Youssoufia Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Mining started in 1931, in the north-western part of the site, and was behind the creation of the Youssoufia phosphate mining centre, at the time known under as Louis Gentil. In Youssoufia, underground mining is practiced, using modern techniques. The method used is known as forewinning and pillar extraction. Mechanized pillar extraction is carried out by longwalls, and forewinning by "cutters-loaders" (tunnel-boring machines). The annual extraction potential is around 1.2 million tons of phosphate. Underground mining is 100% mechanized. Each production unit is equipped with a stone removal and screening station and a stock yard. Two types of treatment are used: drying for "clear" phosphate and calcining for "black" phosphate. The former aims at reducing moisture to less than 2% to obtain marketable product. In the latter, raw ore undergoes a heat treatment (above 700°C) to remove the organic matters it contains. This process also allows improvement of the quality of the product. The annual beneficiation potential is 7.6 million tons. In addition, the site has 2 train loading stations with a total capacity of nearly 20 million tons per year. Phosphate rock beneficiated is thus railed to Safi to feed the fertilizer and phosphoric acid manufacturing plants. Part of the production is intended for export and is shipped from the Safi, Jorf Lasfar and Casablanca bulk ports.
