essentially mixed tantalite and columbite the name stemming from the previous use of ‘columbium’ for niobium , the principal sources are found in pegmatite ore bodies in countries such as the democratic republic of congo, rwanda, burundi and other central african countries. concerned by the reported sale of illegally mined coltan to fund .
columbium niobium and tantalum were mined by asyst mines, comptoirs miniers de burundi s.a., hamza, and habonimana but the production of columbite-tantalite ore decreased considerably to 23,356 kg in 2004 from 72,441 kg in 2002 because low world market prices saw a slump in the demand for tantalum oxide in 2004.
