere, and the atmosphere (Eisler 2004 ). Just like gold mining, COLTAN extraction involves the breaking of crystallographic bond in the mineral ore to get the products in the pure form.
Coltan (short for columbite–tantalites and known industrially as tantalite) is a dull black metallic ore from which the elements niobium and tantalum are extracted. The niobium-dominant mineral in coltan is columbite (after niobium's original American name columbium ), and the tantalum-dominant mineral is the tantalite. 
Coal can be mined by both the open cast mining method and the underground mining method. Nigeria's most exploited coal mines are located at Enugu where NCC operated two underground coal mines and commercial production started in 1916, the peak in coal production was in the late 1950s reaching approximately 920,000 tons per annum.

Available online: 9 February 2019 characterization of Columbite mining on vicinity farmland soils on the Yelwa K E Y W O R D S Mining activities are one of the numerous ways by which man impacts on his environment. In this study, two non-destructive analytical techniques (XRF and XRD) were employed in the mineralogical
The maximum columbite solubility was ~ 10 − 2 m Ta and Nb in 1 m HF solutions at 300 °C. Chloride, carbonate, and bicarbonate had negligible effect on columbite solubility, but the stoichiometry of the complexes was not determined and hence no thermodynamic parameters were derived.
Columbite is as an ore of the rare element s niobium and tantalum. NOTEWORTHY LOCALITIES Columbite occurs in many of the important pegmatite districts worldwide. It has been found in many locations in Minas Gerais, Brazil, especially at Araçuaí; Governador Valadares; and São José da Safira.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for proposed non‐metal mining projects. Both the TOR and the cross referenced EIA Technical Review Guidelines for Mining should be used to establish minimally acceptable conditions for satisfying the requirement to submit an EIA. The TOR is divided into three
concentrations were found effective at 77.95% recovery for columbite from the Rayfield tailing dump. This study also provided database for optimum recovery of columbite from tailings of mining sites of similar composition.

ELAW has helped partners around the world evaluate dozens of EIAs for proposed mining projects. The Guidebook consolidates what we have learned and points to many critical resources for communities seeking to make their voices heard about proposed mining projects. If printing out the Guidebook poses a hardship, copies are available by request.
MRDS mine locations are often very general, and in some cases are incorrect. Some mine remains have been covered or removed by modern industrial activity or by development of things like housing. The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains. Satelite image of the Columbite Mine.
